April 12 sees the opening of McArthurGlen’s latest outlet centre with the debut of the £160m Designer Outlet West Midlands. The company said it’s the only standalone shopping centre to open in the UK this year.
Outlet malls giant McArthurGlen has promoted Nick Brady to its top leasing role. He'll oversee all brand acquisition and asset management for its 25 designer outlets in 10 countries across Europe and in Canada.
With news of so many store closures, it’s encouraging to hear of a major opening with US shoe and lifestyle brand Skechers having opened a flagship store on a key Paris shopping street, Rue de Rivoli.
