Construction Zone

January 10, 2017

Blog ImageHave you driven down I-80 near Altoona recently? If so you may have noticed the major construction going on behind Bass Pro!  The 300,000 sq foot, 9 building outlet mall, named Outlets of Des Moines, is set to open October 20, 2017. Names of retailers are expected to be announced this summer.  This is not only long-awaited by residents of Altoona, but a great opportunity for Des Moines as well. With the closing of Southridge Mall a few years ago, the eastern side of Des Moines has been missing a large retail option.  Other businesses are going up in the are as well. It's an exciting time in to be in eastern Polk County!
