The Tanger Outlet Mall in Howell attracts a whopping 3 million visitors a year. We have a German friend, Rolf, who comes frequently for business to the Detroit area. He's a devotee of US shopping and told us this Tanger Mall on Burkhart Road is his favorite. The day we visited, there was even a large local chorus providing entertainment. These 75 or more stores receive goods direct from the factories and prices reflect up to a 70% discount.
