Massive new Winnipeg outlet mall to hold grand opening in May

It could soon be that much harder for bargain-hunting Winnipeggers to justify those shopping trips south of the border.

It could soon be that much harder for bargain-hunting Winnipeggers to justify those shopping trips south of the border.

Outlet Collection Winnipeg will feature 100 retailers and is expected to open at the corner of Kenaston Boulevard and Sterling Lyon Parkway this spring.

On Wednesday, a list of 45 of the tenants, some of them newcomers to the Winnipeg market, was released. They include Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW), Under Armour, Banana Republic Factory Store, Samsonite Outlet and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH.

Management says by the time the project is completed, more than 1,300 full- and part-time jobs and 400 construction positions will have been created. A job fair is being held at the Delta Hotel, located at 350 St. Mary Ave., from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 25 and 26.

"We are very excited to provide our tenants with the opportunity to meet with potential candidates as hundreds of positions are filled," Dimitrios Cotsianis, the general manager for Outlet Collection Winnipeg, said in a statement.

Developers broke ground at the former Tuxedo Yards site in 2015. The grand opening of the 400,000-square-foot outlet mall will take place May 3.
