Neinver opened Prague The Style Outlets, its first outlet centre in the Czech Republic and the 16th centre in the company’s expanding portfolio, which totals 300,000 sqm of gross leasable area (GLA). The centre features over 100 stores in 20,000 sqm of GLA. The new centre is part of a joint venture between Neinver and The Prague Outlet signed in 2016 to create the largest outlet centre in the Czech Republic, with a total investment of €70 million. A second phase will increase the total commercial space to 30,000 sqm in the coming years. The outlet centre will bring over 600 jobs and considerable tourist spending to the local economy.
Prague The Style Outlets opens for business with key sought-after international retail brands such as Adidas, Benetton, Bogner, Frankie Morello, Gattinoni, Geox, Hispanitas, IXOX, Karl Lagerfeld, Lacoste, Marina Militare, Massimo Rebecchi, Nike, Palmers, Pepe Jeans, Trussardi, and Versace Jeans. Also, popular toys store Hamleys opens its first European outlet store at the centre. Around 20 percent of the brands are Czech and some retailers have chosen Prague The Style Outlets for their initial entry into the Czech market. The fashion line-up is complemented by a quality food offer that features retailers such as La Pasteria, Salanda and Flo café.
Given its proximity to the airport—less than 5 minutes from Prague International Airport—and its strong tourism component, it will offer amenities for international visitors and travellers such as flight arrival/departure screens, currency exchange, VAT refund, luggage lockers, taxi services with special rates to and from the airport, bus connection and help with check-in online.
Together with its commercial offer and its food and beverage options, Prague The Style Outlets includes a wide range of hospitality services that complete the shopping experience, such as a concierge desk, free Wi-Fi, a mobile charging station, baby care rooms, chill-out zones, terraces and playground areas. For easy access, services also include 2,400 free parking spaces, electric car charging stations, and public transport links, with a bus stop in front of the centre.
Prague The Style Outlets is the latest addition to The Style Outlets international platform, which now operates in 10 European locations including cities such as Madrid, Barcelona and Milan.
