This Autumn, Gretna Gateway Outlet Village continues its significant revitalisation plans, transforming the destination into Scotland’s premier designer village.
Situated on the Scottish border in Dumfries & Galloway, the outlet village is currently home to world class anchor brands including Polo Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss, Molton Brown and Nike, and welcomes around 2.5 million local and regional shoppers every year.
Due for completion in Autumn 2020, the rejuvenated destination will bring a whole new look and feel, with a blend of heritage and contemporary Scottish architecture, and new landscaping which will reflect the lush natural surroundings. The structures will be refreshed with timber-clad storefronts, recycled stone paving, and locally-sourced granite. The revitalisation coincides with the outlet village re-branding to the name Caledonia Park.
In line with the refresh, a new wave of brands are set to join the mix, including Adidas, Reebok, Levi’s, Gap and The Cosmetics Company Store (Estée Lauder), further elevating the destination’s line-up of designer fashion and high street favourites. The enhanced retail offering will be complemented by an oasis of world-class food and drink in the Dining Quarter, with a focus on local produce.
Dog-friendly shopping is also high on the agenda, with designated dog bowls, a neighbouring dog walk, and the vast majority of retailers allowing dogs through their doors.
The village has recently enjoyed a successful and diverse Summer events calendar, offering florist workshop events, outdoor cinemas, kids crafting, live music and interactive exhibitions from Glasgow Science Centre.
Just off the M74, Scotland’s premier designer village places emphases on experience, making it the ideal retail destination for a day’s shopping, a family day out, or a call-in from your journey over the border.
