THIS IS NOT FACTORY STORE! The prices are way too high compared to Vero beach outlet. Not enough place to walk and you get the shop'doors in your face as you walk. It is ridiculous. If you want to spend more money then your regular mall, go there. Otherwise, stay away and keep your money.

Spent an excellent day shopping. Great deals to be had in most stores. Fantastic selection of merchandise.

Tips:
- Get there early for parking.
- Check out whether or not they are giving out additional coupons before paying - places like Coach often give out coupons with additional savings.

I echo the comments by other reviewers - there is a poor selection of places to eat. If heading that way, I recommend stopping in St. Petersburg for a fish sandwich on a lovely patio.

Lots of very nice factory stores, really off the beaten path, could use better food selections.

We've shopped here Thanksgiving @ midnight for the last three years. We drive 2 1/2 hours to get here. Up until this year they had a lot of different promotions, little free gifts and a general feeling of fun and excitement with the shops opening promptly at 12:00. This year no hoopla, stores were opening much earlier and all at different times (even though advertized for midnight). None of the stores seemed to have any real door busters. It even appeared that some had no specials at all for this - the biggest of shopping days. Even so, there was no parking to be had - understandably tight for Black Friday, but no overflow areas to be found. I went out to the car for a jacket and had cars following me like sharks ready to pounce for a possible spot. Next year we'll try some place different. Still the best, if not the only outlet shopping in this part of the state.

Decided to go there last minute, but ohhh what a decision. We walked the entire and purchased lots of cloths and shoes. All stores had great specials and lots gave extra coupon for after the holidays. Best deals!

Love Saks Off 5th for Christmas Dress :) Also the layout was very nice. Not too big to get lost in, which was nice! Will go back as it's not far from Clearwater. It's really all you need if you're just popping in to get a few deals or do a little pre-Christmas shopping!
