Outlet malls are this year’s hottest retail trend. Upscale outlet malls from coast to coast are drawing bigger crowds and generating more sales than they did during their original heyday in the 1980-90s. The appeal of outlet malls is obvious. Who wouldn’t want to scoop up top brand names at discounted prices? In some cities, extensive outlet malls have become tourist destinations that draw an international clientele.
Shoppers determined to cash in on the best deals often start their shopping sprees at luggage outlets where they buy an empty suitcase which they proceed to fill as they cruise the bargain racks of well-known brand-name fashion retailers. Conveniently located luxury vacation rentals provide ideal lodging, offering plenty of space to stash your purchases. At the end of the day, sip some wine, model your finds for your friends and plot your next foray to the outlet mall.
