The first-of-its-kind shopping destination in Saudi Arabia is due to open early next month…

We may have plenty of shopping centres in Riyadh, but for the first time in Saudi Arabia, shopaholics will soon be able to shop a variety of designer brands at discounted prices, all under one roof and amid a high-end setting.

The new project, known as Riyadh Outlet, will be situated in the Ar Rihab district next to the stunning Antara residential compound and plans to open its doors by October this year.

While the brands setting up shop in Riyadh Outlet have yet to be announced, the outlet is expected to offer apparel, popular sportswear, accessories and footwear collections from the previous season and specialised outlet concept collections.

We’re also hoping to see plenty of fashion brands similar to other outlet villages abroad, which usually include international brands such as Carolina Herrera, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Guess, Polo Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, Tommy Hilfiger, Levi’s, Diesel, Nike, Adidas, and many others, with discounts ranging between 30 and 70 per cent.

Architecturally, the Riyadh Outlet will be a modern spin on traditional Greek architecture, characterised by a blue and off-white colour palette that is reminiscent of many Greek houses.

So, get ready to look out for savings from the array of designer boutiques while wandering paved streets lined with white, collonaded buildings. The complex will also house a plethora of food and beverage outlets to ensure a pleasant atmosphere and an unforgettable shopping experience.

Riyadh Outlet Mall, until Oct 14, daily 3pm to 1am, King Khalid Rd, Ar Rihab, Riyadh 00966.
