“HUGE selection of stores, but not much cheaper than retail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2014

They have a variety of high end shops such as Gucci, Neiman Marcus, etc, as well as "regular" stores such as Body Shop, Charlotte Russe, Forever XXI, etc. I wasn't expecting the mall to be so large, but was so excited it was! As for the prices, I haven't noticed a drastic change from regular retail price, but it's still a great destination simply for the variety of different stores. I've already spent a lot of money and time at this outlet, but I'm already planning for my next shopping trip here!

“Super Great Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2014

I will start by saying that I was not interested in any mayor brands such as Gucci, Kenneth Cole, etc. for those you would probably go to the Premium Outlet Stores. However, I found great pricing in regular store items such as Old Navy, Justice, Corning Ware, Kirkland's etc. Got some super great pricing. I bought the coupon book for $5 and was able to recoup my spending plus more with the coupons besides the great prices. Will definitely go again.

“Prefer the Premium Outlet Stores”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

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.

“Loved It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We love visiting outlets because sometimes you can find some great bargains. They had some good stores - be sure to check their website for the stores and sales. We found some better prices at this Fossil vs. the premium outlet one. Wear some good walking shoes and take some water.

“It was ok..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

This "outlet" mall is laid out horrible. Yes, there are plenty of stores, but basically you park in the center and walk around an outer perimeter. In June, it's a little hot. Out of the number of stores we went into, we were actually only greeted in one. Be weary-- not all the stores are outlets, so you could be paying full price. We would probably skip this mall in the future because of the layout.
