The Designer Outlet Algarve was classified as the best Outlet in Portugal, within the scope of the “Outlet Center Performance Report Europe” report for 2021, carried out by the German consultancy Ecostra.
This is the only European study on the economic performance of stores and is considered a benchmark for the European Outlet industry.
The report is based on a European-wide survey of international brand manufacturers on the economic performance of stores operating in different outlets. This survey is carried out annually and the results are updated with the same regularity. In addition to a complete ranking of the centers, according to their economic performance and the tenants’ assessment of the performance of individual operators, this time several questions were asked about the impact of the pandemic.
According to Miguel Guerreiro, Director of Designer Outlet Algarve, “our job is, above all, to provide the best shopping experience to those who visit us, but it is naturally a source of pride to be internationally recognized for the strategies we implement. This report recognizes us, both nationally and internationally, for the enormous effort that ROS Retail Outlet Shopping has made to overcome the new challenges that the pandemic has brought and the motivation for our units to continue to be the preferred destination for our visitors in all of Europe.”
On the other hand, for the second year in a row, ROS Retail Outlet Shopping, the Austrian operator that manages the Designer Outlet Algarve, takes 3rd place as the best European outlet operator to deal with the challenges presented by the covid-19 pandemic. The Group also occupies 4th place in the ranking as the best European Outlet operator in terms of Leasing, Management, and Marketing, registering the greatest improvement of all European operators.
The Designer Outlet Algarve opened in 2017 and currently has 54 stores in an area of 13,000 m2, which allows visitors to enjoy major premium brands with promotions throughout the year.
The open-air Outlet Village concept invites you to shop outdoors to enjoy the best that the region has to offer. Inspired by typical regional architecture, the Designer Outlet Algarve incorporates regional, modern and typical elements in an innovative way, in the image of what the Algarve truly is.
