SIMPSONVILLE, KY (WAVE) – After receiving thousands of suggestions through emails and Facebook developers announced the name of new outlet shopping center.

Horizon Group Properties, Inc. and CBL & Associates Properties, Inc. said they decided the stores off of Interstate 64, located at Exit 28 and Kentucky Road 1848, will be called The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass.

"We believe that The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass will draw travelers from a large area throughout Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and Indiana," said Mr. Skoien. "The new name reflects the scenic area that surrounds the center and provides a name that is easily identifiable to tourists."

Construction on the 374,300 square-foot, 50-acre development began in May 2013.

Developers said the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass will bring an estimated 1,000 jobs and generate sales taxes of $8 million for the Commonwealth.
