ROSEMONT, Ill. (CBS) — A high-end fashion outlet mall opened Thursday morning in Rosemont — the first new indoor mall in the Chicago area in two decades — and the huge deals stores are offering could bring in big crowds.
CBS 2’s Susanna Song reports the new Fashion Outlets of Chicago could be a huge economic boost for Rosemont, but also might create bigger traffic problems for the northwestern suburbs.
Because it’s the grand opening, you can expect deep discounts today and throughout the weekend. J. Crew is offering 40 percent off; The Gap is offering 70 percent off.
