Good range of brands for a small outlet centre, not that different price wise from the regular shops in the main although if you have time there's a few bargains to be found. Parking is always a challenge, particularly at weekends!!

There is a reason the word "Premium" is in the name. What does it mean to you? Big names for not so "outlet" prices. But what is in a name is quality. Quality names at reasonable prices, that's what it means to me. Holiday shopping and tourist season means hard to find parking. HAPPY SHOPPING EVERYONE.

There is a reason why this place is packed during the holidays. We know folks who drive 100 miles just to shop here. Why? All of the upscale/status brands with a smattering of unique boutiques, often with prices that make this an outlet paradise. From Le Creuset to Dooney and Bourke to the Gap and Kate Spade, there are ample... More

Good selection of merchandise with quality products. We usually shop there for specific products, but it's also fun to browse.

This is actually an outdoor mall. There is really nothing "outlet" about it. Just mall stores, like Zumiez, Vans and Pac Sun.

Perfect to do a little Outlet shopping, not too busy. Open late so great option after day at LEGOLAND or the beach. Restaurants nearby too.

It is a normal outlet center. The amount of shops is not big, and the prices are not as low as I expected.

I went to this outlet mall for one specific purchase. It is an outdoor mall. It was a brilliantly sunny, warm day in January. Even though it was Sunday, I found a parking place and it wasn't too crowded. The store that I wanted was the Ralph Lauren Polo store. It is large. The salespeople were helpful. After that, I...

Lots of stores, decent weather, easy to find. I'm just not much of an outlet shopper. And because many fashions are seasonal, you may not always find what you want. I'm not saying 'don't go', it's just not for me.

Made a stop bought Coach item's at 50% to 80% off. Great place they even have a NIKE outlet, Kay's Jewelry, D&B, etc. Great prices. I highly recommend visiting and shopping can't loose, it's better then buying retail.
