PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A major anchor store at the Pearl Outlet mall will soon be folding up and moving out. Saks Off 5th will close next month.

Saks Off 5th was unveiled as a premier upscale outlet store at this retail facility in Pearl when it opened.  In fact it's the largest anchor store with 20 thousand square feet of shopping.

Mark downs are generous now and inside racks are getting bare. March 15 Saks will close.  

The outlet mall general manager said there was nothing they could do. They received notice of the closure three months ago according to Kathy Hackshaw.

According to Hackshaw the owners, Canadian based Hudson Bay Company has made a decision to reevaluate what they are doing with their outlets and they are closing quite a few outlets nationwide."

But in the world of retail when one door closes another often opens up. According to Hackshaw Thursday, prospects are already in the works. She declined to say what businesses might open shop, adding they are not allowed to announce any new tenants coming in until they receive permission to announce them.

The Pearl outlet mall has been an attractive sight for shoppers. The general manager says sales and traffic are up.
