The Costa Mijas shopping centre in El Corte Inglés will reopen this Thursday (29 July) as an 'outlet' retail space for luxury brands.
The new area will occupy 7,000 square metres on the ground floor of the building in the Las Lagunas area and feature some 160 fashion and accessories brands with discounts of up to 70 per cent.
Along with this new discount area, existing businesses will continue to operate in the building, including the Hipercor supermarket and the other operators including the Lorena Café and Salvador coffee shops, a hairdresser, optician, travel agency and a Post Office. In addition, there is a new perfume store area and another that specialises in technology devices, television and computers.
Around 270 employees will work in the new commercial area. The rest of the staff who previously worked in Mijas, and who have not joined the ERTE furlough scheme, have been transferred to other company stores in the region.
Some of the upper floors of the building have passed into the hands of El Corte Inglés Real Estate, which will be in charge of finding new tenants.
