Special Issue “European Outlet Update”

This online special will be available as a free download until September 26.

Dear Reader,

It gives me great pleasure to present to you the latest ACROSS Online Special. This time we have deliberately chosen– once again–to focus on outlets; for several reasons: First, we consider the designer outlet scene to be one of the most active in the retail real estate sector right now. This is very evident due to a large number of expansions, new leases, staff news, etc. This industry seems to have drawn the right conclusions from the pandemic phase. On the other hand, we believe that the entire retail real estate sector can learn a lot from the outlet scene. Especially when it comes to location branding, location marketing, and cooperation between brands and individual centers. Nowhere else can the meaning of the term ‘collaboration’ be better observed at the moment than at these outlets. And last but not least, it makes me feel very optimistic to see how much people like to visit retail locations such as well-managed designer outlets, feel comfortable there, and enjoy a good deal of shopping at these locations!

I hope you enjoy reading our informative European Outlet Update.

Yours sincerely

Reinhard Winiwarter

Delicacies of the finest quality @Chicken Crime Department Düsseldorf

During my stroll through Düsseldorf's streets, a store immediately caught my eye, both delightful and manageable, but as I said, impossible to miss: the Chicken Crime Department at Ackerstrasse 142 in the creative district of Flingern.

European Retail in 2021 and 2022

One crisis follows the next. While retailers faced nationwide lockdowns, restrictions based on testing, vaccination, or recovery, and already disrupted supply chains last year, the war in Ukraine is bringing the issue of “consumer pricing” to the forefront. Additionally, supply chain disruptions and record energy prices are leading to unseen inflation rates in many European countries for several decades.

With tradition and craftsmanship towards the future@Giobagnara Venice

In probably the most famous district of Venice, San Marco, a company has managed to expand in recent months and now operates five stores just minutes from each other: Giobagnara. Two of these stores are right next to St. Mark's Church, another is located on St. Mark's Square, not far from Caffè Florian (there is a meeting room on the second floor with a wonderful view of St. Mark's Square); the fourth store can be found beside Harry's Bar.
