The set up was very nice. Shoe stores in one section, purses in another, clothes in another, kids in another, and food in another. I feel like it could use some more variety with clothing shops, as there are very many pricey clothing stores it's hard to really buy anything. I purchased a Dooney & Bourke purse and some Puma...

This is a good mall for Kate Spade, Coach, Fossil & Cole Haan. Easy to run in and out. There's also a Crate & Barrel store. We recently only spent 20 minutes & managed to get shoes & new cell phone cover at Kate spade.

Lots of shops to choose from, something for everyone in the family. And lots of food options for when you get hungry. Make sure you go to centre management and get your coupon codes to get extra bargains.

This is not a huge outlet mall but has a fair selection of stores and a small number of eateries. The public transport - buses - to the mall are very few and far between. We got some good deals. Think it is sale time anyway, so few extra discounts

I shop here all the time when in San Diego. My cousins from Canada love this place. If one store is having a special, usually all the stores as in a three item deal for price of two. Plus there are entertainment options for kids. Small train, water fountains, rides and Christmas with Santa is great.

Right off the 5 Freeway, but not a very exciting assortment of stores. A few premium outlets worth the stop: Kate Spade, Joe's, Crate & Barrel, Barney's, MKors, Theory...and of course the Disney Store! The parking was easy as it was a weekday but on the weekends it can be brutal. There is a EV charging station in the back... More

We had to go to Wilsons leather because we had seen suitcases that we needed to get our extra luggage home. We ended up with three cases instead of two because of the price and I bought a new leather jacket for less than $70. If you have not gone into a Wilsons Leather store at any of the outlet... More

Another outlet mall. I'm not sure why it's "premium" as there aren't any premium stores. I was looking forward to Crate and Barrel but they didn't have anything worth buying. My husband loves Asics shoes so he'll return.

Premium Outlet is the way to go. Our local Carlsbad mall is a disappointment. But, the Premium Outlet is well thought out map of great stores. You are sure to find your heart's desire. I am there most often for my son's shoes as he wears them out fast. Target will just not do. Outlet mall has my husband's favorite... More
