The revamped Nebraska Crossing Outlets in Gretna opens Friday, and here are five things you'll need to know:

>> Stores open today at 10 a.m. following an 8:30 a.m. ribbon cutting. The mall's hours generally are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

>> The new main entrance is at Nebraska Crossing Drive and Highways 6 and 31, accessed from Exit 432 on Interstate 80. Watch for extra sheriff's patrols and message boards. And, remember, the Huskers play in Lincoln at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, so expect extra traffic.

>> The shopping center has more than 1,600 parking spaces, but consider carpooling.

>> Some stores and restaurants won't be open yet: The Burger Star and Big Cheese restaurants open next month. The Pieocracy pizza restaurant is expected to open the first of the year, said Greg Cutchall, owner of Cutchall Management Co., which will operate the three eateries. BeautyFirst, Famous Footwear, Justice and Old Navy are expected to open in January.

>> Need to find a store? Look for the interactive, touch-screen kiosks. Use a QR code scanner on your mobile device to download information. Need a break? There are three public restrooms near Under Armour, Michael Kors and Big Cheese, and some stores and restaurants also have accessible restrooms. Need cash? There will be two Great Western ATMs. One is right outside of Kay Jewelers, the other in Parking Lot K.
