Two McArthurGlen Designer Outlets win ICSC Shopping Centre Awards

McArthurGlen scoops two out of the five Awards as Neumünster and Noventa di Piave are announced as winners

Two McArthurGlen Designer Outlets were among the winners of the prestigious 2015 International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) European Shopping Centre Awards, announced at the 40th anniversary of the ICSC European Conference

McArthurGlen took a staggering two out of the five Awards announced at a gala held in London on 22 April. McArthurGlen Noventa di Piave, near Venice, was named Best Established Shopping Centre and McArthurGlen Neumünster, near Hamburg, Best New Development in the Specialty Retail Project category.

The ICSC Jury Members highlighted McArthurGlen Noventa di Piave’s “distinctive design and customer appeal, impressive brand mix, innovative customer service, and high standard of management”, which in turn led to “high customer satisfaction” and “strong sales growth”.

In the case of McArthurGlen Neumünster, the centre earned the judges’ plaudits for its brand mix, its distinctive design, clear master plan and a high standard of management resulting in “an excellent customer experience”.  This has helped establish McArthurGlen Neumünster as a major shopping destination for the region, for residents and for tourists, since opening in 2012.

Julia Calabrese, CEO, McArthurGlen Group, said: “We are absolutely delighted and honoured to have won two prestigious ICSC European Shopping Centre Awards.  This is down to not just the hard work of the McArthurGlen teams, but also to our close collaboration with our brand and investor partners, and with the local communities where we operate.

“At McArthurGlen, we look continuously to bring innovation to what we do in order to create the finest designer outlet experience for all our stakeholders, including our customers, our brands, our investors and the communities where we operate.

“These Awards are testament to the strength of designer outlet retailing. Since we opened Europe’s first designer outlet 20 years ago, designer outlet retailing has established itself to become a distribution channel in its own right. We currently have 20 McArthurGlen Designer Outlets and we are under way to open a further seven over the next two to three years. ”
