Overview - Outlets at Anthem:
About 15 minutes north of where the Loop 101 and I-17 intersect in north Phoenix, there is an outdoor outlet shopping area situated near the master-planned community of Anthem. These stores replaced the ones that were previously known as New River Outlets. If you don't live in that area, plan to stop on your way to or from destinations north, like Sedona and Flagstaff.
Anchor or main stores:
Since this is an outlet mall, there are really no anchor stores here but there are some very large stores. Coach, Nike, Banana Republic, Ralph Lauren and Ann Taylor all have a big presence. There are plenty of stores for little kids, and if you are shopping for shoes it's almost like Disneyland.
My favorite stores at Outlets at Anthem:
As far as my favorites, I'd have to say Banana Republic, Coach, J. Crew, Columbia Sportswear, Bath & Body Works and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
The food court offers choices including pizza, Asian and sandwiches. I had a pretzel dog and it hit the spot!
