Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. announced today that it has finalized the naming of its 13th Mitsui Outlet Park, under development in Oyabe City, Toyoma Prefecture, as Mitsui Outlet Park Hokuriku Oyabe, along with a list of 129 of the mall’s approximately 160 planned store openings. Included in the list are local stores from the Hokuriku area, and seven stores that will open in an outlet mall for the first time. The mall is scheduled to begin operating in mid-July 2015.

Mitsui Outlet Park Hokuriku Oyabe will be the first full-scale outlet mall in the Hokuriku area, and will reflect the expertise Mitsui Fudosan has nurtured from its 12 existing outlet parks in Japan. To respond to customers’ needs, Mitsui Fudosan is developing a major fashion center bringing together various genres of fashion in one spot, including sophisticated brands from Japan and abroad, famous sporting good brands, and fashion accessories. Apart from outlet stores, a wide variety of restaurants and local produce stores will be opened in the mall for customers to enjoy the local attractions of the Hokuriku area.

Starting tentatively from January 31, 2015, joint recruitment and interviews of job applicants for the stores in the mall will be conducted in stages.

The decision to open the Hokuriku Shinkansen Line on March 14, 2015 is expected to drive an increase in inbound tourists to the Hokuriku area, not only from elsewhere in Japan, but also from overseas, and from Asia in particular. In response to the tourists from abroad, Mitsui Outlet Park Hokuriku Oyabe plans to house a foreign currency exchange machine in addition to the amenity features such as prayer rooms, free WiFi spots, and multilingual guidance implemented in other Mitsui Outlet Parks. The new mall will also develop measures for visiting customers to encounter and browse through tourist attractions of the Hokuriku area by collaborating with the numerous local tourist destinations and opening local produce stores and a tourist information booth.

The mall will be located beside National Route 8, 3 km from the Fukuoka interchange of Noetsu Expressway and approximately 8 km from the Oyabe interchange of Hokuriku Expressway, giving it outstanding access by road not only from Toyama Prefecture but also across a broad area encompassing the entire Hokuriku area.

The planned facility will be a two-story, enclosed mall, taking into account the Hokuriku area climate, on a site of approximately 130,000 m2 with gloss floor space of approximately 45,000 m2 and a combined floor area of stores of approximately 26,000 m2. Under a construction concept of an overlapping and interlocking space, the mall will utilize its location in scenic Toyama Prefecture to blend the prefecture’s natural and cultural surroundings with a sophisticated shopping environment. Plans also call for approximately 2,800 parking spaces.
