— Alamance County will be a shopping destination when a new Tanger Outlet mall opens off Interstate 40/85 in Mebane later this fall.

On Tuesday, the media got a sneak peek at the center, which will have 80 stores with more than 300,000 feet of total retail space.

The project is creating jobs, too. A job fair for more than 800 full- and part-time retail positions will be held Sept. 16 at the Mebane Art & Community Center, 622 Corregidor St.

The center is expected to open to shoppers on Nov. 5.
