First in­ter­na­tional out­let mall in Phl set to open next week

The Philippine Star - - BUSINESS -

Ex­cite­ment is def­i­nitely build­ing up for the open­ing of the coun­try’s first true in­ter­na­tional out­let mall along Km 48, Aguinaldo High­way in Silang, Cavite.

“Acienda De­signer Out­let is ready to wel­come shop­pers and tourists ev­ery­day start­ing with our open­ing on Oct. 26,” said Jef­frey Ng, pres­i­dent of lo­cal devel­oper Cathay Land.

The project is ex­pected to draw thou­sands of shop­pers daily since all par­tic­i­pat­ing brands of­fer a min­i­mum of 30 per­cent to as high as 80 per­cent dis­count, bar­gains which are def­i­nitely wel­come given the high in­fla­tion and less spend­ing power lo­cal shop­pers have been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing lately.

“While the hefty dis­counts in fash­ion, sports­wear and jew­elry will surely at­tract peo­ple given the cur­rent in­fla­tion­ary cli­mate, even­tu­ally we hope that the per­fect mix of brands and leisure ameni­ties on site will en­tice many to be­come re­peat shop­pers,” Ng said.

Some of the life­style brands that are open­ing in­clude: Archive, Geox, Reef, Sun­glass Haven, 158 De­signer’s Boulevard of SSI Group, Levi’s, Oak­ley, Just Jew­els, Mango, Guess, Mos­simo, The Rail, Kid’s De­pot and RSI, which car­ries Flor­sheim and Nat­u­ral­izer.

Sports and shoe brands geared towards fit­ness buffs in­clude Asics, Onit­suka, Vans, Ore­gon Pre­mium Out­let Store/Nike and Skech­ers.

Ng said that over the next few months, a wide range of other top in­ter­na­tional brands will be added, fur­ther adding to Acienda De­signer Out­let’s stand­ing as the coun­try’s first true in­ter­na­tional out­let mall.

Meawhile, shop­pers will get to re­lax in be­tween shop­ping rounds via a de­tour at Wine Bank, Pizza Ware­house, Cold Stone and Café Pass­cuci. These will all be con­ve­niently lo­cated in the French-style food and bev­er­age sec­tion ac­cented by a three-story wind­mill.

“With the cool year-round weather and the reg­u­lar in­flux of tourists that we ex­pect to drop by on their way to or as they go down from Ta­gay­tay City, Acienda De­signer Out­let will be a fun, hip place to shop around,” said Jay­den Lewis, head of leas­ing for Asia of Freeport Re­tail, Cathay land’s for­eign part­ner for Acienda De­signer Out­let.

The three-story French wind­mill of Acienda De­signer Out­let is ex­pected to launch thou­sands of so­cial me­dia feeds.
