Michael Kors to open at Altoona outlet mall

Outlets of Des Moines in Altoona is adding another store. Designer clothing and accessories retailer Michael Kors will open there this spring.

The store will be located next to Loft in the center of the outlet center. A sign announcing the addition covers the store’s window.

Also opening this spring will be two previously announced retailers Lucky Brand Jeans and American Eagle.

Michael Kors had operated a full-line store at Jordan Creek Town Center in West Des Moines before closing last year.

Outlets of Des Moines, 801 Bass Pro Drive, opened in October in the Shoppes at Prairie Crossing, a fledging retail, commercial and residential development south of Bass Pro Shops.

There are 37 stores that are open, with about 20 more to join the retail center, mall officials have said.

The $100 million center, developed and operated by New England Development, is an open-air mall at Interstate Highway 80 and Iowa Highway 65.
