140 stores, so where do you start? First, the parking spot... Since it was a weekend, you had to park further from the nicer stores or those you want to go to.
We got there at noon, so lunch at the food court was fine; it was huge, a few concessions to choose from, food's not bad... If you are the bbq type of guy, go to the Branding Iron BBQ. Nice serving size too.
There are about 140 stores here, and I don't want to discuss in details which store we went to or what we bought, as we were there for the afternoon with the family. Just park at the center and walk to where you want to go, or to the store that you need to purchase from.
The outlet stores have deals from 15% to as high as 80% if you are lucky. Try to get a map and see where the locations are so you can plan where you want to go - this is a huge outdoor outlet mall, so plan accordingly. I'm sure there will be a lot of stores going on sale this fourth of July, so you may want to visit that week.
