Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets gets new name

Crews were installing new signage on Tuesday.

The Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets mall in Leesburg has officially gotten a new name — one that probably brings it closer to what we all call it anyway. Henceforth, it will be known simply as thee Leesburg Premium Outlets. No more “corner” in the name.

Simon, the huge shopping center company that owns the Outlets, made the announcement Monday and when we passed by today (Tuesday), crews were hard at work changing the signage around the center.

The new name is part of a major refresh the mall has been getting over the past year or so. Improvements include:

  • a new Food Hall with a stylish dining room and updated bathrooms
  • new walkways
  • new outdoor seating
  • a fire pit and other gathering areas
  • an interactive green space
  • an upgraded children’s play area
  • free public WiFi
  • digital directories
  • refreshed landscaping

The project to upgrade the center is scheduled to wrap up by the summer of 2020.

    One last hurrah and remodel … this seems to be the typical trend before a mall goes under. Hope this place is around a good while longer even so.

    Oh boy they removed “corner”. Do they think that will entice more shoppers? I think not.

    I find the pricing at the outlet stores is not comparable to online or (in some cases) even Walmart.

    For example, I recently went to the Leesburg outlets to look for luggage. I was looking for nothing fancy, just 4-wheels to help relieve the stress on my back and legs.

    Every outlet store that sells luggage could not come close to what I eventually purchased online with free shipping and pickup at the Sterling Walmart.

    Maybe this was an isolated case for a specific type of item, but I’m willing to bet that other things are probably in a similar “not exactly the best price” mode.

    Well, knowing all the similar names in this area, some people may have thought Leesburg and Leesburg Corner were different towns?
