i have been shopping at 'cent's' for some 12 years. it is gotten more expensive, i do not find there anymore the bargains i used search in bags, designer clothes or shoes ... Lately i was definitely turning to Loehmann's and Daffy's. Sadly they have closed (some say because designer clothes imported from Europe had become too expensive ?) Having... More

To find a good bargain you need to be prepared to spend a great deal of time looking through all the rubbish ... whist this may appeal to some people it doesn't to me. The shop is badly laid out and organised and could look so much more appealing

This shop had everything! My husband bought about 10 hilfiger wallets for $15 each! Large packs of men's undies for $20. There were so many clothes crammed in on the women's section that I got turned off! I couldn't find bags or shoes that I liked. But yes there are many bargains for those who have the time to look...

Come prepared to hunt if you want to find a bargain! They are here, but you do have to look hard among the tat. I find it fun and am very happy when I unearth a good deal but I know it's not to everyone's taste. My tip would be to go when it opens at 7.45am if you don't... More

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
