If you’ve visited Las Vegas this year you may have noticed construction at Wynn. Well, the exterior construction is complete and we’ll soon see a new shopping destination on the Vegas Strip. The new 70,000-square-foot Wynn Plaza should opening to the public in October.
“Wynn Plaza is a dynamic new addition to Las Vegas’ vibrant retail scene, offering many brands that haven’t been available in Las Vegas until now,” said Maurice Wooden, President of Wynn Las Vegas. “With dozens of fashion, dining, and lifestyle options that are exclusively found at Wynn Plaza, we’re giving visitors experiences that are truly one-of-a-kind.”
As you’d expect from the luxury resort, Wynn Plaza will feature a number of high-end retail outlets. The latest exclusive retail outlets include Cipriani, Urth Caffé, SoulCycle, Céline, Balmain, Loewe, James Perse, Cotton Citizen, Marie France Van Damme, and Vitra Eyewear. The new mall at Wynn will also include boutiques include Stella McCartney, Kiton, Omega, RIMOWA, Breitling, and Le Labo. More shops to be announced in the coming months.
“Consumers today define luxury in a different way than in the past,” commented Haim and Stanley H. Chera, joint venture partners with Wynn in its Las Vegas retail. “The customer is looking for an experience that is not only unique to market, but unique globally, and one that addresses their lifestyle needs. This collection of boutiques provides for a casual, contemporary, luxury mix that exists nowhere else in North America.”
This new group of retailers joins the recently opened boutiques of Bottega Veneta, Saint Laurent, and the only permanent Louis Vuitton Men’s store in the country. Wynn Plaza will complement the existing luxury retail collection currently at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore which includes Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Hermes, Cartier, Givenchy, Prada, Rolex, Loro Piana, Moncler, Brunello Cucinelli, Christian Louboutin, Alexander McQueen, Watches of Switzerland, and many more.
Shopping On The Vegas Strip
According to the most recent Las Vegas Visitor Profile from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, the average person visiting Las Vegas spent $143.13 per trip shopping in 2017. Ironically, the people who are shopping are spending less. When the same report removes the people who didn’t shop, the average shopper spent $193.68 per visit in 2017. That’s the lowest in five years.
That information isn’t stopping Wynn from adding high-end retail. While Wynn Plaza is aiming at the luxury shoppers, there are plenty of other places to shop on the Vegas Strip.
- Crystals (City Center/Aria) – Mostly high-end retail and dining.
- Fashion Show Mall (Across from Wynn) – Traditional mall with a lot of restaurants.
- Forum Shops (Caesars Palace) – This huge mall has something for everyone, including good happy hour deals.
- Grand Canal Shoppes (Above and between The Venetian and Palazzo) – Wide variety of shopping and dining. The food court offers some of the least expensive dining options between the two hotels.
- Grand Bazaar Shops (Bally’s) – Variety of small shops and restaurants in front of the casino.
- The Linq – The shopping promenade is in between The Linq casino and Flamingo and leads to the High Roller Observation Wheel. Soon you’ll be able to zipline above the crowd.
- Mandalay Place (Between Mandalay Bay and Luxor) – A small selection of restaurants, bars, and stores.
- Miracle Mile Shops (Planet Hollywood) – Beyond the shopping, this mall has plenty of affordable dining options.
