I remember my first trip to some outlet stores many years ago. I went in with high expectations for some “killer” deals. I was disappointed. Over the years I would say my experience at outlet stores has been a mixed bag. I have found some amazing deals. Others just mediocre. Some don’t really appear to be a deal at all.
A number of years ago a large group of outlet stores opened south of Portland. There are so many stores to choose from than the typical outlets. Some would call these “high end” outlet stores. It is nearly an hour away so I don’t get there often.
I try to hit the Cabi Outlet when they have their season end sales. I’ve walked out of that store with things for under $20 a piece. This summer I didn’t need a thing from Cabi, but was quite pleased with the Ann Taylor clearance rack.
Instead of all of the examples coming from me, it’s over to you. I would love to know what you think of outlet stores. Share your experiences. I believe it’s a topic almost everyone has an opinion on. Deal or no deal?
