Fashion outlet stays open until midnight

IKEA’s Designer Outlet Algarve in Loulé will be staying open until midnight on Friday, March 30 in what will be the first “Late Night Shopping” initiative.

Inspired by “international fashion events”, the initiative will also include a varied programme of entertainment.

Shoppers will be able to enjoy discounts of up to 80% while also having the chance to take part in yoga and fitness classes and watch musical and dance performances.

Fado singer Gisela João will be headlining the list of performers, with her show starting at 10pm. Tickets are free but must be picked up from the outlet’s information desk starting March 28.

The event also aims to showcase some of the outlet’s latest stores, such as Sacoor, Geox, Timberland and Calvin Klein.

“Late Night Shopping is a totally different event, whose goal is to provide our visitors with unique moments of fashion, music and entertainment,” said Designer Outlet Algarve’s general manager Miguel Guerreiro.
