Outlet shopping destination Harbour Town Gold Coast will open 25 new outlet stores next week as part of its $20 million expansion.

In anticipation of the launch on 27 May, the Outlet Centre has announced a number of outlet stores that will open as ‘firsts’ for Australia, Queensland and the Gold Coast.

International sports apparel brand Under Armour will open their first Australian store; swimwear brand Tigerlily will make its Queensland outlet debut; and Kathmandu, Peter Jackson and Lindt will be opening their first outlet offerings on the Gold Coast.

These five brands will be among 25 new stores opening in Harbour Town’s new North Western Mall, and are set to offer shoppers 30 to 70 per cent off the recommended retail price.

“We’re thrilled to see the eight-month expansion works in the final stages of completion,” says Harbour Town centre manager Gary Webb.

“We anticipate that our shoppers will be delighted with the selection and quality of stores opening next week and during the months thereafter, as they can take advantage of further savings on popular products across a great range of new international and home-grown Australian brands.”

The new retailers will join a range of brands that already have outlet stores at Harbour Town, including Coach, Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Oroton, UGG, Nike and Victoria’s Secret.

From 27-29 May, the new Lindt store will be giving away one kilogram of Lindor chocolate balls to each of the first 100 customers who spend $10 or more in store each day.

The Lindt store will also be offering 50 per cent off the Fill Your Own Pick and Mix Gift Box ranges for its first two weeks.

“Our opening events are always a busy but fun time, and are a great opportunity to introduce our concept to the local community,” says Lindt Australia CEO Stephen Loane.

“We are thrilled to be expanding our store network to the Gold Coast; the new location is a perfect addition to our retail portfolio.”
