After five months in construction, Canberra Outlet will officially be lifting the hoarding on their brand-new, luxe Premium Mall in the coming weeks.
And honestly, with Christmas just over 10 weeks away (yep, you read that correctly, T-E-N), it couldn’t come soon enough.
The milestone opening is set to take place across two opening weekends.
Next Saturday 26 October will see Tommy Hilfiger, Oroton, Calvin Klein and Calvin Klein Tailored grace the halls and marble floors, and to celebrate, Canberra Outlet is throwing a weekend-long party.
“There will be plenty of lush festivities including complimentary sweet treats, ultra ‘grammable activations, live entertainment and access to exclusive competitions, giveaways and store offers,” says Canberra Outlet’s Centre Manager Jodee Marques.
From 10 am – 6 pm Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October, shoppers will be treated to exclusive store offers including up to 70% off storewide at Tommy Hilfiger and a double VIP 20% off offer at Calvin Klein.
“We’re also treating the first 100 shoppers with VIP access to our lucky-dip wall containing centre gift vouchers ranging from $10 through to $200,” says Jodee.
Round two of the grand opening celebrations will take place on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 November, with Ralph Lauren and UGG opening their doors. This might also be a great time to mention that this is Canberra’s one-and-only UGG store (come to mama you sweet, plush, feels-like-I’m-walking-on-a-cloud slippers).
“On the second exciting weekend, shoppers can expect even more activations, store offers and complimentary sweet treats,” says Jodee.
“Additionally, those who make a purchase in any of our Premium Mall stores over that weekend will have the opportunity to ‘play to win’ an abundance more store and centre vouchers and gift cards.”
And if that weren’t enough pizzazz for you, the centre has also announced another little gem of a store that will be opening before the festive season really hits.
“We are thrilled to announce that Swarovski will also be opening in the centre. It’s one of only three outlet stores the premium brand has in the entire country,” says Jodee.
Well, it seems like the imminent last-minute Christmas dash might actually not be so bad this year.
