Most of the stores moving into the 97,980-square-foot Phase III building will open before the April 14 grand opening ceremony, Marketing Director Alice Rosen said.
A separate 66,169-square-foot building housing the Home Co. has been designated Phase IIIA.
With the opening of Phase III, the number of stores at Prime Outlets, off Sharpsburg Pike, will increase from 86 to at least 106.
The outlet mall, which owners project will draw an estimated 3 million people a year, has 86 stores in Phases I and II, Rosen said. In addition to the 20 stores confirmed for Phase III, one or two more stores, which she would not identify, are expected to commit later, Rosen said.
