Retailing » 2,000 pay $50 to attend charity event the night before mall opens to public.

One-third of the mall’s tenant lineup is new to Utah or new to the Salt Lake City market, including jewelers Tiffany & Co. and Swarovski, luxury sportswear chain Michael Kors and high-end handbag purveyor Coach.

Plus, although Fashion Place in Murray has a Nordstrom, the one at City Creek will have a much different and distinctive merchandise mix, including two Gucci boutiques.

"There are a lot of things that are unique to this [City Creek Center] store," said John Bailey, a Nordstrom spokesman.

Although there has been speculation that the conservative LDS Church had some type of role in approving tenants in the mall, Taubman said that wasn’t the case. The absence of tenants such as Victoria’s Secret or Starbucks have nothing to do with the church, Taubman said, but rather the normal dynamics of filling a shopping mall.

On Wednesday, shoppers were generally impressed with the store lineup and believe it will be the start of something good for the capital city.

"It’s a step up," said Tammy Rindlisbacher, of Taylorsville. "People will be coming back to the city for this."
