From the official press release:
Australia’s leading premium outlet destination has been unveiled to the Western Australian (WA) community today as the new DFO Perth officially opened its doors for the first time.
The new $150 million joint venture between Vicinity Centres (Vicinity) and Perth Airport, constructed over 15 months, will bring an unrivalled outlet shopping experience to WA.
The new centre was opened this morning by John Carey MLA, Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier, Perth Airport Chairman, Nev Power and Vicinity Centres Executive General Manager Development, Carolyn Viney who welcomed new customers, retailers and the Perth community.
Located in the Perth Airport precinct and stretching across approximately 33,000 sqm (24,000 GLA), DFO Perth features 113 international and Australian brands, a casual dining precinct, a children’s playground, and 1,500 car park spaces including two electric vehicle charging bays.
Ms Viney said the newly-built DFO Perth represented an exciting step for the DFO brand in Australia and another significant chapter in Vicinity’s long-term investment in the WA economy.
“We’re thrilled to be launching a brand new centre and the sixth DFO in our national portfolio today, in partnership with Perth Airport,” Ms Viney said.
“Outlet shopping is the fastest growing sector in the industry and, with sales up more than five per cent over the past year, the time was right to bring the DFO brand to Western Australia.
“With more than 17 million people across the country visiting a DFO centre every year, we expect DFO Perth will be warmly welcomed by Western Australians as well as visitors to this great state.
“We know the people of Perth have been eagerly anticipating the opening of this centre. We are delighted to have created a place where they, and the more than two million international and domestic visitors who visit Western Australia every year, can experience premium outlet shopping,” Ms Viney said.
