American Eagle Outfitters has committed to the Mall at University Town Center.
The apparel retailer, which targets young adults and teens, sells clothing and apparel items.
American Eagle joins anchors Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Dillard’s that have committed to the under-construction shopping center at University Parkway and Interstate 75, set to open in October 2014.
American Eagle has thousands of stores and outlet stores across the country, including at Westfield's Sarasota Square Mall and the Ellenton Premium Outlets.
"American Eagle Outfitters is one of the most popular and most requested apparel brands for young adults,” said Karen MacDonald, director of communications at Taubman Centers, which is developing the mall with Benderson Development.
Restaurants confirmed for the mall include Seasons 52, Fresh Grill and Wine Bar, and Brio Tuscan Grille, an Italian restaurant.
Taubman has said 50% of the 100-plus tenants will be unique to the area.
