Crowds are a given, as shoppers from Oklahoma and beyond get their first look at the new, 348,000-square-foot outlet center at Interstate 40 and Council Road.
The sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, Aug. 5, and continues through midnight Sunday, Aug. 7. During that time, clothing and shoes priced under $100 will be tax-free.
The outlet mall will have extended hours during its opening weekend beginning at 8 a.m. Aug. 5.
Gina Slechta, vice president of marketing for Horizon Group Properties, said the mall was already pushing for an August opening date, and combining it with the tax-free weekend was ideal.
“We wanted to be open for this. We are trying very hard to attract customers from Texas, Kansas and Arkansas,” she said.
The mall will host entertainment throughout the weekend, including appearances from Captain America and Spider-Man. Retailers will run their own promotions, and many are planning giveaways for the first 100 customers, Slechta said.
