NORFOLK, Va. - Norfolk Premium Outlets is just weeks away from opening.
Thursday morning News 3 got an inside tour of the new facility.
“There’s some beautiful landscaping inside here. There will be a lot of seating areas as well. A lot of process on the store fronts, a lot of construction," Scott Richardson, the Vice President of Development, said.
The center will house "an ever-changing and evolving mix of apparel, footwear, fashion accessories, leather goods, home furnishings and specialty brands with enormous savings of 25 to 65 percent every day."
About 50 stores will open their doors during the June 29th grand opening including Old Navy, Michael Kors, Armani Exchange, and The North Face.
Located on Northampton Boulevard at the Norfolk and Virginia Beach border, the site will will feature 80 to 90 stores in all.
The increase in traffic has some nearby homeowners concerned.
“Life is not gonna be as we know it now," Helen Elliot said. "I’m just dreading to see it come.”
Management tells News 3 they're aware of the issue and have addressed the problem.
