Speaking on behalf of AEG and Crosstree, Marion Dillon, leasing director for Icon Outlet, said: “Icon Outlet had already established itself as a standalone retail destination offering something different in the capital, but that position is even stronger now as Londoners and visitors from the South East adjust to shopping in the new reality. Icon Outlet’s great value premium brands and its unique experience are proving to be an enduring combination.
“We have created a successful retail community in which operators thrive due to the appeal of Icon Outlet and its position as a key part of The O2, the world’s number one events and entertainment venue.”
