The Outlet Collection Seattle, formerly SuperMall of the Great Northwest, is an outlet mall in Auburn, Washington. It is anchored by Bed Bath & Beyond, Burlington Coat Factory, Marshalls, Nordstrom Rack, Old Navy, Sam's Club and LA Fitness (formerly VisionQuest).

History[edit]

Upon opening in 1995, its original anchors included Nordstrom Rack, Bed Bath and Beyond, Oshman's Sports, Burlington Coat Factory, Marshalls, and Incredible Universe.[2] Incredible Universe closed in 1997[3] and became Sam's Club in 1999.[4]

In its first year of business, the mall drew more than 14 million customers and comprised 175 stores.[5] By 1998, Off Fifth had closed.[6]

In May 2012, Glimcher announced that Supermall would be renamed The Outlet Collection Seattle.[7]

New development has occurred in and around the mall since the mid-2000s, with the addition of several strip malls and restaurants. This culminated in 2010 with the opening of a new Walmart Supercenter.[8]
