We went to the annual sale for Columbus Day Weekend at Manchester VT Outlets - Love the one at Orvis - it used to be bigger and better under the tent - sales are still good and I got some stuff - the other outlets in Manchester have sales as well - it is such a nice little town -... More

I know that they are what Manchester likes to promote, but I can get this stuff at any large city in the US with a good sized mall. I came to small town USA for more local things. They were there if you looked around.

It was nice to have some outlets nearby for shopping. We figured there wasn't much else to do on a rainy day. The majority of the stores were very expensive. Would be nice to bring in some more middle class shopping venues. I enjoyed the store that sold Vermont items and also got great deals at GH Bass as well.

Definitely hadn't expected to find an Outlet Center in downtown Manchester. Unfortunately, there isn't a wide selection of stores, they were pretty much empty at mid-day and close late afternoon. We have an outlet center near us & can do much better there.

Very disappointed. Many stores were empty. They definitely need to bring in some new stores that will draw middle class incomes. High end designer stores are nice but that is all there is now. I would not recommend. There are many other outlet centers that have more diversity.

Manchester Center Vt is located in Southern Vermont and is beautiful little village surrounded by mountains and great scenery. Here we visited the many stores of the Manchester Designer Outlets. The outlets are quite different from outdoor mall or plaza style outlets, but instead are individual and separate buildings that blend into the village itself. All the buildings are architecturally... More

Con: This place is sooooo spread out, that we had to drive from "clump" of stores to "clump". Pro: We found great deals but only in certain stores; know your prices! If we were in the area again, we would return for sure!

Manchester Designer Outlets is spread over the downtown section of Manchester just off rt. 7. Several stores to chose from with outstanding scenic area. There's an Orvis outlet too for you fishermen. A little of everything for all shoppers. Plan on walking a lot. Several food establishments in the area. Just a short drive from Bennington Vt.

The last time we visited the Manchester outlets, Ellen Tracy, Peruvian Connection, and Baccarat were there. Not any more. However, the Eileen Fisher outlet was a standout especially for the fantastic sales lady (she used to be a manager in another type of store) who discerned my interests, put me in a dressing room, and proceeded to bring me items...
