The Phoenix Premium Outlets opened in early April, providing hundreds of new jobs to the Chandler area and an economic boost along with it.
The new mall, located adjacent to the Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino, opened with 90 stores including Banana Republic, Calvin Klein, Coach, Michael Kors and many more, with more expected to open in the coming months.
The partnership between the Gila River Indian Community and Premium Outlets is ideal as it adds a major shopping component to the already in place entertainment and restaurant options at Wild Horse Pass.
The outlets are expected to bring 800 permanent jobs to the area and generate more than $150 million annually in retail sales. That translates to approximately $13 million in tax revenue.
