Whenever we’re shopping for new products to make our lives better or hand out as gifts to friends, family, and people we love, we want to get the best prices possible. Even if you happen to have a lot of cash to burn, it always makes sense to find the most attractive deals and lowest prices in order to save up some of that cash for additional purchases in the future. The less you spend on one item, you the more you’ll have left to spend on other things you love. This is why outlet malls are so popular in the United States and abroad. CDC information for travelers. Hours/availability may have changed.

Outlet malls and stores work by allowing manufacturers and brands to offer their products directly to customers, without any retailers or third parties getting in the way. Normally, stock is sold to retailers at relatively low prices, and those retailers then boost the price of the products, resulting in the general public technically having to pay over the odds for the items they want.

With outlet malls, you can get the factory price, which is often way cheaper than the retail price, with differences of up to 75% in certain cases. Outlet malls offer major discounts and promotions, and some will even run VIP or special membership clubs for loyal customers and regular shoppers to save additional cash at the stores they use most often.
