The over $125 million project is already having a positive economic impact on the area through the creation of more than 400 jobs during the construction phase. Once complete, Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods Resort Casino will create an estimated $10.4 million in annual sales tax. Construction on the new 300,000-square-foot Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods Resort Casino began in September 2013.
Guests will be able to enter Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods Resort Casino from two indoor entrances including one from the Grand Pequot Hotel and the other from the Fox Tower.

“We’re looking forward to an exciting 2015 with the opening of our new Tanger Outlets,” said Felix Rappaport, President and CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino. “This will continue our efforts to create a more robust experience for our guests and position the property as the preeminent retail and gaming destination in the Northeast. The economic impact will be widespread as we bring new jobs to southeastern Connecticut and create new employment opportunities for all of Connecticut and neighboring Rhode Island residents.”
