Gone are the days when "outlet shopping" meant combing the dimly lit halls of a warehouse-like structure, replaced by a modern retail experience where bargain hunters go from store to store while enjoying a refreshing springtime breeze or the sight of a golden grove of trees in the fall.
But the real attraction at the Philadelphia Premium Outlets, as it has been since it opened on this former farmland in 2007, are the savings. Each day, the 150 retailers of the Philadelphia Premium Outlets offer 25-65 percent off designer name brands such as Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, BCBG Max Azria, Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein, Coach, Cole Haan, DKNY, Elie Tahari, Gap Outlet, Guess, J.Crew, Kate Spade, Last Call by Neiman Marcus, Michael Kors, Nike, Polo Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger.
The possibilities go beyond a refresh for your closet; LeCreuset, Restoration Hardware and Caphalon address your home needs. And a convenient food court can keep you fueled.
