The owner of a new outlet mall in Chesterfield that is under construction said the mall will open nearly three months sooner than previously announced.
Michigan-based Taubman Centers Inc. announced construction of the Taubman Prestige Outlets Chesterfield outlet mall is being accelerated so the opening date, Aug. 2, 2013, is in time for Missouri’s back-to-school sales tax holiday weekend next year, Aug. 2-4.
The first phase of the mall will have 310,000 square feet of space and about 80 stores when it opens, the company said in a statement. An additional 140,000 square feet of space, with between 30 and 40 stores, will open in the spring of 2014, the company said. Stores that that have either signed leases or given space commitments to open stores at the mall include Banana Republic, Gap, Furla, Ed Hardy, Billabong, and Lucky Brand Jeans.
A groundbreaking for the mall, located near the Boone’s Crossing exit at Highway 40, was held on July 25. At the time, company officials said the mall would open in late October 2013.
