The shopping public will get its first glimpse of the new Tanger Outlet Center 1 in greater Bluffton this morning.
The center and 32 of its 40-plus shops and restaurants -- will open at 10 a.m. after a year-long, $50 million redevelopment on Fording Island Road.
Tanger officials say more than 30 including adidas, Kenneth Cole, Under Armour, DKNY Donna Karan New York, and Vince Camuto are new to the local market.
The center, which held an exclusive event for ticketholders Wednesday night, will host a ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. today. Tanger Factory Outlet Centers president and CEO Steven Tanger and S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley will be joined by local officials and co-hosts Jenifer Andrews of TV station WJCL and Derek Hough of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."
Additional parking will be available near the center, and the company will provide shuttle service from Tanger Outlet Center 2.
