When plans were first announced to turn the old Palm Beach Mall property into a fashion outlet mall, the hopes were that it would bring in lots of business. 

The management of the Palm Beach Outlets says more than a million shoppers came through during the first month of business. 

The first phase of the outlets opened on Valentine's Day, with around a hundred stores, while some of those store owners tell the Palm Beach Post that they have already brought in sales numbers that beat six-month estimates. 

Phase two is set to open at the end of the year.
