Outlets of Little Rock celebrates opening
October 13, 2015
Although devoid of shoppers and merchandise on an early October day, the Outlets of Little Rock was noisy and crowded. Construction workers and store crews worked around each other as the last touches were added to the buildings. While it might have been difficult to picture then, the Outlets will be ready for the public Friday.
So far, at least 34 stores will be at the Outlets, but not all of them will be ready for opening day.
“It’ll be a really fun atmosphere,” Outlets of Little Rock spokesman Kila Owens says on behalf of Melissa Boyle, the shopping center’s marketing director. “We tried to give it a market feel throughout.”
The Outlets of Little Rock is intended to be the new shopping destination for people in Little Rock and throughout the state. The only center similar to it within a reasonable drive is the Tanger Outlets in Branson, Missouri.
The opening of the Outlets at Little Rock has been one of the most anticipated openings since Bass Pro Shops arrived in November 2013. It is expected that, like with its outdoors-geared neighbor, thousands of people will descend upon the Outlets through the holiday season.
And like Bass Pro, there will be a celebrity guest appearance.
