NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) – A new high-end luxury mall is coming to Nashville.
Nashvillians had to travel to places like Atlanta and New York for high-end shopping. Now they can find designer brands like Gucci in Nashville.
Shoppers in malls like Anne Derby love a bargain.
“Wherever there’s a Coach outlet – I’m there,” Derby said.
She bought her handbag at a mall in Colorado and it was reduced by hundreds of dollars.
“It’s a godsend,” said Derby.
According to website for Simon’s, the company that owns The Mall at Green Hills, there are plans to build a high-end luxury outlet in Nashville. They won’t say exactly where it will go, but they have similar properties in California and New York.
In 2023, a high-end luxury outlet will open in the “high-income” southern area of Music City. This comes as the outlet in Antioch is under construction and the outlet in Lebanon is being revitalized. What do you think? #development #ontherise @nc5 pic.twitter.com/VQkYKVZ2qf

The outlet is different from Tanger Outlets in Antioch which is under construction. There is also a push to revitalize the Lebanon Outlet Mall in Wilson County.
“If it was closer to downtown, it would probably be better because people are usually here for Broadway,” said Nashville shopper Taylor Loring. “I know 5th and Broadway have new stores in that direction, so something close to that would probably be fine.”
Loring said it was interesting that malls were making a comeback. With inflation and rising prices, people want good brands at discounted prices.
“I do – especially with online shopping and everything at the moment – I think that’s the direction people are going, so for malls to come back, I think that’s pretty interesting for the economy,” Loring said.
The new luxury outlet is expected to begin construction in 2023.
