Expert says Tanger's Mebane Oultet wont draw many customers.

Britt Beemer, the chief executive of America's Research Group, said he doesn't expect the outlet center to draw many customers away from shopping centers in the Triad, such as Hanes Mall in Winston-Salem, and Friendly Center, the Shops at Friendly Center and Four Seasons Town Centre in Greensboro. Those malls are 30 to 60 miles from Mebane.

"I can't imagine that much of their business comes from that far away," Beemer said.

What do you think? The journal is also sponsoring a vote: "Would you drive an hour or more to shop at an outlet mall?"

I think Tanger needs to get everyone on that web site and have them vote YES!
