Considering the limited range of retailers available here, the outlet is not difficult to navigate. Unfortunately, you need to get there early as the retailers generally close at 5 pm.

Plenty of free parking. All shops are under cover with plenty of restaurants to keep up energy levels! All shops offer a wide range of discounts on their products. Stores - clothing: women, men, children; fitness, shoes, jewellery, kitchenware, bedding and bathroom, books
