Nicholas Barrett is the manager of the Tanger Outlets in Myrtle Beach.  He says there's a huge benefit working at these locations that hire local workers. It's a chance to turn the job into something more. "There's a lot of opportunity. We hire hundreds… probably a thousand employees at each center every year. So there's a lot of opportunity and it's a good-paying job that leads to management opportunities in the future."
