ALTOONA, Ia. - So it's not quite Halloween yet, but retailers are already prepping for the mad dash of holiday shoppers.
The newest shopping spot in the metro is only days away from opening in Altoona, just in time for the gift-giving season.
The crew at Outlets of Des Moines spent the day putting final touches on storefronts and displays ahead of Friday's grand opening.
We stopped by the mall early Wednesday morning to see the progress.
Members of the opening team say it's exciting to see the outlet mall finally come to life.
"From the bottom up we've seen them pour the concrete, you know, put the stores together now it's been amazing to see the merchandise go into the stores. The store displays are going up, it's just been a lot of fun to see the whole progress from start to finish.", says Julie Dawson, the Marketing Director for Outlets of Des Moines.
Tomorrow night, the Outlets are holding a charity preview event, which will benefit 20 organizations from around the metro.
You can buy a ticket ahead of time and the entire proceeds from your purchase will go to the charity of your choice.
