“Average outlet shops”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Just like any other outlet mall, know your prices. Sometimes they are more than you'd pay elsewhere. A lot of walking, the parking was horrible, like entering and exiting Disneyland. The Brighton shop had excellent sales going on.

“Fantastic bargains but poorly set out.”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

What can I say - 3 girls who love shopping at a giant factory outlet with lots of great bargains! My daughter had saved for 2 years so she could buy a pair of Jimmy Choos at the factory outlet. She managed to get her dream shoes at 65% off which was amazing. There were some really great bargains especially coming from Australia where a lot of the brand names are quite expensive. Many Guess, Nike, Levi, Disney and Juicy couture items were purchased at significant savings but we did go to the Las Vegas Premium Outlets afterwards and found they had better bargains overall.

The layout of the place is a little confusing and extremely spread out and the cobblestone paving really is not very good with the trolleys provided. It's probably a bit sexist but I honestly think that it was designed by a male - who else would put a massive factory outlet totally outdoors in a place where it snows and rains and where it would also be unbearable on a hot summer day. We went on a day where it rained on and off all day and by 3pm it was pouring which made shopping quite uncomfortable as the only undercover places where the food court and the actual shops. It meant we had to dash from shop to shop which wasn't particularly easy especially with the shopping trolley. Even when we went to line up for the bus on the way back to New York there wasn't much protection from the rain and as there were many people waiting for buses many of us got soaked waiting. A covered walkway would have made a big difference.

Next time I will also take my own suitcase there so all of our purchases can be locked in it and put under the bus. We had to put our bags in a couple of different places on the bus and when we got back to New York when everyone got up to get their items someone took a couple of our bags and we lost approx $250 worth of items.

The food hall is very basic and they could do with a nice cafe somewhere on the premises with food that isn't a food chain but since you're really here for the shopping it's not that important I guess.

Overall the bargains are extremely good and well worth the hour trip each way from New York but if you're going to Las Vegas I would save money to shop there as well!

“Is it worth the effort ????”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Firstly before you go visit the web site and join the VIP club. It does not cost you anything and gets you the coupon book free. When you get the the Port Authority bus station make sure when you ask for the tickets you say you don't need the discount tickets, this will reduce the cost a little. The trip takes about one hour and let's you see a little of the countryside both of the city. Be aware the outlets are all outside so if you go on a wet day, as we did, you will need an umbrella. The shops are all in similar wooden cabins and there is lots of extra building being constructed. Visit the information centre first for maps, coupons, etc. this is also the food hall. The prices are cheaper than the city but you have to take into account the cost of the bus and the fact that your case can only carry so much. The staff in the shops are very helpful and friendly but it is not in the same class as the malls in Florida for bargains. My experience was that Macy in NY had sales and with your 10% visitors discount they could give competitive pricing. Being outside it is not much benefit trying to escape NY and visit on a wet day. The cost of the bus reduces any gains in price reductions. So is it worth the effort probably not unless you have an empty case.

“Shopping at Outlets covering more area than a small town”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

It was well organized but a little confusing at times since all buildings look the same. The quality of goods in the outlets varied but was generally a little higher than out Premium Outlets I have visited. There is a phenomenon there that I haven`t seen elsewhere. People arrive from the city in fleets of buses and they shop in groups, pulling large suitcases. Courtesy and personal space are often absent. I did get some great Cole Haan shoes though.

“Put on your walking shoes...”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We drove ...parking was super easy. We got a spot in 2 minutes(on a Friday) . The area is currently under construction to build new shops . There are many places to check out like most outlet stores . We printed out several coupons beforehand online to save a couple of extra dollars. In every store we went in the staff was super friendly and happy.

The food court has usual fare ...good stuff but nothing mind blowing . There are many little snack places around and many restrooms and vending machines . I'd imagine it's not great on a yucky day ,but even then you can zip in and out of the shops .
