There are TWO sides to the outlet mall in San Marcos, one side is high end which is the Premium Outlet Mall for example ranging from Neiman Marcus, Prada, Tumi, Lululemon, Pottery Barn, etc. The other side which is the TANGER outlets stores such as Levi, Tommy Hilfiger, Old Navy, Coldwater Creek, Reebok, Banana Republic, Nautica, Kenneth Cole, etc. It is a large center, all strip mall set up on both sides, it just depends on what you are looking for and your price point as to which "outlet" mall you shop. Like any outlet mall sometimes you get a great deal, other times you don't find anything worth purchasing. I can say we almost always shop at the Premium Outlet Stores, not the Tanger Outlet Stores side.
