A must for bargains. Designer brands at budget price. Good value and an old fashioned by gone customer service experience. Amazing little coffee shop with brilliant and various flavours, yummy. I had to buy another suit case for bargains!!

This place is a total dream if you have lots of hours and dollars to spend, and are keen to do some designer shopping. There were plenty of levels with a huge variety of items so I could've spent a lot longer in there - but what made me want to leave so quickly was the crowds and the rude... More

Lots of great bargains to be had here but it takes plenty of time and patience to find them. Allow yourself three to four hours & expect to queue for changing rooms. Take a break halfway through in the pleasant little cafe, where we spotted a couple of weary shoppers having a snooze on the easy chairs. We came away... More

It is like the best TJMAXX of your life on steroids, filled with all the nations and languages of Babel. Go after you have been well fed and watered as you will lose track of time in this wonder-filled bunker on 6 floors. The selection is extensive, the crush of humanity sometimes mind blowing, and the deals can be fantastic.... More

Shopped at the store whilst on a trip in New York. Found some great bargains 😄 staff were very friendly and helpful. Me and my partner spent a whole morning browsing here... It was quiet at 8am in the morning but started to fill up around 10.30am

Excellent value on designer goods but expect it to be busy. I bought a bag and it was 50% off normal price

If you can handle the crowds and the miserable staff you can find some great stuff. The staff are rude, loud and clearly don't give a damn about customers at all. The girls in the sunglass section acted like I was inconveniencing them by interrupting there conversation to ask to try on a pair of locked up glasses. The staff... More

This department store is a must for anyone hoping to pick up excellent merchandise at huge discounts. The selection is great and while it requires patience and time, you can find great deals. In particular I plan this stop for handbags, coats, watches and jeans. You can pick up a shopping cart on the way in and peruse each floor... More
