Safety prioritized at the opening as customers invited to book personal shopping appointment with Click&Meet
DUSSELDORF, MAY 11 2021 // Zalando is opening a new outlet at Königsallee 76-78 in Dusseldorf, the largest of the 12 Zalando outlets in Germany to date. The new store in Dusseldorf's city centre offers an assortment of designer and brand-name products reduced in price by up to 70% on 2,500 square meters of sales space. In accordance with the official coronavirus regulations, customers can book a personal appointment for their visit online in advance.
The Zalando Outlet on the famous shopping boulevard 'Kö' offers several highlights: On three floors, customers will find around 50,000 products from 2,000 different brands, including items from the 'Designer' category for women, men and, for the first time in a Zalando Outlet, children. In addition, two further new product categories will be introduced: Firstly, there is a separate area for items from the 'Men Business' category, and secondly, an area with items from the 'Home' category, which includes, for example, small items of furniture, towels and decorative items. Previously, these items were available in the Zalando Fashion Store. The high-quality products offered in outlets are, for example, goods from the previous season, single sizes, or items with minor defects such as a missing button. Beauty products in mint condition complement the selection of textiles, accessories and shoes.
As in the other Zalando outlets, Zalando also relies on a modern and pleasant shopping atmosphere in Dusseldorf. The outlet offers wide aisles, free Wi-Fi and a relaxed atmosphere thanks to the design, which makes use of plants. Local features have also been incorporated into the design. One wall is adorned with a large-scale map of the city.
'The Zalando Outlet Dusseldorf is something special in every respect. Located directly on the Kö, it is not only our largest store to date, but also the one with the most extensive assortment. Everyone and anyone can really find something here, and at affordable prices,' says Dorothee Schönfeld, Managing Director of Zalando Outlets. 'With all the joy, safety comes first, of course,' Schönfeld continues. 'We are opening with our appointment booking concept and are eager to hear the feedback from customers from Dusseldorf and the surrounding area.'
The safety of customers and sales staff is a top priority, especially during the opening. In accordance with official regulations, Zalando Outlets currently offer so-called appointment shopping via Click&Meet in conjunction with a negative COVID-19 test. In addition, general hygiene and safety regulations apply, including distance rules, the obligation to wear a mask, and cashless payment where possible.
