Adidas, Swarovski among retailers trying to fill jobs at Nebraska Crossing

Retailers planning to open factory outlet stores at the new $112 million mall in Gretna are advertising for store managers and other retail jobs, revealing two stores not previously announced: Adidas, a footwear and sports apparel retailer, and Swarovski, which sells jewelry, cut crystal and gifts.

Smart Outlets at Nebraska Crossing, which will feature software that interacts with customers and more than 70 outlet and factory stores, is expected to open Nov. 15, developer Rodney Yates of Arizona-based OTB Destination LLC has said.

Although the date is more than four months away, a half-dozen brands have posted job descriptions for openings at their respective Nebraska Crossing outlet stores.

Swarovski's advertisment for a Nebraska Crossing outlet store manager, which can be found on the company's website and online job boards, seeks a candidate with leadership and coaching ability, able to advise “customers competently with charm and humor.”

Adidas is accepting online applications for sales staff and a store manager with a four-year college degree in business, retail management or related field and at least one year's experience as a retail manager to run its new outlet store at Nebraska Crossing, according to the retailer's website.

So far, 25 tenants, including American Eagle, Brooks Brothers, Chico's, Gymboree, Polo Ralph Lauren, Ann Taylor, Loft, J. Crew, Gap, Banana Republic, White House Black Market and a Scooter's Coffee, have signed leases. Carter's and OshKosh also will be back.

American Eagle Outfitters, Brooks Brothers, Gymboree and Chico's are among those seeking retail workers.

Yates, who is developing the mall in partnership with its majority owner, Frank Krejci of Omaha's Century Development, declined to comment.

The 350,000-square-foot mall, located at the intersection of Interstate 80 and U.S. Highways 6 and 31, was designed by Avant Architects and is being built by Kiewit Building Group, both of Omaha.

The new mall, which will have an oval racetrack configuration, will allow retailers to cluster near one another. The former 170,000-square-foot mall was built in 1993 as a quarter-mile strip, a design that did not appeal to prospective retailers. It was demolished earlier this year.

The new mall's first vertical beams were erected last month.
