Outlets still draw
Did local retailers' early openings on
Turkey Day gobble up holiday sales at outlet
centers? Not so much.
More than 35 tenants opened new doors
in the 175,000-sf expansion of Macerich's
Fashion Outlets project.Topping off its fourth year, the Tanger-
RioCan REIT joint venture opens its first
phase 1 project.
The 150,000-sf expansion nearly doubles
the size of the 20-year-old center and
brings in more than 30 new tenants.
