ASHEVILLE – With one tweet and one Facebook post Monday morning, Asheville Outlets momentarily stopped the ongoing speculation about which stores will be coming to the retail center when it opens May 1.

With plans to announce the full list of stores in the coming weeks exclusively through social media, the shopping center leaked the names of 12 stores Monday.

The 325,000-square-foot shopping center at 800 Brevard Road will feature about 75 retail stores when it opens May 1.

The first dozen shops announced Monday are ASICS, Auntie Anne's, Banana Republic Factory Store, Carter's Babies and Kids, Coach Outlet, Field and Stream, Johnston and Murphy Factory Store, Rack Room Shoes, Sunglass Hut, Talbots Outlet, Fragrance Outlet and Tommy Hilfiger.

When Field and Stream opens at the Asheville Outlets this spring, it will be the second Field and Stream store in North Carolina.
