Attention area shoppers! Asheville will welcome its first outlet mall on May 1, 2015, when the Asheville Outlets are slated to open.

The 325,000-square-foot shopping center will feature an open-air, pedestrian-only format and will include 75 top manufacturer and retail outlets, plus a food court and other anticipated amenities.

Asheville Outlets is currently under construction on the former site of the Biltmore Square Mall, just off I-26 at exit 33. And although there have been no formal announcements of which stores are signing on, the Asheville Citizen-Times reports that retailers such as Banana Republic, Vera Bradley, Express and Wilsons Leather are already hiring for positions at the new mall.

Stay tuned for the full list of shops, as well as for exciting opening-weekend events and deals.
