LA ROCA VILLAGE THE 10 MUSTS
1. Unbeatable prices and unrivalled brands. All year long, everything is on sale at La Roca Village: exceptional reductions on previous seasons’ merchandise, for the wardrobe and home, can be as much as 60 percent off recommended retail prices. During seasonal sale times, discounts can go beyond these unrivalled savings.

2. The new boutiques. Every year, La Roca Village extends the selection of its boutiques and has recently opened Swarovski; Hackett; Piquadro, the Italian luxury leather brand; Napapijri, the sportswear label; and the French brands Façonnable, and Comptoir des Cotonniers are now present.

3. The luxury of relaxation. Strolling along the landscaped, open-air promenades amid attractive boutiques and excellent restaurants provides a chance to relax, unwind, contemplate – or celebrate- while you acquire an attractively-priced treasure over a restorative café con leche, some tapas or a glass of cava.

4. Saving time. Because saving time is a priority for almost everybody today, efficiency is an integral part of the shopping experience at La Roca Village. Located less than an hour from major city centres, the Village is easy to reach by direct public transport services and is also accessible from major motorways. Ample free parking spaces.

5. A great plan for the weekend. Shopping goes beyond simply acquiring merchandise. Special initiatives and promotions – from beauty makeovers to cooking workshops for children and adults – take place throughout the year. These are entertaining events that cater for the diversity of visitors. Many of these are free of charge, while some cost a nominal price.

6. The personal shopping service. La Roca Village offers its their visitors a personalised service. A personal shopper is on hand to accompany visitors and advise on their shopping. The service is by appointment and 48 hours advance notice is mandatory to secure it; this is money well spent.

7. Support for charitable projects. Upon celebrating its 10th anniversary, La Roca Village donated €60,000 to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in November 2008. Creating Dreams – a special book and open-air photography exhibition – marked the occasion. This tribute to Catalonia featured portraits of a renowned Catalonian personality accompanied by a top Spanish model. Each image was shot on location in Barcelona by a well-known Spanish fashion photographer.

8. The complimentary privileges. Rewards are also often part of the fun, too. Shoppers spending €300 or more are entitled to a free Mercedes taxi service to their hotel in Barcelona; they simply have to present their receipt at the Village reception. Shoppers whose purchases total €400 or more will receive a €10 luncheon voucher. Becoming part of the exclusive VIP Club offers privileges that can maximise savings. Simply complete an official VIP Club form – which is available on line, at every boutique and from the Tourist Information Centre – and on come the perks. While a VIP Club Card provides an extra 10 percent saving on merchandise, VIP Club members are also the first to be informed about Village promotions in the VIP newsletter.

9. The tourist information centre. Here’s a place where the concept of hospitality is taken seriously. The multi-lingual hostesses are always ready with a smile to respond to every need. Should visitors wish to know the latest news about the Village’s brands, book a personal shopper, reserve a taxi, discover the tourist attractions of the region, including the famous regional UNESCO World Heritage Sites, or simply find a hotel room, the staff are on hand to advise.

10. The ultimate shopping experience. Along with the opportunity to shop, a trip to La Roca Village presents a chance to explore the stunning surrounding countryside and the fascinating cities nearby. So a visit to La Roca Village offers affordable retail therapy plus an opportunity to discover the “hidden gems” found northwest along the Costa Brava or Barcelona.
