Music City’s retail scene is growing by 290,000 sqft this week.

Tanger Outlets Nashville, located along I-24 at Antioch’s Century Farms development, opens Friday, Oct. 27 with a weekend-long celebration. The seven-building open-air outlet shopping center features a mix of ~60 local and national retail and dining brands.

Retail recap

Tanger Outlets Nashville broke ground in May 2022 and shares a community with nearby apartments complexes, medical buildings, and Nashville SC’s training facility.

Since then, several local favorites announced Tanger Nashville locations, including TailGate Brewery, Prince’s Hot Chicken, Hollie Ray Boutique, and Red Bicycle Coffee. Pottery Barn Outlet, Ulta Beauty, Old Navy, Crocs, and Crumbl Cookies are among the national brands.

Pro tip: Bookmark the store directory to keep track of grand openings, as not all shops will open this weekend.
