CHESTERFIELD, MO (KTVI) - The new St. Louis Premium Outlets is set to open Thursday morning, opening a new flow of money into the Chesterfield Valley.
The mall brought an estimated 800 construction jobs to the area. Unfortunately, those have ended. But now, the 800 retail employees take over. Managers braced for lines of customers who dedicated their morning to shopping. But, some shoppers did not have all day to spend at the mall. So, developers gave the new center a “racetrack design” with all the stores having exterior entrances. Shopper could park near the store they need, jump out, go in, and get going.
St. Louis Premium Outlets was set to open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday through Sunday for Grand Opening Weekend.
