Tampa Premium Outlets, owned by Simon Property Group, celebrated its grand opening October 29 – November 1.  The new mall, which has nine buildings, is located at 2300 Grand Cypress Drive. Just off Interstate 75 at State Road 56, the shopping center is actually located in Lutz, FL. On my visit to the new outlet mall I was invited to join the free VIP Shoppers Club and enjoy its exclusive lounge. I was also given a VIP Coupon Book, which is available on each visit, and a delicious red velvet cake pop, which was an opening celebration treat and unfortunately not promised on every visit.
