MERRIMACK, NH (CBS) – Hundreds of jobs are up for grabs as a brand new, upscale outlet mall gets ready to open up in New Hampshire.

Friday there will be a huge job fair to fill positions at the Merrimack Premium Outlets. More than 100 stores are looking to hire 800 employees.

Puma, Coach, Timberland and Brooks Brothers are among the stores that will be looking to fill jobs ranging from part time to high-paying management positions.

The job fair will be held from 8am to 6pm at Nashua Community College. The mall officially opens June 14.

    Even most of the management positions are low paying, retail is lots of hours for not much money.

      These are Poverty jobs

        With this economy, at least its better than not having a job to begin with. (attempted to reply this and the system wouldn’t accept this…third try.)

  2. Steven says:

    This will be good for them since their economy down in that area has been in a drought for about a decade with a few big tech companies exiting from the town and Fidelity downsizing a few years back and some closure of area hotels as well.

    However, from watching the News This morning – the way they were encouraging the Mass people to come to the fair… please – just stay in your own state! We dont need you to take our jobs away in our state!

      Hmmmm, does that apply to the people who live in NH and come down to MA to work???

        Well at least us NHites pay a lot more into the Mass system than them coming up here to pay no income or sales tax. i thought of that after i submitted my comment.

        And the last paragraph I was referring to was the anchors’ chatter after they aired that package, it appeared they were encouraging their people to come to our state and potentially take our jobs. And Paula was clueless about the history of the outlets. It could had been built earlier (it had nothing to do with the economy), but the citizens and the Town of Merrimack made the project go out for several years with various delays.

    This looks exactly the same as the Wrentham ‘premium” outlets. They sell specially made lower quality items made just for the outlets, very few real bargains to be found along with a lot of junk.
