“Bring your walking shoes - and a heavy coat”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The Waterloo Premium Outlets provide access to a very wide selection of retailers and the prices, indeed, generally are good. But the cost savings seem comparable to those available at most outlet malls across the country. The arrangement of the stores follows a "strip mall" design, meaning access to nearly every store front is from a walkway that is outdoors. So if you plan to shop the mall in winter, then wear a heavy coat, and because the mall is BIG as well as outdoors, wear comfortable shoes. Oh, and bring the van (or SUV) and leave the sedan at home!

“The BEST Outlet Mall!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

This was a girls weekend away First weekend in December /2012 .(from Ontario Canada) .and this mall did not disappoint! I have been to outlets in Maine, Erie, (Grove city) Niagara Falls, Florida...and by far this one was THE BEST!!! The variety of stores and the deals were amazing!! My favourites were Nike, Puma, Columbia, Under Armour, and stride right. If your going during the winter season bundle up because you are walking outside a lot! The food court had a great Iittle Italian take out place called Villa fresh and they had awsome Calzones & free Wifi at the food court too. PLENTY of parking...and again I could not believe the deals...not at just a few of the stores but 90% of the stores we entered had great prices. If you are a CAA member visit guest services and show your card and you get a great little coupon book to save additional $$ at each store! We will definetly be back!!

“Great outlet mall”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Being from Canada we dont have this wide selection of outlet stores in Canada. This was one of the best I have been too! Premium outlets is a great place to go if you're looking for some good deals. We went in August on a rather hot day. There was not much shade and the bathroom lines were long but that is about it on the negative! Everything else about it was great

“Good shops, GREAT value”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

So much great savings were had during a two day shopping session there during the warmest veteran's day (2012) so nice being outside too - better than dark Destiny USA mall.

“Great for Shopping”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

At first the outlet mall is surrounded by fields so stay on the highway 90 or you will get lost.You have to be a good shopper and come prepared. Register for their vip coupon book on their website (which helps with bigger discounts at some of the stores). Then wear comfortable shoes and watch for their deals.
