The $100 million outlet mall in Eagan is still under construction, but the operators have announced plans for a job fair to fill more than 1,600 positions in time for its Aug. 14 grand opening.

Twin Cities Business reports that the Twin Cities Premium Outlets will hold the job fair on June 6 and will seek applicants for positions ranging from store associates to management to security.  KSTP reports the daylong job fair will be held at the Eagan Civic Arena at 3830 Pilot Knob Road.

Earlier this week, the Business Journal reported that the new outlet was "closing in on deals for its last remaining vacancies." The story goes on to say that one of the Journal's real estate sources who recently inquired about getting 5,000 square feet for a prospective tenant "was told there wasn't enough room available."

The latest stores announced for the 409,000-square-foot outlet mall include Under Armour, Bass, Christopher & Banks, Crocs, Lucky Brand Jeans Outlet, Eddie Bauer Outlet, Express, Kitchen Collection, Lids Locker Room, Tilly's, and the Motherhood Maternity Outlet.

Earlier this year, the mall announced that its space was 90 percent committed. It will ultimately have more than 100 stores, including Coach, Michael Kors, Nike, and Gap Factory Store, Upscale retailer Saks Fifth Avenue’s discount outlet, Sak’s Off Fifth, will anchor the mall with a 28,000-square-foot store.

Paragon Outlet Partners, a Baltimore-based commercial real estate firm, owns a 65 percent stake in the Twin Cities Premium Outlets, located at the intersection of Highway 13 and Highway 77. The remainder is owned by the Indianapolis-based Simon Property Group.
