  The proposed outlet mall for southwest Charlotte is on a fast track to get city and county approval for tax breaks and land-use changes.  The county commission has already approved a gift to the developers of up to $6 million. The city council is poised to do the same. WFAE's Julie Rose explains.

Tanger Factory Outlets and Simon Property Group are in a hurry to start attracting those zealous shoppers who drive for hours to hit the outlet mall.
