London Designer Outlet recorded its strongest year of trading ever in 2023, with a Boxing Day sales surge capping off total annual sales of £99m. 

The capital’s leading fashion and lifestyle outlet recorded its best Christmas week since its opening in 2013, including a Boxing Day bonanza that saw the outlet mark its strongest trading day to date, chalking up £866k. 

Across December, the LDO welcomed a surge of visitors as recent additions such as Boss and Timberland, boosted footfall by 11% year-on-year. This rise in festive bargain-hunters lifted the outlet’s total sales in December to a record-breaking £11.2m.  

As a result, fourteen of the brands that call the LDO home achieved recording breaking Boxing Day sales, including Calvin Klein, Moss and Levis, with store upsizes and upgrades driving year-on-year sales increases for The North Face (34%) and Tommy Hilfiger (30%).
