Not really impressed with the outlets in Manchester. They are kind of pricey for us. They are spread out so walking around is not that easy, especially up hill. We prefer the outlets at Lake George, or Waterloo in NY.

I've been coming to Vermont regularly since I was a student back in the 80s at Middlebury College's Language Schools and love the state. Having said that, it must be said that Manchester is NOT your "quintessential Vermont town". The place is built around the outlet malls and what could be less bucolic that that? The center of town is... More

I stopped in a few of the stores at the outlets and was so impressed with the prices. I got some great deals from Talbot's and Clark's. I wish I had bought more but will absolutely remember this place the next time I'm in Manchester. .

We find a trip here is always worth the drive. The various outlets have MANY different stores to check out. Prices here DO tend to be higher than your average outlet, but there's a reason. The quality of merchandise is better than most outlets we've been to. Generally more "top shelf" items & less appearance of everything just being "picked... More

Dear Keith, Thank you for your very nice review of Manchester Designer Outlets. Although the building owner has no voice as to the prices of merchandise of each individual brand , we do believe that their prices are the same in all of their stores. However, as far as the overall shopping experience, we have always made quality a priority... More

Thank goodness for the Manchester Outlets! As a former NYC/NJ resident, I was spoiled by the variety and shopping options. Now living in the middle of NH, Manchester Outlets is the place to go when I want to elevate my wardrobe away from flannel. Love TSE! The cashmere is beautiful, quality is impeccable and the sales women are SO helpful.... More

My wife loves them, as she can walk to the outlets from our winter rental in Manchester Center. I think all "outlets" are the same, don't know if you are really getting a good deal. Spend all my time skiing, not shopping!

We have been to outlets all over the country, and these are my favorites! The selection of quality stores is terrific, and the area is great for walking. Some of the best are...Coach, Brooks Brothers, Ralph Lauren, Talbots, J. Crew and Pendleton! Have a great time getting some awesome deals!
