Visiting and shopping at Factory Outlet always be my priority in my travelling itineraries. Recently I went to FoxTown Factory Stores in Mendirisio, Switzerland. From Bern I took SBB Train to Zurich about 1 hr 30 minutes journey, then change to another SBB Train from Zurich to Lugano/Medrisio about 2hrs 30 minutes journey. From inside the train I could see...

Compared to The Mall outlet near Florence. Foxtown is a waste of time. Not only are things more pricey,the refund is less and the base (300CHF vs €155)higher.

Lots of expensive shops under one roof. No real bargains and limited choice in the stores. Tourist trap. Visited once never to return. Manic car park.

Unless you take a tour from Milan, it is quite difficult to work out how to get here without a car. We wanted to stop here on route to Lake Como so we made the journey from Milan Garibaldi by train to Chiasso (where we were able to leave our luggage in a locker) and then caught bus 513 to... More

Admittedly, given the strong Swiss franc, Foxtown offers better values for Swiss shoppers. If your home currency is weak against the franc and you have to fairly low limits on what you can bring back without paying duty, your savings won't be that great. Also, you need to have a plan before you start shopping. Check in advance which brands... More

This is great if you like your branded fashion but not if you're an average high street shopper - at the end of the day, a discount on 'very expensive' still comes up as 'expensive'! ;-) We spent 3hrs browsing so there is plenty of choice there if you like the labels on offer. Wasn't very impressed with the food... More

It is a nice one - many famous brands - Lacoste, United Colours of Benetton, Nike, Escada, Salomon, Harmont Blaine, Geox, Ferrari etc.. An advantage is also that it is all indoor. A disadvantage - it has a big parking, but (typically Italian) there is no free place! I mean - there is, but it os hard to find one.... More

I have been to many outlet stores across the world, this includes Castel Romano in Rome, Waikile Premium Outlets in Hawaii, Gilroy Premium Outlets in California and Woodbury outlets in New York. So I can say something about price levels... The only stores which I can see some kind of real discounts in Foxtown is Gucci and Prada, all other... More

I'm not a great shopper, but this place has been promoted ever since it opened as well worth a visit, so I made the journey, but moved on to nearby Swiss attractions in the neighbourhood. Comparable with other vast malls, possibly good deals if you are a designer fan, but no big bargains that were obvious to me beyond what... More
