PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

More than a thousand people are working to get ready for the new outlet mall opening in Pearl, November 14th. It will be Mississippi's largest outlet mall with almost 80 stores represented.

It is a 325,000 square foot, $80 million dollar development. Many of the stores are already set to go for the grand opening, others are still in the process of setting up.

The mall will have many stores that do not have other outlets in Mississippi, like Saks Fifth Avenue. It has many Mississippi features like a country music and blues trail map showing where artists in both fields lived.

Mall General Manager Kathy Hacksaw acted as our guide through the facility.

It'll be ready. When you look at it and walk around you think, oh man, how will this be ready, but everybody is working at the exact same time and we are on target," said Hacksaw. "What I am proudest of is one thing that is behind us, a huge marble wall depicting the Country Music Trail in the state of Mississippi, on the other side is the Blues Trail."

The food court in the new outlet mall has four restaurants and can serve 300 people.

They tell us everything will be ready for the November 14th opening. The developers, Spectrum Incorporated of Jackson, expect it to be a destination mall.
