The health of our customers, employees and the employees of our tenants still have first priority. For this we upgraded our health and safety standards and aimed to create a safe and good shopping experience for all participants. We execute people checks at the entrances, provide textile ‘community masks’, improved the customer flow and enhanced the hygiene standards of services and in public areas as well as the support of our tenants with a shop toolbox based on the official corona prevention obligations for retail. Our partners and the local health authorities really appreciate it.”

The Designer Outlet Soltau and the City Outlet Geislingen were both closed since 17thMarch due to the corona shutdown regulations by the responsible states of Germany.With the provision of masks at the centre entrances, the centres are also well equipped for the German ‘community mask’ wearing obligation valid from coming week.

‘The reopening of the both centres will be now the master and benchmark for our whole portfolio across Europe, because the remaining centres are still closed and we will expect further re-openings starting from May on. First learning of the corona crisis for our business is to keep a close contact to our local teams, brand partners, investors, communities and authorities. Solidarity in this crisis is driven by listening, understanding, empathy und a strong team spirit’, supplemented Thomas Reichenauer and looks confidently in the future.
