(3.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This outlet is nice and clean. The parking lot is often completely packed during peak days. Although the stores are obviously indoors, much of the paths that connect the stores are outside. The outdoor walkways are between the stores. The building was formerly a conventional indoor mall; but, a massive renovation has creatively transformed the former interior halls into outdoor sidewalks and benches. The advantage is that customers get an outdoor experience without the heat and constant exposure to parking lot traffic.
  • I love the way they look. I also have had a great experience in a shopping out there. They are very convenient . The variety of shops are extremely interesting and fun to explore.
  • This mall has a lot of shops and is clean and well laid out. Parking can be an issue on the street side, driving around to the back is your best option. The Public Safety officers can be a bit aggressive about loading unloading passengers, by asking you to move on if you stop too long by the curb. There is only one restaurant in the mall right now and it's not good at all, so plan to leave for lunch or dinner.
  • Typical outlet mall, with nice seating areas and very limited food options. Don't miss the Dillard's outlet (which has been there long before it was an outlet mall) which has unbeatable pricing and value. Otherwise, this outlet mall is what you will find anywhere else.
  • I love the assortment of stores at this outlet. Great deals throughout and I enjoyed the weather/open design. I was told more food court options are coming soon.
