Through the eyes of Joshua…
The downtown core is the place to shop if you want to keep up with new trends. Unfortunately, it's also the place to shop if you want to go bankrupt. However, there are other ways to shop for your favorite designer brands without exhausting your wallet. Outlet malls, often located closer to residential areas around the city limits, offer a variety of stores selling their products at more affordable prices.
You may not always be able to find the latest pair of jeans or designer shoes, but outlet malls are a great place to shop for out-of-season or excess stock at an affordable price. The savvy customer may also be able to find further deals through marked down sales or by using a coupon book. Typically, coupon books can be found at an information kiosk in the mall. While coupon books may need to be purchased (though they can sometimes be offered for free), for those expecting to make some major shopping purchases, the resulting savings will certainly be worth the cost.
Despite the fact that outlet malls are located outside of the downtown core, they are neither small nor lacking in variety. Beyond the designer clothing and shoe stores, you can also find confectioneries, kitchenware, and book shops, among a variety of other stores.
Nearly every major fashion brand will have a store at an outlet mall, ensuring that one is rarely disappointed when looking for their favorite brand. Outlet malls are a great place to carve out your style while ensuring your wallet feels full from all the savings!
