Twin Cities Premium Outlets Baits More Winnipeggers Down South

With the opening of H&M, Target, Urban Outfitters, and many other US-based chains, Winnipeggers are finding less reasons to shop down south.

Black Friday, the BIGGEST shopping day in the USA, is just around the corner. Normally flocks of Winnipeggers would hit the Emerson crossing to get their hands on the best deals. But over the last couple years, retailers have started offering Black Friday sales here in Canada. Polo Park, Winnipeg’s largest mall, ran a very successful mall-wide Black Friday promotion last year – and you can guarantee they’ll have a similar offering later this month.

Canadian Dollars are staying in Canada – which is a good thing.

The Simon Property Group, which owns and operates they very popular Albertville Premium Outlets, hopes to shake things up.

In August, they held the grand opening of Twin Cities Premium Outlets. The mall has about 100 stores which you wont find at other nearby outlets across Minnesota.

The anchor of the mall is the massive 27,060 square-foot Saks OFF 5th store. You’ll be able to find brands like Max Mara, Armani, Joie, Alice + Olivia, Hugo Boss, Vince, Bavana and Stuart Weitzman.

Other stores include: J. Crew, Armani, 7 for all Mankind, Nike, Oakley, Eddie Bauer, Adidas, Fossil, Vera Bradley and Calphalon Kitchen.
