This is an unenclosed outlet mall which is much bigger than the outlets near me in PA so I was very happy. We drove around first to see what was there then parked in various areas to shop. Easy to find restrooms and vending machines.

We went after Easter weekend and found some nice deals. However, some items were similarly priced to regular retail stores. The stores are spread out so look at options before deciding where to park. Some stores employees were nice and friendly, while others acted like we were disturbing them as we tried to shop. Vending machines and restrooms are scattered... More

It's a great place to stretch your legs on that long trip on I-95. Stores are the usual, with the addition of Carolina Pottery. Huge selection of cushions for outdoors--patio, etc. Lots of artificial flowers, kitchen items, beach decorations. Nothing is close, so walk the full semi-circle or drive to the stores you like. We ate at Smithfields Chicken and... More

Surprised to find many of the same stores as the Tanger Group along with some other choices. The Carolina Pottery is huge and a good stop for interior design options. The outlets have many food, hotel, and gas options to choose, too.

The outlet featured a lot of the same stores you usually find at similar facilities. The pricing was good and it offered a good chance to stretch our legs after a long day of driving.

Very large outlet mall. Extremely crowded on the weekend but it's that time of year. Had almost every store my wife wanted with the exception of the major purse manufacturers. Great for clothes and shoes.

I'll start my review with the caveat that outlet stores are not the same quality as their retail counterpart. That said, this is expansive collection of name-brand outlet stores. There are two entrances and I took the second one. It was only when I was departing that I realized that the first entrance allowed access to another array of stores.... More

It is a typical outlet mall. It is very easy to get into off of the interstate. They have most anything you would need. I always stop at the Harley Davidson shop. Many places to eat ring the area. There is also many hotels in the close by if you need to spend the night.

I really enjoy shopping at Carolina Premium Outlets. My favorite store is Wilson's leather, but honestly this place is just full of wonderful places to shop. It's conveniently located right off of I-95, so there's no "finding" it - it's just right there! Well, worth a stop.
