Do you go on holiday with one suitcase and come back with two or three, even though you are no a robber, tomb raider or a speculator? Well, it’s a very common story if one of your destinations is a town outlet of Chic Outlet Shopping® chain.
Those are great outlet malls; each of them has about 100 boutiques of the most famous brands. These malls can be found in eleven cities, two of which are in China and the other nine are in Europe. At once two malls are here in Spain to satisfy the most demanding needs of shopping lovers: La Roca Village in Barcelona (www.larocavillage.com) and Las Rozas Village in Madrid (www.lasrozasvillage.com).
With the example of the mall in Madrid we will try to show off all the advantages of the outlet villages Chic Outlet Shopping® (www.chicoutletshopping.com), although, they are all different, so each should be treated separately. The outlet town Las Rozas Village, which is situated on a vast territory just half an hour driving from the Spanish capital, is an oasis of shopping, home to boutiques of fashionable clothes and accessories, perfume and cosmetics stores, electronics, optics, and home accessories. In total there are about 100 shops, where you can find more than 430 major international brands and items created by the best local manufacturers. In Las Rozas Village you will find incredible discounts up to 60% off the recommended retail price throughout the year. And in some boutiques it is offered TAX FREE shopping.
First of all, fashionistas from all around the world come here to find new outfits. Here are presented garments and accessories (jewelry, handbags and sunglasses), past seasons collections of the most prestigious brands such as Adolfo Dominguez, Armand Basi, Bally, Belstaff, Bimba & Lola, Bulgari, Burberry, Camper, Custo Barcelona, Calvin Klein Jeans, Diesel, Dolce & Gabbana, Escada Sport, Gant, Hackett, Hoss Intropia, Hugo Boss, Lacoste, La Perla, Sita Murt, Spazio, Roberto Verino, Furla, Ray-Ban, Tous, and many others.
Since Las Rozas Village is a small town, its infrastructure looks similar to a real town. In addition to boutiques, you’ll find all kinds of cafes and restaurants. We should say that the superb two-starred Michelin restaurant Sant Celoni (Paseo de la Castellana No. 57) is situated very close to the village. Since shopping is a responsible activity that does not support hurry, and you can spend the whole day in the mall (and the next day go again and find something new), for that reason here are situated boutique-hotels. And the younger visitors will also be pleased, as here for them are prepared wonderful playgrounds.
When you arrive at Las Rozas Village at the entrance there is a tourist information desk, where you can get detailed maps of the town, we advise you to use it to orient easily in the town.
And if you come with your baby, don’t worry, here you can rent a great baby carriage for him. Also, near the village outlet you will find some incredible monuments protected by UNESCO, as well as some amazing golf courses.
You can reach Las Rozas Village by car or by premium class bus called Shopping Express, which has three trips daily from the center of Madrid. The opening hours of Las Rozas Village are: Monday to Sunday from 10:00 to 21:00 and on Saturday you can enjoy shopping until 22:00. And remember that May 1 is a holiday, so all the shops are closed.
It is almost certain that you will get home with all kinds of new purchases! And the outlet Las Rozas Village is definitely very important shopping destination. But it is important not to forget about the relevant customs regulations.
