Sales of holiday fashion and bikinis saw increases over the week. Bluewater management said that early reports from retailers showed many had had sales increases in line with the increased footfall.
Bluewater general manager Andrew Parkinson said: "Great weather for gardeners was great news for Bluewater this weekend. Sales of holiday fashion, bikinis and luggage all showed positive increases over the weekend.
"We also benefited from a strong advertising campaign and events programme, which was used by many of our retailers to launch their summer promotional activity. It is a challenging market so we need to innovate and maximise every opportunity."
