(The Grand Opening of the Gran Plaza)….Calexico has been planning this event for years.
The Outlet Mall will officially open at 9:30 Friday morning. The celebration will continue throughout the weekend. Following opening presentations, shoppers will be welcomed with a red carpet walk and VIP shopping passes. Calexico expects the Gran Plaza to boost sales tax and create thousands of new local jobs. It is located west of the Calexico Port of Entry, and it is expected to draw most of its customers from Mexicali, though customers from around the Valley are encouraged to visit the newest addition to the business community. Shoppers will be treated to various events throughout the weekend.
