Coming on the heels of the opening of the Taubman Prestige Outlets two weeks ago, the St. Louis Premium Outlets is getting set to open on Aug 22. The 350,000-square-foot center is 100 percent leased. And all but five of the center’s 90 stores will be ready to go on opening day.
In comparison, the Taubman center is more than 80 percent leased and has opened about 47 stores with more set to open through next spring. But some analysts have noted that the Taubman project has a superior location.
These two malls are just three miles apart and yet have five outlet stores in common: J. Crew, Brooks Brothers, PacSun, Famous Footwear and the Gap.
