Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why should Clarksburg have an outlet center?

A: The Clarksburg community has voiced the need for more shopping and dining options for many years. Clarksburg Premium Outlets at Cabin Branch will turn the unused, vacant Adventist Health Care property into an inviting, attractive and pedestrian-friendly shopping and dining destination that will be a true, long-term asset to the community. Featuring an exciting new outdoor green amphitheater and beautifully landscaped promenades, the outlet center will be more than a place to find designer clothes and have a family dinner. It will include a place for family and friends to gather and delight in local outdoor concerts and performances.

Q: What makes Clarksburg Premium Outlets at Cabin Branch different from other outlet center proposals?

A: Clarksburg residents and visitors will be able to enjoy this unique shopping experience faster than any other competing proposal.

In addition, this outlet center will bring more high-quality stores, a new outdoor green amphitheater and additional tax revenue to the community. This site is located in Cabin Branch, so it won’t have a negative environmental impact on Ten Mile Creek, like other proposals.

Q: What will be the traffic impact?

A: Because the site is located at the I-270/Rt. 121 interchange, this development will help reinvigorate business in the Town Center and Historic District with minimal impact on traffic congestion. It also does not have a direct impact on the Rt. 355 and Stringtown Road intersection.

Q: How can you be sure you will fill all of the retail space available?

A: The development team has relationships with the most sought after, high-end tenants so the team can deliver the high quality retailers and operations that Clarksburg and Montgomery County residents expect. In fact, Simon Property Group’s other malls and Premium Outlets are occupied at a very high-level – 95 percent – across the world. In addition, the malls and Premium Outlets are very successful bringing in more than $575 per square foot in sales. Its flagship center, Woodbury Common Premium Outlets®, north of New York City, with average sales in excess of $1,550/foot and annual sales exceeding $1.3 billion, is one of the most productive shopping destinations in the world. The team already has received a significant amount of interest from retailers in this project and is confident it can replicate Simon’s success across the world by producing a thriving outlet center in Clarksburg.

Q: What will be the impact on the Historic District and Town Center?

A: Clarksburg Premium Outlets® at Cabin Branch will bring the highest level of upscale outlet shopping right to Clarksburg. Add in a diverse mix of dining options and the outlet center is sure to energize the area’s retail and dining offerings while complementing existing local shops. As with Simon’s other successful properties such as Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets, Clarksburg Premium Outlets at Cabin Branch will attract regional attention to the area fueling demand for more retail in other parts of the community, such as the Town Center and Historic District. Because the site is located at the I-270/Rt. 121 interchange, this development will help reinvigorate business in the Town Center and Historic District with minimal impact on traffic congestion.

A: We’ve received a tremendous outpouring of support from the community, including hundreds of letters and emails of support to the Planning Board and Zoning Hearing Examiner.  Join our mailing list to stay informed about ways to get involved and help make sure this project continues to move forward.
