Top 10 Factory Outlet Centers in Europe

Outlet Centers (FOCs) are agglomerations of several outlet store units within a mutually-planned or a spatially interrelated complex of buildings with more than 5,000 m² sales area (= approx. 6,000 m² GLA) or with more than 20 outlet stores. Through FOCs, manufacturers and vertically-integrated retailers sell past seasons, factory seconds, surplus stock etc. directly to the consumer, without using retail businesses as distributive channels. All goods are sold at a discount of at least 25%, whereas dual pricing (‘High-Street Price’/‘Outlet Price’) is prescribed in the leasing contract. The coordination, organization and marketing is carried out by central management.
