My internship is located at the Tanger Outlets Deer Park center, and no – deer don’t stroll through the center! Well, at least during the day…

Deer Park is on Long Island and is one of two Tanger centers in New York. The other location is Riverhead, which is also on the island but is closer to the Hamptons. Tanger Outlets Riverhead is only 15 minutes away from my house, so I’ve been going there since I was a kid. I feel fortunate to have knowledge of both centers because they require unique maintenance and offer customers different experiences.

Deer Park has a movie theater, which is unlike any other center. TangerClub members are offered a discounted movie package that includes two movie tickets and a food voucher. I think this definitely encourages more people to join TangerClub, especially with rising cost of movies these days! At our Riverhead center, customers can see all of the stores and park in front of the ones they want. Our Deer Park center requires customers to walk around the center more. Digital directories are featured at each of the entrances along with physical maps to help our shoppers navigate the center!
