It’s a positive sign that the economy is continuing to improve; the Bend Factory Stores have added a couple of new tenants to the shopping center.
Sherry Short with Bend Factory Stores says the addition of the Coach Factory Stores is drawing a lot of business interest. "It's huge for what the market is becoming. Because with coach coming in is amazing. Because they are a very high-end outlet store. And usually when coach comes, a lot more tenants follow. And that's what we saw right away. As soon as we signed Coach, we heard about other tenants, and they approached us and wanted to be in the mall as well."
Short says also a Pendleton Outlet has opened up; as well as seasonal stores like Hickory Farms.
The Bend Factory Stores is planning a “Moonlight Madness Sale” with stores opening at 10 p.m. Thursday night and special promotions throughout the weekend.
