My friend and I have been going to the Lancaster outlets for years and we always visit both Rockvale and Tanger. The Rockvale Outlets are okay, but frankly, could use an overhaul. Every year there seem to be more and more empty storefronts and many of the stores aren't ones that draw us in - lots of stores geared toward... More

As other reviewers indicated, there are a number of empty storefronts and you need to know your prices. Some "bargains" I could get at a better price in retail stores. If you are open to what you may find, it is nice to mosey in the shops. If you have outlets closer to you, it is not worth the journey... More

I've been here many times over the years and always leave with something wonderful. As with any outlets, you need to know your prices to know when you're getting a bargain or being overcharged. If you like a lot of variety in shopping, this place is for you.

It seem like 25-30% of the stores were empty this fall. Some of the selection we used to find there is missing. However, my wife tried to spend enough at the other stores to make up for the missing stores. We ended up spending more time at the Tanagers outlets.

My friends and I visit there every spring and fall. We stay at the Holiday Inn which is at the Outlets which makes it very handy. We always find some good bargains. I love Vanity Fair, QVC, Ten Thousand Villages, and just walking around to see what good deals I can find. If you are a true shopper it is... More

My husband and I visited the Tanger outlets a couple of weeks ago and got great bargains. On the way home we passed Rockvale and noticed it was much larger than Tanger and decided that we should give it a try on our next visit to Lancaster. It seems that many of the stores are not actually outlets and you... More

I usually hate going to outlet stores but I have to say between the good selection of stores and the beautiful day I really had a good time.

This place is huge and has many different types of stores. We are from Florida and we hit the summer clearance at the right time. We wear tee shirts year round and got some of the best end of season bargains at VF Outlet Clearance Center. Also Ten Thousand Villages was a wonderful experience. We found a most gorgeous beadspread,... More

Fairly typical of outlet shopping malls we have been to in other locations although I think perhaps prices in some stores have increased since our last visit here. We will stop by again during our next trip to this area.

Having lived in the area for over 20 years my wife and I have made many trips to the Rockvale outlets and many trips to the Reading China and Glass store there. There is a Nissley Wine Shop in a corner of Reading China that we had never visited. After all, how good could the wine be? Gives the tourists... More
