VISIT TO WOODBURY COMMON CHANGES STUDENTS' PERSPECTIVE OF FAMILIAR PLACE


Students in Mrs. White’s Travel & Hospitality class and in Ms. Cricchio’s Entrepreneurship class traveled to Central Valley’s Woodbury Common Premium Outlets in late September for a different look at a familiar shopping destination.  

 

In a conference room at the Common, General Manager David Mistretta welcomed MVHS students and spoke about the history of the complex, its daily operations, international clientele, and expansion plans.

 

Opened in 1985, and twice expanded, the Woodbury Common features 220 outlet stores and occupies upwards of 800,000 square feet. Considered one of world’s largest contiguous outlet centers, and roughly 50 miles from New York City, the Common is also a foreign tourist attraction.

 

During a question and answer period, Mr. Mistretta outlined career opportunities with Premium Outlets and described his own career path. The day’s learning experience and objectives also included a related work assignment. Students came away with new insights into this local and international business hub.
