July 18, 2013 – Glimcher Realty Trust (NYSE: GRT), one of the country’s premier retail real estate investment trusts, today released the tenant list for the newly renovated The Outlet Collection | Seattle. After the renovation is complete, the center will be 94% occupied with more than 100,000 square feet of new outlet retail brands. A grand re-opening is planned for October 17, 2013.

According to Marshall Loeb, President and Chief Operating Officer at Glimcher, “We are pleased with the progress of the transformation of The Outlet Collection | Seattle into a designer fashion outlet mall. We’ve improved the aesthetic and shopper experience and are seeing strong interest from top designer brands, like Coach, Michael Kors, Nike, and J. Crew. The project is exceeding expectations and is on track to deliver meaningful growth, doubling sales per square foot.”

Glimcher announced a $35 million renovation of The Outlet Collection | Seattle in May 2012, which included a more modern aesthetic, rebranding the center under The Outlet Collection brand, and taking it from a hybrid to pure outlet center.

Located in Auburn, Wash., the center will become the largest fully enclosed outlet center in the Pacific Northwest.
