Could an outlet mall be in the future for Appomattox?
Town leaders are looking at attracting a major retailer that caters to tourists, which could include a large outlet center.
A regional study recently looked at whether Appomattox could get the attention of a major developer.
The study concluded that it's possible, if Appomattox can market itself as part of a larger region that includes Lynchburg.
Consultants say the town should attract and build more hotels first, which could lure in a large development like an outlet mall later.
