Huge range of stores, but not so many bargains as the outlets in Vegas!
It cost us 40 each to catch the Grayline Coach to the outlets from The Port Authority in NYC -not bad value considering it was an hour out of the city ( and 2 hrs to get back due to traffic ) but I think Century 21 offers better savings!
We came prepared to shop, but left with just a few items. This seems to reflect the fact that everything is so much more expensive here than on the West Coast.
Lots of designer stores ( Coach, Gucci etc ) but the only real non high-end bargains for Australians are in the Levi store and Nike factory outlet, and these weren't nearly as good as the Vegas outlets at the same time last year!
For those men with big feet - forget it!! My husband is a size 12, and needs at least a 13 or 14 in US shoes - almost impossible to find ! ( and my step-son, who needs a US size 15 - forget it!! ).
It was kinda cool shopping in the snow though!
It's worth remembering that the outlets exist to try and get rid of all the stock from previous seasons or stuff that didn't sell well in the regular stores, and seem to cater for the tourist trade.
As with all shopping - do your research and check prices at home first. A discount of 10- 25% is hardly worth the effort!

I bought a new wardrobe at Jones of New York and the assistant was extremely helpful. She produced sizes that were likely to fit and blouses to go with trousers I had chosen and Trousers with tops I liked. Excellent service. I understand from my friend that Yankee Candles was not so good though but products at all outlets were very reasonable and a lot cheaper than the UK . Uggs were also superb value. Food outlets were rather rubbish, however, a bit like the rest of m New York. No wonder they are all so fat !!

Was there in February and had a good day out. Probably not the best time of year for the best bargains but we certainly managed to buy a few. Love the Jimmy Choo outlet and Saks 5th Ave for the best savings on high end designer goods.

I was in NY during February and I was deciding if I should come here, after reading mixed reviews on this place. Afterall, you will need to pay around US$40 for a return trip which takes about 1.5hrs one way. But I would not have regretted coming for shopping here!

It is a huge place, like Bicester Village in London. Lots of shops and discounts when i went there. On the day i went, Coach had very good deals. There was 50% off all items; this offer also applied to sale items that already had 30% off the price tag! The staff were also helpful and patient when i asked for new pieces for thrice. They also took out the calculator and showed me the final price i had to pay. But this excludes the sales tax that will come up in the bill at the counter when you make payment. Many other brands also had at least 30%-50% off the tagged price (before sales tax). Personally felt Burberry and a handful of other big brands did not have good offers.

The items may not be of the latest fashion, but if you have already set your mind to get some branded items (bags, clothes, accessories etc), you should head over to Woodbury! I thought it would look ridiculous to come here with a travel luggage where you can pull around as you shop. But when you start to buy more and more, the luggage is seriously your best friend!! Ladies may need quite a few hours to explore the entire place so my suggestion is to catch the earliest bus there and shop while there is lesser people. Try to mark on the map the main shops you wanna visit if you dont have alot of time. It really helps.

I visited Woodbury with my daughters on our Trip to NY, in Oct/Nov 2012, primarily due to a lot of the main attractions being out of action due to the problems caused by 'Sandy'.

Now, booking the coach etc was no problem although you have to allow plenty of time to ensure a) you get the outgoing bus at the time you want and b) more importantly, you're in the queue early enough for the ride back...allow at least 45 minutes so you don't have to wait for the next one!!

The layout of the stores is nice and everything was clean and tidy and yes, there are some good bargains to be had (although not as many as expected from previous experiences of outlet shopping) and you do get a big book of vouchers per/person to use as part of the bus tour visit, but when taken with the cost to get there would question whether you actually save a great deal especially if you're doing this trip on the spur of the moment, as we did.

When it comes to eating I would suggest avoiding the obvious lunch-time period as the restaurants get very busy, we got to them early which made for a much more relaxed time.

So, would I do this trip again...probably not. If, however, you plan to spend a lot of money then you can probably make the visit worthwhile, if using the bus tour method to get there...you'll need to be making a minimum of $30-$40 worth of saving, per person, to offset the travel costs.

One last thing...when we went the weather was fine and sunny, a little on the cold side due to the wind chill, so if the weather isn't great should you go be prepared as there is no cover when going from Store to Store!

All the best.
Paul
