Premium mall at Canberra Outlet
Canberra Outlet Centre has announced the development of a new premium mall. Offering an “elevated shopping experience”, the new component of Canberra Outlet Centre in Fyshwick will see the arrival of high-end brands such as Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein, who will be opening flagship stores as part of stage one of the project. “The addition of these international brands will see a new calibre of premium shopping currently not available in the ACT, offering international visitors the opportunity to shop luxury high-end brands they’re accustomed to in other national cities in Australia,” says Graham Terry, Managing Director of RetPro, who has managed the centre since 2013. The premium mall is expected to feature high-end finishes such as architecturally designed floor and ceiling treatments to really up the level of luxe for shoppers.
