Outlet malls consist of brand name discount stores often located outside
of city limits, but near vacation destination spots. This makes them
an ideal place for tourists and vacationing families to shop and save on a
variety of personal and household products. Individual stores in the
outlet malls sell clothing, sporting goods, electronics, footwear,
jewelry, and home goods, as well as many other brand name products at
deeply discounted prices. These items are surplus or slightly
irregular and come directly from the manufacturer. Out-of-town
locations help minimize the outlet mall's overhead costs. Outlet
store operators may also have contractual obligations to minimize
competition with manufacturers and many must be located at least twelve
miles outside of major cities.
Factory outlet malls originally developed as stores attached to a factory
or warehouse, and sold surplus stock at discounted prices. Today,
the typical factory outlet mall consists of many outlet stores grouped
together in a convenient location, conducive to leisurely shopping.
There are outlet malls in just about every state and adjacent to many
popular tourist destinations; as such, many people look forward to a day
trip to the outlets while on vacation. Be aware, however, that some
items sold at outlet stores are not bargains.
On OutletMalls.us, you will find a directory of selected factory outlet
malls for your shopping convenience. With outlet malls popping up
