Outlet Mall Mania
St. Louis bargain-hunters have long wished for better outlet mall options in the area. Now their dreams are finally answered—twofold. This month, two outlet malls open in Chesterfield with top-notch retailers, unique amenities, rewards programs and plenty of bang for the savvy shopper’s buck.
Taubman Prestige Outlets is the first to open its doors on Aug. 2, during Missouri’s tax-free back-toschool weekend. Located on northbound Interstate 64 at Boone’s Crossing, the open-air, village-style layout is the home of around 70 high-quality retailers like J. Crew, Ralph Lauren, Gap, Furla, Steve Madden and Restoration Hardware. The family-friendly shopping center is expected to draw visitors from the metro area and beyond, with its exciting lineup of seasonal events, live music on weekends, a Passport to Savings program of special offers for out-of-town guests and more. 17017 N. Outer 40 Road, Chesterfield, taubmanprestigeoutlets.com.
On the other side of I-64, St. Louis Premium Outlets hosts its grand opening Aug. 22-25. It’s home to 90 retailers, including Ann Taylor, Coach, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Nike, Elie Tahari and Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th. Shoppers will enjoy savings of 25-65 percent every day and can take advantage of a VIP Shopper Club. 18521 Outlet Blvd., Chesterfield, premiumoutlets.com/stlouis.
