Many changes have taken place to the outdoor center over the past decade to keep up with the latest trends and to offer shoppers the most popular brands in fashion and home furnishings. Just last fall, a new wing opened featuring eight stores anchored by a two-story, 124,000 square-foot Nordstrom. The national retailer known for its outstanding service offers a variety of upscale brands like Jimmy Choo, Prada, Alexander McQueen and Tory Burch. The store also houses two restaurants. Bazillo Bistro serves a sit-down lunch and dinner along with a full bar, and Ebar offers grab-and-go sandwiches and gourmet, artisan coffee. The store employs eight personal stylists to work with customers on an individualized basis.
