Nebraska Crossing: Full list of stores and mall layout

Coming Sunday: A further look at the mall's progress and its prospects for success.


The countdown to opening day for the $112 million Nebraska Crossing Outlets in Gretna brings a new sign of progress every day, including the sign above.

The mall opens Nov. 15, and it's a hub of activity as more than 400 workers paint, wire and plumb, landscape and finish the center. Landscapers arrived this week with truckloads of saplings and shrubs.

Inside Helzberg Diamonds, workers finished laying the wood floors and moved cabinetry into place.

The center will open with about 70 stores.

The 350,000-square-foot shopping center off Interstate 80 near Gretna will open with about 70 stores.

The mall replaces a 20-year-old outlet mall that was demolished last spring.
