Malaysia’s second Premium Outlets mall is expected to open by the second quarter of this year in Genting Highlands.
Genting Highlands Premium Outlets is a 50:50 JV between Genting Plantations and Premium Outlets, the outlet division of Simon Property Group. Genting Simon opened Johor Premium Outlets in 2011, the first outlet for the brand in Southeast Asia.
Genting Highlands Premium Outlets will have 150 designer and brand-name stores – more than the Johor outlet – offering savings of 25 to 65 per cent.
Leasing company Genting Simon COO Jean Marie Pin Harry says the new centre is a key component of the Genting Integrated Tourism Plan. Genting Highlands attracts about 20 million visitors annually, and the outlets will complement the offerings of Resorts World Genting.
Genting Highlands Premium Outlets’ brand partners include Adidas, Aigner, Beauty Scents, Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein Jeans, Charles & Keith, Coach, Furla, Gap, Guess, Hugo Boss, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Oroton, Pedro, Polo Ralph Lauren, Puma, Samsonite, Superdry, Swatch, Time Lab and Wacoal.
