Bloomingdale’s officials have confirmed that they’re scouting across Florida for locations for small Bloomingdale Outlet stores, Tampa Bay Online reported.
“Certainly, Florida is one of the best states for outlet shopping,” said Arnie Orlick, senior vice president of outlet stores for Bloomingdale’s.
Orlick said they’re now sifting through market and customer data from existing Macy’s stores and evaluating them all “on a mall-by-mall basis.”
Bloomingdale’s just opened two outlet locations in Florida, one at the Dolphin Mall in Miami and another at the Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise. Another is set to open in Miromar Outlets south of Fort Myers this fall. [Tampa Bay Online]
