If you haven’t already heard (which means you also haven’t been reading our Twitter tisk tisk), I’m happy to be the one to announce that Ottawa will be getting 350,000 sq. ft. of outlet bliss near Kanata by 2014. Tanger Outlets (the second largest outlet retailers in the U.S.) will be expanding to the Canadian market with their first site near Scotiabank place.
If you are unfamiliar with the Tanger name, the outlet centres boast some of the most popular brand names including: Coach, BCBG, Banana Republic, Nine West, J-Crew and Calvin Klein. They have yet to announce which stores will be included in the Ottawa location but I’d put money on Coach, Banana Republic and BCBG as they seem to be staples at all U.S. sites and have a popular following here as well.
So be patient little fashionistas, Ottawa is moving up!
Your anxiously-awaiting outlet fairy,
