Imagine TK Max selling US brands but ten times better and cheaper and you have Century21. They have so much for sale and the store is huge. You can shop for hours, they even have a restroom if your there long enough to need one. The brands are great, ones I can remember were Juicy Couture, Tommy Hilfiger, Guess, Armani, Ralph Lauren, Chloe, Stone Island, Lacoste, Nike, Levi's, there are so many! They have a shoe store downstairs and sell kids stuff too. It is much cheaper than uptown and they have great sales. Once we picked up a stone island coat that was $1500 down to £250 and it is amazing! It is also opposite the WTC memorial site so can find it easily and its near to Wall Street if you fancy popping over there to see the stock exchange.

I'll start out by saying that shopping for clothing isn't my favorite thing to do; I'm a need-based shopper - not one to browse and wander. So, this store disappoints on many levels. Physically, it's a wreck. Logistically, the men's department is currently scattered across the store's various floors. But most importantly, the merchandise is worth exactly what it's priced at. Sure, there is discounted 'luxury label' merchandise, but anyone with a critical eye will realize that most of the stuff is "B-grade" items designed for outlet malls. I doubt much of this merchandise was ever retailed by a true luxury retailer.

You'll see a lot of label-conscious people filling up plastic baskets with piles of this off-kilter merchandise, congratulating themselves on their 'big scores'.

I'd rather wait for a decent sale at a top line retailer with a better environment and a higher quality merchandise.

Ventured into this store and managed to stay for a few hours.
What a great place, good bargains, and so much to choose between.
Managed to find some great things and left very happy indeed.

Crazy store, I only popped in for a pair of sunglasses and people were buying 6 or 7 pairs- yes they were a good price, but really!!!! Bargain hunters will love it, but you need time and patience here.

If you like designer clothes but don't care how you look this is the place for you. Theres a reason why they get the clothes in the first place and most of the time its because they are uggly or outdated... Will never ever go there again.
