BUSAN, South Korea, Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Shinsegae Simon, a joint-venture between Shinsegae Group and Simon Property Group, Inc. (NYSE: SPG), announced today that it has opened Busan Premium Outlets, its third Premium Outlet Center in South Korea. 

Building on the success of the Yeoju and Paju Premium Outlets near Seoul, Busan Premium Outlets is located on the southeastern tip of the Korean Peninsula and features 180 outlet stores offering every day savings of 25% to 65%, with a distinctive architectural design inspired by the Tuscany region of Italy.

The center's designer and name brand stores feature a mix of high-end fashion brands including Coach, Ermenegildo Zegna, Isabel Marant, Jill Stuart, Marc Jacobs, Roberto Cavalli and Vivienne Westwood as well as many casual lifestyle, sportswear and home fashion brands including Adidas, Calvin Klein, Coleman, DKNY, Lacoste, Le Creuset, Puma Golf, The North Face and Theory.  Shopper amenities include a food court with a beautiful view of the entire center and a safari-themed play area.

"We are pleased to bring another Premium Outlet Center to the Korean Peninsula.  Busan Premium Outlets will uniquely serve area residents and visitors, offering high-quality brands at great savings in an upscale environment," said John R. Klein, President of Simon's Premium Outlets division. "This project also created hundreds of new jobs and brings significant economic development to the area."

Busan Premium Outlets has 343,000 square feet of retail space, and the total investment for the project was US$148 million.

The center is located 21km north of downtown Busan, the second largest city in Korea, and is easily accessible via the Jangan IC and Busan-Ulsan Expressway. Busan Premium Outlets is just a 30 minute drive from Haeundae Beach Resort, the largest beach resort in Korea, which welcomes 20 million visitors annually.

To celebrate its much anticipated opening, Busan Premium Outlets will host an extended "Grand Opening Celebration" from August 29 to September 19. Nearly 100 stores will participate in the event during which customers will enjoy extra savings, in-store promotions, musical performances and a lucky draw event featuring prizes including a BMW Mini [Cooper], designer handbags and shopping sprees.
