Oulet Stores most of the time are clustered together in outlet malls. These stores offer last season’s merchandise, over runs, returns and irregulars at discount prices. However, some manufacturers actually make "new" merchandise to be sold in the outlet stores. It is a great place to shop for teens to shop with your friends. Before you go the the outlet stores, shop the specialty stores and department stores to understand prices. Take note of prices and styles to make sure you are really getting a good bargain when you shop the outlet stores.
Sometimes a department store’s sale will be cheaper than an outlet store’s price. Examine the merchandise carefully before you buy. These stores are primarily located in outlet malls or areas in some towns that specialize in outlet shopping. They are generally close, but not in major cities since they do not want to pull customers from full price stores.
