I'm more curious about how the giant mall in Tsawwassen Mills will do....its suppose to be larger than Metropolis with a bunch of large anchors and smaller retailers. More accessible price range wise for the average working class as compared to his outlet in YVR.
There's a ton of development in the area and with the new Hwy 17, it should be pretty accessible to people coming from all over.

That said, Morgan Crossing is closer for folks on the WR wide of Boundary Bay. If anything it'll serve the ferry traffic, but with fares the way they are I'm not sure how well the mall will be served

Having been to CrossIron Mills (a mall that it's supposedly modeled after), I don't see why people in Vancouver and the immediate adjacent suburbs would go aside from "checking it out". I personally don't hunt/fish so the Big Bass is no use to me lol

I'm betting "must speak fluent Cantonese and Mandarin" is a requirement for prospective sales reps at those stores.

If the Massey Tunnel replacement bridge is tolled, this place is not going to get any traffic coming in from Richmond at all. The population from Tsawwassen, Ladner, and Delta alone is too small to support something that large.

I think a significant portion of the customer base for this mall will be traveler, from Mainland china, and other foreign developing countries where there is a lot of new money.
There will be a lot of advertisement in the airport for these people to come shop at this outlet between connections.
It wouldn't shock me if a large portion of the stores at this mall offer duty free shopping for people with valid international boarding pass. (ie. they will deliver the goods you purchase to the boarding gate before you departure)

Not that I'd be one of their prospective customers, partially because I think most of all of their stuff looks tacky, and partially because I can't afford more than a couple things at these stores... but it just seems weird that high end companies like these have outlet stores. Maybe it's just me, though...

I hope it fails miserably. They bulldozed the racetrack in order to bring this, so I'm all for anything that helps bankrupt the new mall owners.

I frequent the premium outlet in Chicago, and they have georgio Armani and ferragamo among a few other higher end retailers,and they do quite well.... And I've personally scored some great deals at these stores.

As for the Richmond outlet... Even the rich fobs likes getting deals

I guess I just assumed that initially, cause the sky in the concept render looks fake.
I was thinking it looks exactly like the forum shops at caesars lol.

Traffic is going to be bad in that area. There is only 1 lane going in from Templeton Station Road and also through the back of the Outlet on Grauer Road.

It's a Canadian retail establishment. What do you expect?

Even Birch Bay Outlets is a bit of a rip off these days.

me and the wife when, traffic is standard for a soft opening, we didn't not see any good deals for now... But the place reminded me of Vegas for some reason. Looks nice.

This will be a win win situation for me and the woman as she hates boating and I hate shopping. But it's a one stop shop for both of us!!!
