James Saunders, chief operating officer for Quintain, said: “We spent a great deal of time finding out what local people really wanted and needed from London Designer Outlet and then focused on bringing this to life.
“This means that alongside high end labels LDO will offer trusted brands that appeal to a huge range of people.
“We expect the appealing range of shops offering unbeatable discounts on current season lines to ensure the outlet becomes a major destination for astute bargain hunters.”
As part of the opening celebrations this autumn, LDO will inspire the local community with a colourful festival of activity involving hundreds of people from nearby schools and dance groups.
The event has been conceived and developed by the international design company behind the London 2012 Athlete’s Parade and Paralympics Closing Ceremony.
