The stores for Ugg, known for sheepskin boots, and Asics, known for athletic footwear, are due to open this fall. The sushi eatery, with counter service, should open later in the year, executives said.
The additions are part of a continuing expansion at the mall,
which already boasts more than 350 stores and ranks as the country’s largest for outlets and what industry experts call “value retail.”
Sawgrass Mills is now adding 140,000 square feet for retail on the south side of the property. That area will soon include an outlet for Steve Madden shoes, a Columbia Sportswear outlet and a shop for Volcom, known for outfitting youthful surfers, skateboarders and snowboarders.
Plus, the mall is expanding its luxury Colonnade Outlets area by 40,000 square feet. New stores in that wing will include the first outlets in the area for designers Diane Von Furstenberg and Robert Graham. Some existing stores such as Prada and Giorgio Armani General Store also will relocate to the wing.
Sawgrass Mills also has been shifting the mix of stores in its existing space. It recently opened the first outlets in the area for golfer Greg Norman sportswear, Original Penguin menswear and bareMinerals makeup. The mall also welcomed a second shop for designer Michael Kors,
