It’s been a busy news week for the upcoming premium outlet mall in Marana. Seventeen stores names were announced, with more to come, and Oct. 1 was revealed as the opening date. Doing the grand opening on a Thursday prepares the mall for what will undoubtedly be a huge first weekend with shoppers coming from across the region and Northern Mexico.
But, first, the more than 80 retailers need to hire hundreds of staff. While some have been advertising on various job sites, the bulk of the tenants will staff up during an Aug. 20 job fair at the Hilton El Conquistador resort. The event lasts from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. More information about the fair and additional tenants for the mall will be announced in the near future.
Simon Property Group, a global leader in retail real estate ownership, management and development, is the premium outlet mall developer. The mall is part of the Marana Center project, which is being developed by Vintage Partners.
