Regardless of what you're looking for, you're bound to come out with something at a great price. The store is always super busy with shippers looking for the best deals. Not a huge fan of discount stores as you usually have to really dig around to find something decent, however everything is relatively organized and the brands offered are very... More

If you are looking for a deal and that you have the patience to look for one, this is a good place for you! The service there might not bye the greatest that you will find but it is part of the deal.

I'm not usually one for stores like this but I love Century 21. There are plenty of bargains to be had. I spent about an hour just looking at the handbags alone. There is a huge selection of the largest designer bags at a lot less than you would pay anywhere else. This store is very similar to T.K.Maxx.

Huge place with thousands of cheap bargains to be snapped up. It's a bit like TK Maxx (for UK visitors) but much bigger than any TK Maxx I've ever been in. You must have some patience to search through the stuff but it is divided into sizes to make things easy. Staff are helpful & friendly and will measure you... More

Shopping in New York City is great....IF you can afford the prices! We were thrilled to stumble upon the best shopping value in NYC from what we have seen. So many great brands, SUCH good prices. Six floors! Just be prepared to spend a while in there because there is so much to look at.

Century 21 can look a bit daunting due to the size of the store and the haphazzard layout of the clearance racks. Standard racks are discounted but real bargains can be found if you're willing to trawl the clerance racks. Take your time be patient, know what you want and can save hundreds of dollars. The staff can bee a... More

Compared to a year ago, the choices got poorer (less European brands) and prices increased for most clothing. Obviously the US economy does better and they could afford less rebates. Still worth a few visits, if you need clothes, bags or sunglasses. And yes, the store is still chaotic, not well organized and crowded. Don't expect a lot of help... More

I wouldn't bother visiting for clothes, but you might get the odd bargain with perfume, and souvenirs are definitely cheaper than midtown shops. I found a lot of the staff lazy and most looked unhappy in their work. There was no price on one of my items and the sales person assumed I would travel up 3 floors to find... More
