Christmas shoppers drive 20% sales rise at McArthurGlen

Sales of designer collections and accessories drove a 20% increase in like-for-like sales over Christmas at designer outlet group McArthurGlen.

The group, which has seven UK centres, said it saw sales surge between December 17 to 30 as shoppers sought out cheaper designer clothing and last minute gifts. The start of the Boxing Day Sale also drove a 13% rise in year-on-year sales.

Henrik Madsen, managing director of McArthurGlen, said: “This Christmas again exceeded our expectations, delivering double-digit growth across the UK portfolio for the third consecutive year. Together with our strong fashion offering, Christmas sales were significantly boosted by shoppers buying presents for family and friends at up to 60% less.”

McArthurGlen has centres in Ashford, Bridgend [Wales], Cheshire Oaks, East Midlands, Livingston [Scotland], Swindon and York. In the run up to Christmas, it added 15 new stores, including Lulu Guinness, Joseph, Pretty Green, Reiss and UGG, to its existing mix, which includes Mulberry, Pringle of Scotland, Escada, Nicole Farhi, Ted Baker, The Kooples.
