BIG NAMES, BIGGER DISCOUNTS
Three amazing outlet malls can be found in every corner of the metro.
The Twin Cities are home to three, truly amazing outlet malls conveniently located north, east and south of the metro.
Start your day full of outlet shopping at the newest member of the Twin Cities outlet scene in the suburb of Eagan. This shopping mecca isn’t called the Twin Cities Premium Outlets for nothing. Home to over 100 stores including Nike, Coach, Polo Ralph Lauren, Armani, Michael Kors, Under Armour and Vera Bradley, the mall’s covered walkways and heated surface parking lots (yes, heated!) offer a comfortable shopping experience but still allow the opportunity to relish in the seasons of Minnesota.
Be sure to grab a bite at the food court and find a seat near the indoor/outdoor fireplace to take in outlet malls Minnesota-style.
