WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - It's almost go-time at the Palm Beach Outlets where employees are putting on the finishing touches for the grand opening.

A few lucky shoppers will get a sneak peek Thursday night as part of a soft opening charity event.

Everything from washing the windows, to cleaning the lamp fixtures and even watering the plants -- that is the kind of thing going on nonstop at the outlet.

Outside, construction crews were testing the fire alarms and the phone systems. Inside, stores final shipments were being delivered just in time to put clothes out on shelves.

Employees were unpacking boxes and getting them out on the floor in these last hours. "They're finishing up on the visual merchandise, making sure the registers work, and our employees are being trained right now," said Carter's George Kingsmill. "We'll be ready to go for tonight [Thursday]. "

On the eve of the grand opening, thousands will have a chance to shop while supporting 20 South Florida charities. 

So far, 4,000 tickets have been sold raising $80,000 for 20 local charities. If you have a ticket, you can shop from 6 to 9 p.m. If you do not have a ticket, you can purchase one at the door for $20.
