The Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages located on the outskirts of nine major European cities provide groups with high-end shopping experiences. A unique retail concept, Chic Outlet Shopping® is a Collection of shopping destinations, each offering a sophisticated and quintessentially European experience to groups looking for top-tier luxury labels with significant savings.
The Villages are located near London, Dublin, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Milan, Brussels, Frankfurt and Munich. Value Retail, the developer and operator of the Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages, is the only company to specialise exclusively in the development and operation of luxury outlet shopping destinations, and will open the newest Village to the Collection in China in early 2014. Each Village offers tax-free savings on a great selection of previous seasons’ collections of high-end luxury brands, including Yves Saint Laurent, Anya Hindmarch, Missoni, Class Roberto Cavalli among many more, as well as niche luxury European brands that you might not find elsewhere. The products are always authentic; they’re not made for outlets, as is often the case with other outlets, and they’re always up to 60%, and sometimes more, off the recommended retail price.
Chic Outlet Shopping®offers more than high-end shopping, however. Their locations makes them a convenient option for event organisers who want to get away from the urban bustle for a pre- or post-event trip, whilst still having the city easily accessible. Clients are transported to the Village, spend around three to four hours of tax free shopping and enjoying a relaxing lunch or dinner. The Villages are a whole destination experience in themselves.
For groups, Chic Outlet Shopping® offers a variety of key pillars. They have created a bespoke offer which includes a dedicated welcome package with food and beverages, shopping experience services that include style consultants and hands-free shopping, and access for smaller and higher-end groups to their VIP Lounges at select Villages, as well as the sale of Gift Cards. They also arrange luxury transportation through their Shopping Express™ and chauffeur-driven service consisting of luxury or executive cars. Meet and greets are available for groups and a full orientation can be provided at the Village Tourist Information or Welcome Centres. Chic Outlet Shopping® hosts groups from 25 to 250 people, sometimes as large as 350 people, but there is no limit to group sizes. On top of this, they offer MICE groups a VIP Card for a further 10% savings.
