We've got the first round of stores that will open up the Outlets of Des Moines.

The outlet mall is under construction near where Interstate 80 hits Highway 65. It will share the same I-80 off-ramps as Adventureland Amusement Park, Prairie Meadows and Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World. Officials with New England Development officially announced the first 24 tenants of the 300,000 square foot facility.

They are:

“These 24 tenants, many of which are new to Iowa, put us right on pace for where we want to be with more than eight months to go before Grand Opening,” Vice President of New England Development Michael Barelli said in a statement. “This number of signed commitments, along with the numerous discussions underway, are strong indicators of success.   We expect the momentum to continue as more prospective retailers visit Des Moines to see the economic vitality and quality of life they’ve heard so much about.”

The outlet mall is set to open in October. Another round of tenants is expected to be announced this summer.
