Come join the fun and the festivities this grand opening weekend," said Robyne Kintz, Director of Marketing for Chelsea Premium Outlets.

Some lines were so long there was an hour wait for one particular store.

"I'm here at the Coach store today. I have been waiting for an hour to find good deals, to see what I can bargain for, to find a good purse for the season," said a Coach fanatic Gloria Salinas. "I have already bought five purses this year alone and I am going to see what else I can find to have for the rest of the year."

"We have been waiting here for an hour and hopefully we are going to get some great deals and save a lot of money," said another customer.

The 4-day grand opening celebration will feature live entertainment from popular area bands, in-store promotions, chances to win great prizes and more.

"We have extended shopping hours we have something for everyone. We have music, playgrounds and luxury brands, so come on down," said Kintz.
