The Bridgend Designer Outlet, also known as McArthurGlen Designer Outlet (and known locally as "The Pines") is a commercial retail park and outlet store development in Bridgend, Wales, United Kingdom. It is owned and operated by McArthurGlen Group.

The development is situated on Junction 36 of the M4 motorway between Cardiff and Swansea. It consists of around ninety different stores which offer discounts off brand and designer labels. An array of goods are available including clothes, toys, books and electrical products.
