Sometimes it is a good deal, sometimes it is not.
Just like everything else in life.
Designer outlets are a joke, waste of time and money; overpriced-discounted items of inferior quality (yes, an oxymoron, i know). The only outlets that are worth anything is: Bloomingdales Outlet Store, Bose, Oakley, Williams-Sanoma and Rockport .
Off price retailers really are the way to go if you are looking for high end designers at a discount price (Tj Maxx, Ross, Burlington, Marshalls, Stein Mart); they carry designer fashions that are actually for sale in retail outlets. Also, the internet is great place for savings as others have stated in this thread.
I used to stop when traveling but not anymore. Inferior product, made specifically to be sold at a "discount". No thanks! You get what you pay for.
