“Both are great packages for anyone who likes to shop, or for anyone who simply likes to make their dollars go very far when shopping,” said Mark Schwantner, general manager of The Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village. “These two packages provide a great option to choose which outlet mall works best for you, or you can take advantage of one package one night, and the other package another night, to truly stretch your shopping dollars.”

Taking advantage of the package will enable you to experience the newly renovated Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village, which completed an impressive $10 million property-wide renovation in July 2008.
