The press was given a preview of the new CC Galeón Outlet centre this morning ahead of the public opening at 10am on Saturday, 16 July. Located in the heart of El Galeón, in Adeje, the new centre will have 25 shops, a large Hiperdino and 465 parking places. Also present at the preview were Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, Grupo Nº1 and Archigestión president Amid Achí Fadul, and Olivia Llorca, Marketing and Communications director for the Hiperdino group.
Amid Achí Fadul said that “here in Adeje we find it easy to pursue investment and growth opportunities, which become jobs. In this commercial centre we have created 300 direct jobs, which, added to the 600 in Siam Mall, is 900 new jobs in one year, and we hope to continue to grow”. He added that the local government in Adeje were always well disposed to facilitate new business opportunities in the borough, as the local business community knows, and worked legally and efficiently to make investments and socially beneficial solutions possible.
Mayor Fraga said that he was delighted that this new kind of Outlet centre was to be opened in Adeje, the first of its kind in Tenerife. “With this new commercial venture we continue our commitment to employment creation”, he said. “We acknowledge that the business sector needs to take risks with investments but Adeje is a pioneering borough and has one of the lowest unemployment levels in Spain. Our work as borough representatives is to continue to develop initiatives that can guarantee people a quality of life with stability, personal growth, employment and peaceful conviviality”.
