CHESTERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. -

Some serious shopping is shaping up to come to metro Detroit. Plans for new outlet malls are in the works for Romulus and Canton, but one slated for Chesterfield Township is the closest to coming to fruition.

The plan is to the bring some of the most respected names in fashion to an upscale outlet mall to town, and talks and tours of the site with those upscale luxury brands are already in process.

Center manager Tom Guastello, who is based in Birmingham and who has plenty of experience with shopping centers and hotels, already has the ball rolling and owns the future outlet site.

Two other out-of-town developers are planning to build outlet malls in the metro area as well. A Baltimore-based developer is under contract to buy land near 275 Qand Ford Road in Canton and a Massachusetts-based developer is under contract to buy land in Romulus near the metro airport.
