Outlet Shoppes at Laredo allowing customers to "Sip and Shop"

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Shoppers who frequent the Outlet Shoppes at Laredo will now be able to enjoy an adult beverage while they shop.

The outlet mall is now allowing customers to “Sip and Shop” when they visit the stores.

As long as the shopper is 21 or older, they have the option of purchasing a beer or wine from Johnny Rockets or Stone and Stein; however, there are a few rules to keep in mind.

You can only drink them within common areas of the mall, which is the two floors where the store are located.

The majority of the stores will allow you in; however, participation is at the store’s discretion.

Shoppers say they like the new idea and say this could boost more business.

Every Thursday the Outlet Shoppes will have their own happy hour where certain beverages will be on sale at a discount price.

Representatives with the outlets are also looking to bring more entertainment to the mall as well.
