The Outlet Shoppes at Laredo Open with Spring Break Crowdsby Sergio Chapa
Laredo, TX – Ribbon cuttings, sales, prizes and crowds of eager shoppers marked the first day of business for The Outlet Shoppes at Laredo.
City officials and developers were on hand for the outlet mall’s “preview opening” on Thursday morning. Built along the Rio Grande and in the footprint of the old River Drive Mall in downtown Laredo, The Outlet Shoppes at Laredo represent more than 358,000 square feet of mixed-use retail space split between four colorful two-story buildings providing underground parking as well as an indoor and outdoor shopping experience.
Abercrombie & Fitch, Brooks Brothers, Michael Kors, Steve Madden and a two-story Nike store are among the stores that opened on Thursday while plans show that H&M, Old Navy and Banana Republic are expected to open over the next few months.
