Taubman Prestige Outlets may be the first mall in St. Louis to encourage shoppers to bring along their dogs. The outlet mall offers "dog friendly hospitality," which includes dog comfort and watering stations. Plus, three-quarters of the retailers will allow well-behaved, leashed dogs into their stores, O'Neill said. "It's a very unique shopping experience," she said — one that's been popular at three other Taubman projects.
Retailers at the new outlet mall are hiring, and a list of openings can be found online.
