Default Factory Outlet Stores

WTF happened to these places
they used to be awesome places to get great deals at season end, and on overruns and items with minor defects (shoes with a bit of glue sticking out from the sole, or clothes with a random thread that is misknitted)
now they're just stores and they use the term factory outlet just to get people to come in
grr

I stopped buying clothes in the outlet stores. Mainly because half of the defective pants/shorts don't fit the waist correctly (irregular item). But then I learned their prices are about the same as the regular store in the mall.

plunk10 usually shops at Kohls anyways

The problem is that these stores often attract more trash than they do bargain shoppers. How does one differentiate between "trash" and "bargain shopper?"

Is your kid standing next to you? Bargain shopper.
Is your kid running down the next aisle spraying ice cream everywhere? Trash.

You decide you don't like the color of this shirt, do you put it back where you got it? Bargain shopper.
Drop it on the floor? Trash.

You go to the food court to eat? Bargain shopper.
You take a slice of pizza into the dressing room and then ask for an additional 50% off because the pants of a tomato stain? Trash.

Those trashy people make outlet stores gross and intollerable.

Ever go to Franklin Mills Mall outside Philly? Oof. It's one of the largest malls anywhere, and it's all outlet stores. The people who shop there are a spectacle.

no, but we've all been to the "Mills" malls. Same company, same "all outlet stores" setup, same mega-mall size. Around here we have Arundel Mills and Potomac Mills. Furthermore, I've even been to Grapevine Mills out near Dallas, TX.

I did get a pair of Isotoner gloves from the outlet at Hershey. I saved around $15 on the pair. And we bought some clothes for the kiddies from Carters's and OshGosh.

We hunt for bargains with dairy vengeance...

Kohls = standard business attire priced about 75% off of Hechts.

Furthermore, a friend's daughter won homecoming queen in a Kohl's dress. *emailing friend for pic*

edit: new thread about Kohl's

There's a good outlet stores somewhere in Iowa along I-80. Good Levi's store. Last summer when I was there, they had silver tab jeans for $10-$15.

The outlet stores in Loveland, CO bite ass.

the prime outlets in grove city pa don't seem to attract much in the way of trash, they also don't seem to attract bargain shoppers. it's all uppity rich people that just want all their designer stores in one gigantic complex.

if you've ever been there... get this, they're going to be doubleing it's size in the next couple years!

I worked a couple extra shifts at Arundel Mills when I was working with Old Navy last xmas season.

Holy S balls, never will I do that again. Literally as I'm folding a table women would tear it apart. Right in front of me. I would just stare back like wtf you've got to be kidding me.

I've been taking some edu courses at AACC @ Arundel Mills and that building is awesome. I actually look forward to going there even though it's 30 minutes away.

rarely is the hassle worth it, in my opinion.

the stores are overcrowded and full of returned, off-size, or ugly crap - that's why it's in the goddamn outlet.

since i wear popular sizes, there's nothing worth buying in my size. however, f i wore a men's small or XXXXL i'd be all about these places.

the stuff that IS in my size is usually hideous and in no way worth standing in a three-hour checkout line with the trash that was bussed in for a day of cheap shoppin'.
