Tanger Outlets to Open Grand Rapids Location in July
Tanger Outlets has announced the opening of its new location in West Michigan.
According to its website, the new outlet center will have its grand opening in July 2015. An exact date hasn’t been announced.
Developers broke ground on the project at U.S. 131 and 84th street in Byron Township in August 2014.
Originally, it was expected that the outlet center wouldn't open until this fall, but that grand opening date has been moved up.
Currently, Tanger has two other locations in Michigan -- Howell and West Branch.
The Grand Rapids location will be home to more than 75 stores including Banana Republic and Calvin Klein. The retail center is expected to bring about 900 jobs to West Michigan.
Currently, the nearest Tanger Outlets location in Howell sees about two million shoppers per year.
The new location in West Michigan is expected to see double that, officials said.
