Taking the shopping experience to the 120th power

November 02, 2012

Rose Hotel guests never complain about the options available to them for that great national pastime: shopping. From the multitude of independent shops right outside our front door along historic Main Street, to the sprawling Stoneridge Mall, to the colorful confines of Hacienda Crossings in neighboring Dublin, Calif., (to name a few excellent retail centers), those in hot pursuit of goods and services are never disappointed.

Paragon Outlets
The new Paragon Outlets factory outlet center

And this situation is about to get immensely better with the Nov. 8 grand opening of Paragon Outlets, the Tri-Valley’s largest retail complex yet with 543,000 square feet of sharply designed retail space situated on 42 acres along Interstate 580. Think 120 retailers anchored by the likes of Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. There are many other brands discriminating shoppers will relish, such as Armani, Barney’s, Coach, Michael Kors and Prada. Check out this more complete list on the Paragon Outlets’ website.

These factory outlet stores are housed in a modern, walkable, retail center in neighboring Livermore, Calif., just a short drive from The Rose Hotel. Besides easy freeway access, Paragon Outlets had made provisions for ample parking, and it features amenities that include miles of adjacent multi-use trails and a future public park.

The $162 million development is the largest factory outlet center in Northern California, and it already has future expansion plans.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The Champagne and Confetti Grand Opening is at 10 a.m. Nov. 8. You’re invited to join Livermore city officials, tourism representatives and media members to officially launch Paragon Outlets at a ceremony near the retail center’s Food Court. Throughout the day there will be:

  • Shopping
  • In-store events and sales specials
  • On-site entertainment
  • Sweepstake prizes totaling more than $10,000

We have rooms available at the hotel and can arrange transportation for our guests, if you act fast. We’re likely to run out of vacancy quickly because the Paragon Outlets’ staff will, of course, be in town for the Grand Opening celebration. Many of them have been staying at The Rose during the development and construction phases of the project.

Don’t miss the excitement – or the deals. Give us a call at 925-846-8802 and we’ll make arrangements. It’s a perfect opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping.
