Outlet group reports growing footfall and sales figures
Lifestyle Outlets, which is part of Peel L&P, has reported another year of strong results, with growing footfall and sales figures across its two operational centres in Manchester and Gloucester.
Lifestyle Outlets figures at the end of the 2019 calendar year revealed a 5.7 per cent year-on-year increase, boosted by a successful Christmas trading period. Both outlets announced a number of new tenant signings throughout the year, with Lowry Outlet unveiling a first-of-its-kind partnership with ITV and Gloucester Quays significantly expanding its retail offering with brands opening their doors in the mall in 2019 including Barbour, H&M, Five Guys, Hotel Chocolat and Radley.
Footfall figures continued to show increase with the Christmas trading period representing a significant increase of 8.4 per cent year-on-year against the same Christmas trading period in 2018.
Jason Pullen, managing director at Lifestyle Outlets said: “Year after year we’re seeing growing figures and increasing visitors, which is testament to our vision and belief that people come first and make places great. This ensures that we offer great destinations that are more than traditional retail experiences”
