Factory Outlet Shopping Mall
Asheville Outlets, formerly Biltmore Square Mall, is a shopping mall located just off I-26 on Brevard Road (North Carolina Highway 191) in Asheville, North Carolina. Built in 1989 with Hess's, Proffitt's, and Belk as its anchor stores, the mall was redeveloped as an outlet center in 2015, featuring Field & Stream, Forever 21, VF Outlet, and Dillard's among its major stores.HistoryIn March 1998, the mall management did attempt to resist annexation of the property on which they reside into the city of Asheville. The attempt was unsuccessful.In November 2006, Symphony Property Group and two local investment groups purchased the shopping center with the assistance of a third party loan. Thereafter the managing firm disclosed that the owner decided to expand the property in the first quarter of 2007 by an additional 83000sqft.Cinebarre, a new concept in movie theaters and restaurants, was unveiled in the Biltmore Square Mall in 2007. Food, beer, and wine are served before and during the screening of films in the theater.The mall closed on January 31, 2014, except for the anchors and Dollar Tree. Belk closed at the end of 2014.The mall reopened on May 1, 2015 as an outlet mall called Asheville Outlets. Its new anchor stores are Dillard's & Field & Stream, with other stores including Nike Factory Store, Under Armour, Coach, Abercrombie & Fitch and about 50 other stores. It is an open-air mall.

Where to stay in Asheville

To take advantage of the best Asheville has to offer without breaking the bank, stay at one of the city's small motels, many of which offer free breakfast buffets and plenty of secure parking. Asheville's historical district contains most of the city's bed and breakfasts, allowing you to stay within a short walk of downtown shopping, dining, and entertainment. The area also boasts numerous budget-friendly hostels, offering inexpensive private rooms for backpackers. For something completely different, rent an eco-friendly cabin in a wooded area just a short drive from the city.

  • This is actually a nice place and great store selections. The prices are great and I did have a pretzel and it was delicious. I just enjoyed all the options here.  more »
  • With only about 35 stores it is a bit small but was a quaint setting. The food court was good and the centre's staff were helpful. Crowds were small. A free shuttle is supplied by the centre and will ...  more »

  • Small but wonderful. My husband loved the beef jerky outlet and the whole family found some good deals. The food court and restrooms were adequate and clean. But the best place for lunch was Starbucks if you are seeking a lighter healthier fare.
  • Awesome outlets located southwest of Asheville proper. Has a great range of shops, what you would expect at most outlets. The restoration hardware outlet was a GREAT find, not many exist. Highly recommend looking at their website before going to familiarize yourself with the stores available here. Huge Dillard's here as well. Nice little food court.
  • Well laid out and accessible. Lots of great stores with good prices (exception: Brooks Brothers, very expensive as always). Found some great deals on clothing, suits and casuals. Great gift items, too. Expect to spend at least two to four hours here, especially if shopping with folks who want to look at EVERYTHING! Overall, a good experience.
  • Great outlet mall! Lots of fun activities going on the day I visited - games for the kids, a pet adoption event. Good selection of stores, mix of outlets and regular retail.
  • The outlets are pretty cool. It is way better than the mall that used to be here. I really like all the stores that are here. And they keep adding to it which is very cool.
