Exciting improvements are taking place at the new Sanibel Outlets, formerly Tanger Outlets, in southwest Fort Myers. The outlet mall with over 40 brand name stores, was renamed Sanibel Outlets due to its proximity of less than 2 miles from the Sanibel Causeway. In January of this year, the outlet mall was sold to Dahlmann Properties, one of the areas leading local developers. Dahlmann has plans underway for a dramatic new entry with a majestic fountain, gazebo, brick pavers, landscape lighting and exterior murals. The new name has resulted in new entry signs to Sanibel Outlets, but the distinctive turquoise roofs and refinished exterior siding remain as architectural features.
Sanibel Outlets is located at the intersection of Summerlin Road and McGregor Blvd. and has been a local destination since 1992. Its proximity to Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island also make it a very popular tourist destination. Local residents and tourists alike appreciate the great values and quality of the wide variety of factory outlet brands including Polo Ralph Lauren, Nike, Coach, Calvin Klein, Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers, Zales The Diamond Store, Loft, Under Armour, Crocs and many more. The new owners are finalizing a lease with a popular local restaurant, which will open in Sanibel Outlets this fall.
During the renovation, Sanibel Outlets will remain open during normal business hours (Mon-Sat: 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM; Sun: 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM). Enjoy discounts of up to 70% off name brands as you walk from store to store under shaded, breezy walkways. And, be sure to visit Shopper Services for a Free Coupon Book worth over $450 in savings!
Sanibel Outlets is located at 20350 Summerlin Road, Fort Myers, Florida 33908.
