Neiman Marcus' Last Call became the first anchor announced for the Prime Outlets-Grand Prairie shopping center at the northeast corner of Interstate 20 and Texas 360.
Last Call, which sells clearance and other merchandise, announced Monday it would open a 28,000-square-foot store in the shopping center.
Construction on the center, expected to be similiar to Prime Retail's popular San Marcos outlet center on Interstate 35, is expected to begin this fall. Grand opening is expected in time for the 2009 holidays.
"Prime Outlets’ shoppers not only desire great style, but leading designer and brand-name fashions,"said Karen Fluharty, senior vice president of marketing for Prime. "We are delighted to welcome Neiman Marcus Last Call as a key retailer in our line-up of designer names."
The mall is expected to be 485,000 square foot in size.
"Prime Outlets–Grand Prairie is well-positioned to become one of the region’s most popular shopping destinations for local consumers and the region’s growing tourist base," said Gayle Tremblay, vice president, clearance division, Neiman Marcus. "We are very happy to sign on with Prime Retail and become part of its Grand Prairie team of merchants."
The outlet center will be south of Arlington's tourist complex, including the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, new Cowboys stadium under construction, and the planned GloryPark retail and entertainment development.
