MASHANTUCKET, Conn. (WTNH)– Tanger outlets at the Foxwoods Resort Casino is open. 80 stores make up the shopping mecca. Tanger Style Maker, Biana Gurley said, “we have such a variety of stores from home furnishings to luggage to fashions to gifts you really can’t go wrong.”

The outlets are also a boost for the local economy…creating over 900 permanent jobs and bringing in more than 10 million in tax revenue to the state. Vice President of retail development & operations at Foxwoods, Annette DeBois said, “the job creation and the tax revenue is a shot in the arm to our economy and for Connecticut and it is also a service to the community because there has not been great shopping around here until now.” Tanger Outlets is sure to bring visitors from all over. Erin Grenier with Tanger Outlets said, “families who want to come to the casino now there is something for the moms and the kids to do and for the non gambler in the family.”

Memorial Day weekend at Foxwoods will have something for everyone. Friday there’s an attraction you’ll not want to miss. DeBois said, “we have Nik Wallenda doing a death defying stunt, walking 800 feet across from the Rain Maker casino to the Tanger outlets and it is 70 feet above the ground without a harness.”
