“The best outlet i have been to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

being originally from Dubai i wasnt expecting much from the designer outlet. as well i have visited one factory outlet in Toscana and one near by Venice. but Fox Town has significantly exceeded my expectations. amazing choice of all brands that i love. clothing collections were very recent and fashionalble. some shops were offering discounts on already discounted items. for example i bought beautiful stylish party/evening cocktail dress from Patrizia Pepe for 100 francs and the original price of the item was circa1200 francs. also loved Blumarine shop - amazing clothing for reasonable prices (60-70% discount) and Salvatore Ferragamo. Salvatore Ferragamo has a very big store in Fox Town - i am a tall girl and dont wear heels - i was soo happy to see many stylish balerinas and small heel work shoes. i bought 3 pairs each not more than 120 francs while i know that normal prices are always around 600-800. didnt eat, didnt drink - just shopped for entire day and wish i have dedicated at least 2 days. we were leaving 20 min away from the Fox Town, but the outlet is definetly worth coming to even if oyu are 1.5-2 hours away from it.

“love this shopping outlet!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

well, this is the one and only shopping outlet I have ever visited in Europe. But it certainly did not disappoint, you can find here all the important European household names you can ever imagine. Plus the location is very nice, scenic mountains all around you! A very pleasant shopping experience.

“160 branded stores under one roof”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Visiting and shopping at Factory Outlet always be my priority in my travelling itineraries. Recently I went to FoxTown Factory Stores in Mendirisio, Switzerland. From Bern I took SBB Train to Zurich about 1 hr 30 minutes journey, then change to another SBB Train from Zurich to Lugano/Medrisio about 2hrs 30 minutes journey. From inside the train I could see the FoxTown building at my right hand side , not too far from the Medrisio Train Station, just about 10 minutes walk. During my visit to the FoxTown FO, the weather not really good because it was raining for the whole day, luckily all the stores, restaurants and other facilities located under one roof, I felt very convenient and relax shopping in this type of FO. I spent about 5 hours but I never felt that long because I was so busy with my shopping activities. The price quite reasonable, less about 30-70% on certain items compare to outside price. I like the place and will come here again .

“Do your shopping in Italy please”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Compared to The Mall outlet near Florence. Foxtown is a waste of time. Not only are things more pricey,the refund is less and the base (300CHF vs €155)higher.

“Great shopping place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

During a recent visit to Lugano, visited Fox Town outlet in Mendrisio. Easy access with the train
and the new station especially for FoxTown.
Shopping large variety of outlets for every imaginable item one can think of. Service was very helpful in all shops.
Had Lunch a Chalet Suisse was great and friendly service.
Can recommend to anyone which finds themselves in this area to stock up on clothes at great bargain prices, do not expect this to be a quick shopping experience there are so many shops.
