Are there seasons at Grove City Outlets PA

We are young seniors driving down to Florida in early May and by way of Grove City.

Our shopping principles look for the best discounts on household linens, dress ware for ourselves and grand children (under 4). Otherwise the wear and tear and overnight hotel costs are quite meaningless. The deals we are familair with are at the Premium Outlets in Niagara Falls NY; sometime good, sometimes not. Is Grove City any better? or more of the same?

Last May at the premium outlets in Orlando, we were with rare exceptions unimpressed with the available stock or the prices. We will be heading to the Atlantic coast and hopefully better chances to vist their outlets, assuming they are generous with their deals.No idea!

For now we have to decide whether Grove City is worth the overnigt stop around May 9 or 10

We have many Ontario, Canada guests stay with us while shopping at Grove City Premium Outlets. A majority of the guests are able to find excellent deals and tell us that the selection is unbelievable. Only on a few rare occasions do our guests tell us it was a bust - my guess is they are looking for very specific items. One of the great benefits of Pennsylvania is that there is no sales tax on clothing -- so, if from Ontario, not only are you saving from reduced prices, you are saving big on taxes (13% + 6%). For even more savings, you can pay to get a VIP Discount Card at the VisitMercerCounty Information Center which is located in the food court; however, even that is free if you look (or stay) at the right place. ;-)

Also, a word of caution. May is an extremely busy time around Grove City and most hotels/B&Bs get fully booked well in advance (we are booked 5 years in advance for several of the weekends in May). There are 2 colleges/universities nearby with 3 others on the out-skirts. May is when all their graduations are and when all the parents are coming from out of town to take their students home. Many shoppers that come in May without a hotel or B&B reservation are shocked to find they have to go 50 miles away to get a room.
