In Manhattan there's Century 21, which is a discount department store:

Woodbury Common outlets are quite popular however they're not in Manhattan. You're looking at a 40min-1hr trip by bus each way so if you have minimal time in NYC, I wouldn't bother.

Almost everything is already much cheaper in the USA compared to Australia. Some department stores also give tourist discounts. I know Macy's does this - go to the info desk there with some tourist ID and you'll get a 10% discount card.

another optionif you want " outlet shopping " is Jersey Gardens in New Jersey ( a bit like our DFO centres ), only a 20 -30 min bus ride from the Port Authority building in Manhattan, about $12 return ticket , No sale tax on clothing and shoes in New Jersey , Basic big brands , Nike , Addidas , Timberland , Levis etc

I have found though the best shopping is in New York , Macys , Bloomies , and all the little individual shops we stumble over.

Hi there

I heard that Century 21 is like the American version of Dimmeys and Forges with really really old stock. Is this true and is it worth going to?

The merchandice found in Century 21 is a far better than what you ever see in Dimmeys , High end labels at 90 % off , however the presentation is a bit like Dimmeys in that you do have to " dig" through the racks to find your bargins, it is well worth the effort

I loved Woodbury Common, we were told by friends and family to go with an empty "wheely" suitcase on the bus there (pre-book tickets from Port Authority or online before you go, it's 1 hour drive away) and loads of people were loading empty cases on the bus but we decided not to do that which was a mistake. We didn't buy enough to fill a suitcase but having a suitcase would have made it much easier to carry around as the place is huge and we did buy quite a bit! I have family in Staten Island who also shop there so it was recommended by locals!

I was super overwhelmed being in C21. It would have been great if I was in a digging mood and searching for a bargain but I particularly would rather spend time sightseeing etc.. You'll spend hours and hours in Century 21.
