While LA certainly has enough exciting retailers to keep our credit cards quivering, it never hurts to venture out on a good old shopping road trip. We're particularly fond of off-the-gride outlets, such as Citadel, Camarillo and Desert Hills. If we ever find ourselves en route to Bakersfield (a detour before Vegas, perhaps?), we'll soon have a new I-5 pitstop, thanks to The Outlets at Tejon Ranch.
Slated to open this August, the 320,000-square foot "upscale value retail destination" was developed by Tejon Ranch Co. and The Rockefeller Group. The space promises to house more than 70 stores, include a 22,000-square-foot H&M. The brand tells us that this store will "include full-priced collections for lingerie, accessories, maternity and it's plus-size line H&M+" and "a children's collection with clothing for newborns to 14 years."
Per Tejon's website, additional occupants include Banana Republic, Aeropostale, Gap, Coach and Hot Topic.
