More Stores Planned for Downtown Outlet Mall

The Las Vegas Premium Outlets-North says it is expanding. It plans to add 35 new stores over the next three years.

"We have been here a long time and there is a constant demand from both customers and merchants alike," Alexandra Goranson with the Las Vegas Premium Outlets-North said. "Certainly, we would not make moves like this without good feelings and good demands."

The center mostly caters to tourists. However, with more businesses and people moving downtown, locals are also shopping there.

"Downtown Las Vegas is the place and everyone is starting to feel that." Goranson said.

Las Vegan Elaine Panter says there are more things to do downtown, from the Smith Center to bars and restaurants on Fremont Street. She is spending more time in the area and says having more places to shop will be a plus.
