REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - The Tanger Outlet Midway Center is in the third month of a 7-month, $10 million renovation project.

According to Amy Norgate, who is the shopping center's general manager, a revitalization is needed after 19 years.

"It's going to be prettier and it's going to have some tower elements and some architectural features," she said. "And the color palette will be more in keeping with the coastal lifestyle here."

She also said a unique feature will be a raised pedestrian walkway across the parking lot. Kelsey Barry, an employee at Kate Spade, thinks that will bring more customers to the area.

"I think the crosswalk that they're making is going to be nice for people to walk safely through the parking lot, it's going to be a lot easier," she explained. "They also do need to renovate, it'll be nice to have a food place in here and for the outlets to look a little bit newer."

However, this project will still be under construction through the summer, which is the busy season for Rehoboth Beach. Shoppers, like Maryland-native Toni Robertson, are worried that being right off Route 1 will cause traffic issues.

"This is a main road, the construction here is going to be a hazard, a lot of traffic, so I think the summertime might be pushing it," she said. "It's going to back up especially when the weather breaks, absolutely all the beach traffic."

But Norgate said she is not worried about traffic, nor losing customers who might be less inclined to come in with the scaffolding up.

"Every effort's going to be made to make sure that the shoppers have the easiest time to come shopping here," she explained. "All of our stores will remain open during the renovation so our top priority is our shoppers and the ease and convenience of our shoppers having a good time here."

Norgate also said the scaffolding will go up in pieces, and is expected to be done by the end of the summer. She also said the Seaside and Bayside Rehoboth Tanger Outlets are likely to be renovated as well in the next few years.

    The 31 dogs rescued from a home in Seaford are on the mend, officials say.

    "After our team worked to shave them down, we saw what we expected: that they were severely emaciated," says Brandywine Valley SPCA Georgetown Campus Director Walter Fenstermacher. "But what we didn't expect was how warm their personalities were and how forthcoming they were and wanted to be pet and loved by our staff members."
