Starting this week, Tanger Outlets Mebane will start a new program designed for kids and their adults.
"Mommy and Me," though dads are welcome, runs 10 a.m. to noon, on the first Wednesday of each month from April to September.
This week, Mr. Casey the Storyman will perform children's interactive entertainment. The morning also includes some other special guests, according to the center's website. The first 15 moms who register at the door, Suite 742 between Michael Kors and Kay Jewelers, will get a $10 gift card and giveaways at the end of the show.
In addition to lots of stores and deals, the center also has a nice playground for kids. It's about 45 minutes from the center of Raleigh.
There are lots of stores here, including several shops with gear for kids such as Carter's, Colubia, Gap, Old Navy (which is new), Crewcuts, Gymboree, OshKosh B'gosh, Polo Ralph Lauren, The Children's Place and Under Armour. At my house, we've spent a little money at the Nike and Converse stores too.
