At a Glance…
The only factory outlet shopping in Manchester, the Lowry Outlet Mall has over 80 stores including big-name retailers like Marks & Spencer, Molton Brown, Whittard of Chelsea, Nike, Whistles and Gap. The predominantly regional PR campaign supports every aspect of the Outlet, from new store openings to events and activities on site.
A few highlights…
We were proud to support the work of Francis House, Manchester’s Children’s Hospice. The Lowry Outlet Mall’s Christmas campaign supported the hospice’s Festival of Trees campaign. The activity, now in its fourth year, sees local and national companies and organisations donating a tree to the charity for shoppers to bid on. In all, the Lowry Outlet Mall helped to raise more than £25,000 for Francis House Children’s Hospice over the Christmas period, news we were proud to publicise.
What the press say…
