Work crews are putting the final touches on the Tanger Outlets Center at Westgate in Glendale just in time for the grand opening next month.

“We’re very excited to open and be a destination shopping place as well as put people back to work at the same time,” said Jessica Reeves, general manager of Tanger Outlets. “It’s right on schedule and where we need to be at this point.”

Reeves addressed business owners and local leaders Thursday during the Glendale Convention Bureau and Visitors Center luncheon at the Surprise Hampton Inn.

The Tanger Outlets Center is scheduled to open Nov. 15.

Last month, Tanger had a job fair to fill 900 positions at the outlet center and more than 7,500 people attended the event.

“Almost all of the positions have been hired with exception of a few, but some of the managers will also hire throughout the year, too,” Reeves said.

More than 5 million people are expected to visit in the first year of business.

“Many shoppers travel as far as 60 miles to outlets, so we’re expecting not just West Valley residents but people from beyond this area to come here,” she said.

In addition, Reeves added, Tanger will help generate sales tax revenue for the city of Glendale.

The outlet mall broke ground next to Westgate City Center in March, and the 328,000-square-foot outlet center will feature 85 brand-name stores.

Tanger officials said the store should generate $7.5 million annually in state sales-tax revenue and $2.6 million annually in city sales taxes.

Tanger has 39 shopping centers in 25 states and Canada.

The Glendale location will include Nike, Banana Republic, Guess, J. Crew and Brooks Brothers.

The luncheon, sponsored by the Glendale CVB, was hosted by the city of Surprise.

Mark Coronado, director of recreation services for Surprise, said he was happy to have the CVB and Reeves in the city for the business lunch meeting.

“It’s important for us to recognize that tourism is a regional thing,” said Coronado. “It’s important we all reach out and help one another.”

Should Arizona lower the age when teens can obtain driving permits?

Arizona House Bill 2080 would allow teenagers as young as 15 to obtain a driving permit, only letting them drive with a licensed operator who is 21 years or older. The current driving permit age limit is 15 years, 6 months. Is this change a good idea?
