’Tis the season for holiday shopping and what a better way to do it then taking a trip to the Philadelphia Premium Outlets? Three new stores will be open at this destination for visitors to shop for the holidays: Beef Jerky Outlet, Go Popcorn and Ten Thousands Villages.

The Beef Jerky Outlet spices up the Simon Center by offering more than 200 options of turkey, salmon, buffalo and even alligator jerky. Their items are mostly sold by the ounce or pre packed.

“We are excited to open a business within the local community. Opening a store during this time of year with natural retail traffic picking up in anticipation for the holidays was ideal,” says Ellen Nonnemacher, one of the owners of the Beef Jerky Outlet.​

She continues: “We do think the store is an added value for the outlets. It’s a unique experience, offering both products and experience that aren’t found elsewhere on-site. Our ‘try before you buy’ policy ensures guests love what they are purchasing.”

Another edition this season is Go Popcorn — a carnival-themed shop that will sell over 35 flavors of popcorn, locally grown in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania. For those looking for unique gifts for the holiday season, Ten Thousands Village is another new retailer of artisan-crafted home decor, accessories and other items from across the globe.

Kate Johnson, director of marketing & business development at the outlet mall located in Pottstown, said: “All three of these store openings are incredibly unique to the market and help us further differentiate our shopping experience from competitors. Having them open just before the busy holiday shopping season is exciting, as both loyal and new customers will get to experience their specialized offerings.”
