The shopping options on the Costa del Sol are just about to get a whole lot bigger and better with the imminent opening of a new Designer Outlet Shopping Centre close to Malaga airport. The new McArthurGlen shopping centre will be situated next to the existing retail park of Plaza Mayor, near Malaga Airport.

The current Plaza Mayor is divided in two and features on one side entertainment options, a 20 screen Yelmo cinema complex (showing films in English), cafes, restaurants and fast food outlets. The other side is designated to shopping with clothing, accessories, cosmetics and shoe stores featuring brands including Zara, H&M, Primor as well as a Mercadona supermarket.

The offering at Plaza Mayor will now be elevated to a whole new level with the opening of a McArthurGlen Outlet Shopping Centre adjacent to the existing Plaza Mayor. The new centre will eventually be home to 170 luxury, designer and high street brands all under one roof. The first 100 stores will be opening 22nd October 2019 with the remaining stores, currently being built, scheduled to open in 2020.

It is exciting times for the Costa del Sol with the property market booming and many new developments of apartments, townhouses and villas springing up right along the coast added to that numerous improvements to transport and infrastructure being announced and now the first designer outlet centre in Southern Spain opening on our doorstep. It really is the ideal time to purchase your new home on the Costa del Sol whether you want it as your new permanent residence or as a holiday home in the sun.

The new Designer Outlet Centre will feature both European and American designer stores including Adidas, Adolfo Dominguez, Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein, Diesel, Escada, Lacoste, Polo Ralph Lauren, Puma, Sandro, Tommy Hilfiger and Under Armour amongst others opening their doors this month and offering discounts between 30% and 70% off original high street prices.

The centre has been designed and built to reflect local Andalusian architecture with a modern twist and will include a stunning central square with fountains, children´s play area and sculptures. This unique retail experience is sure to become a top tourist shopping destination in Spain.

Parking is provided at Plaza Mayor but another quick way to get there is by train. The rail line currently runs from Fuengirola via Benalmadena and Torremolinos onwards to Plaza Mayor, Malaga International Airport and into Central Malaga. The trains are clean, reliable (running every 20 minutes) and cheap.
