There are some dead outlet malls too. In Washington State, while the one in Tukwila is popular, the ones in Burlington, Auburn and Centralia, are...well, not popular.

There is no outlet mall in Tukwila? The Outlet Collection in auburn is doing really well it's like 98 percent full. Not to mention it's the biggest in state and adding new stores all the time since it opened last year. There is currently adidias , Charlotte ruse, and dash under construction.

Also how is the outlet mall in Centralia not doing well when it's fully leased ?

In IL one opened last year. It was on a toll road exit. For the first few days the mall paid all tolls on the ramp, even if they didn't shop there.

The whole Urban sprwal thing is overhyped. The burbs were created during white flight. And still, today are valued by those whom want bigger lots, and more sqft'g. To each their own. I was born and raised in the inner city, where people lived on top of each other. So, if someone who grew up like I did decides to move to the burbs for more elbow room, I totally understand. The same can be said for people who grew up in the suburbs. As far as urban malls and outlet malls, I think they both have their value in the setting in which they are employed. People will travel to both. Here in NYC, the attitude is against the "mall" structure. Yet Woodbury Commons in Jersey is packed full of city dwellers, and is an outlet mall. Also the mall in Paramus, NJ.

I will end on this, because my reply to this comment can go in a few directions, if the fact that people wanting, I repeat wanting to drive outside of the urban core to shop at outlet malls is a bad thing then the argument is weak at best. The bigger question is do Outlet malls devalue the brands or shopping in aggregate. And I think we all know the answer to that.....

Besides Tax Revenues, the effect can be diminutive. Most of the time, Mom and Pops dont even live in the neighborhood they make money in. So the argument could be made that the only effect they had was a specified Tax contribution and maybe suppliers within the area/city. But if you operate in the inner city then drive to another part of twon, you are taking that revenue elsewhere.

And tax revenues are derived from any retail business. Maybe suppliers is right! Most "Mom and Pop" places sell stuff made in China, Vietnam, Indonesia, etc as well.
