    From Buffalo Business First:

    Driving along the Queen Elizabeth Way, it is hard not to see the Outlet Collection at Niagara.

    At 520,000-square-feet and with 102 stores, the outlet mall — which is scheduled to open on May 15 — is designed to attract shoppers and visitors, especially those who might have otherwise crossed the border and headed to places like Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls, the Walden Galleria or Boulevard Mall.

    At least that’s what the mall’s developers hope.

    Expansion of the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls received environmental approval Tuesday as the Town Board approved a number of resolutions that clear the way for construction to begin.

    The board, which has been reviewing the site plan and how the expansion will impact traffic, drainage, noise and air quality as well as aesthetics, voted unanimously to allow the work to start. As lead agent in the state environmental quality review process, the board had to substantiate a negative finding on the various impacts.

    From WKBW Channel 7 in Buffalo:

    If you’re anywhere near a local mall these days there’s good chance you’ll spot even more Canadian license plates than usual. That’s because the Canadian dollar has grown stronger and now goes further at U.S. Stores.

    Better selection and lower taxes on this side of the border have long drawn Canadians. “We’re saving a lot more because the taxes are lower,” says Marianne Bolonga of Niagara Falls, Ontario who was shopping with a friend on Wednesday at the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls, NY.

    “Pretty much you can’t get the brands back in Canada so just better to come over here I guess,” says Blair Fontana, a Canadian shopping for clothes at the Fashion Outlets.
