New Moda shoe store in Pelle opens at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet in Cannock offering free gifts

Women’s footwear brand Moda in Pelle has finally opened its doors at the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet West Midlands. The fashion outlet officially welcomed its first customers to Cannock’s £160million designer store this morning.

It joins sportswear brand Champion and jewelers Chappelle who both opened in the huge shopping complex earlier this year. Latest signature, Moda in Pelle has been designing women’s shoes since its creation in 1975 in Leeds.

It now has over 40 retail stores across the country. To celebrate the opening on Saturday, the store offered customers a free gift for purchases over £75.

There were also additional activities in the new shop. The outlet obtained planning permission in 2016 and finally opened to the public on April 12 last year.

More than 900 jobs were created in the region, while customers tasted 30 tons of Haribo pick and mix products and bought more than 100,000 handbags. Others drank over 400,000 cups of coffee and updated their beauty routine with 888,000 beauty products.

As a dog-friendly centre, the outlet has also welcomed 50,000 dogs since last April and 3,000 trees have been planted. Mike Thomas, center manager at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet West Midlands, previously said there were hopes 12 to 14 more stores would open by mid-2022 before bosses set their sights on expanding the center and the introduction of another 50 stores.

The shopping village is located in Cannock, just off the Eastern Way, a 30 minute drive from Birmingham. Normal opening hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
