A first-to-market concept to revolutionize the retail industry & support local communities
TORONTO, April 10, 2017 /CNW/ - Dixie Outlet Mall (Toronto's discount destination and home to over 120 brand name outlets) announces the launch of The Dixie Living Room: a zero-cost, multi-purpose community space available to book for corporate meetings, events, pop-up shops and more. Open during regular operating hours, The Dixie Living Room is a first-to-market concept offering a comfortable and accommodating space that is 100% FREE to use.
"Transforming a vacant unit into a beautiful community space is just one of the ways we are working to reinvent the retail experience," says Cristina Avila, Dixie Outlet Mall's Marketing Director. "By sharing our resources, we hope to inspire our friends and neighbours to welcome more diverse uses into our shopping centre for our guests to enjoy."
The Dixie Living Room is a 3,100-square foot, bright, open space with store front windows. The minimalist industrial décor lends itself to a wide range of functions. Available for short-term rentals or multi-day use, The Dixie Living Room comes equipped with free Wi-Fi, tables, chairs and light-weight movable wall dividers to transform the space to suit various uses. Considering a multitude of event types, the Living Room's capacity can accommodate up to 100 standing guests within the space.
"We are a proud, supportive member of our community," says Jerry Pollard, Dixie Outlet Mall's General Manager, "And we are excited to offer a well-equipped and welcoming transitional space to those who may not otherwise have access to such a venue."
