A short drive west from Palm Springs lies the Desert Hills Premium Outlets in Cabazon. Opened in 1990, Desert Hills has long since been a star center boasting luxury outlets such as Dolce & Gabana, Gucci, Marni, Prada, and more, offering savings of 25-65% every day.
Over the past 18 months, Desert Hills has been transformed by a $100M expansion. The expansion features 50 new stores, totaling 146,000 square feet of gross leasing area (GLA). This brings the entire property to 180 stores and 650,000 square feet of GLA. The expansion also includes a 1,100-space parking structure, new soft seating areas, wider walkways and a new Information Center. More than 100,000 landscape plats were installed, including more than 125 palm trees, all of which are drought tolerant.
The expansion will house the first North American outlet stores for Alexander McQueen, Belstaff and Helmut Lang. It will also feature a number of other high end stores including CH Carolina Herrera, Fendi, Max Mara, Rag and Bone, Sandro, Valentino, Wolford and more. In addition to the new stores at Desert Hills, some of the current stores have expanded with increased floor space.
Aside from the increased shopping opportunities and renovated facilities, the expansion will have a huge economic impact for the area. It will generate more than $3,000,000 annually in sales tax revenue, and create an additional 400-500 permanent and part-time jobs.
All this weekend (April 24 thru 27), Desert Hills Premium Outlets will be kicking off the expansion with a four-day celebration. During each day of the grand opening ceremony from noon to 5:00pm, shoppers can visit the VIP Shopper Lounge to register for the VIP Shopper Club (or sign up online here), and enjoy an air-conditioned relaxation area featuring massage chairs, social media photo booth, and special offers from stores. Festivities throughout the Outlets include live entertainment by local musicians, in-store promotions, and giveaways, including a $5,000 shopping spree grand prize. Register at the VIP Shopper Lounge or Information Centers for your chance to win!
