Three more outlet stores coming soon!



Suffering from the Tuesday blahs? Here's a little outlet mall update to help get you through the day (and to jumpstart your weekend planning!).Charlotterusse_4

The Ellenton outlet mall is adding new retailers -- again. Columbia Sportswear is slated to open a store there this Friday, with the promise of discounts and bounce back coupons to make an opening weekend splash. The 8,899-square-foot store is next to the Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store.

Also, by summer's end, outlet addicts can add Charlotte Russe to their shopping tour. For the uninitiated, Charlotte Russe is a good spot for low-cost (read: cheap) trendy clothes and accessories. I'm curious to see how low the discounts go at the 6,543-square-foot space by the Bass store down in Ellenton.

And, this is kinda random, but if you need to get your Goofy on, a late summer opening is planned for the Disney Character Outlet. (I'm told this is more warehouse style than a Disney Store.)

With kate spade and Lucky Brand Jeans already added to Prime Outlets' roster this year, the reasons to make a trip south keep getting longer.
