Outlet mall sales

If you are a seasoned shopper, you already know that outlet mall shopping today is much different from warehouse outlet store shopping of yesteryear. Outlet stores, back in the day, were located in a less glamorous part of town and were typically large, mostly unattractive warehouses filled with defective or second-quality merchandise. Everything was sold at a discount. The less expensive the item, the more that was wrong with it.

While those types of warehouse operations still exist, outlet malls have all but replaced them. Outlet malls look like normal retail malls but are not quite as upscale. They have fewer amenities, are typically built with outside access to all of the stores, and rarely offer movies or standalone restaurants.

Outlet malls do offer a more modern look than a warehouse outlet, many stores and even new merchandise. Off-season, seconds or slightly-defective items are still a draw, but in many cases, brand new merchandise is also available. However, it’s often of lower quality than similar items found in regular retail stores. Since everything isn’t a bargain, finding a deal in the newer outlet malls requires a little work. Here are seven tips for finding the best deals on outlet mall items.

Know When a Bargain Is a Bargain
Although the sign says 65% off the retail price, it is likely that you would have never paid the retail price anyway. However, you would not know that unless you visit the decked out store in the swanky mall first. Don’t have time to go the mall? Smartphone apps like RedLaser or ShopSavvy allow you to compare prices online. The only way to know if it is actually a good deal is to compare prices.

Find out If It Was Made for the Outlet
According to SmartMoney, 82% of all products sold in an outlet store are made to be sold there. This means that the items are new but possibly of lower quality than what you would find in the regular store. That may not be a problem, but keep in mind that if you are buying something that looks new and undamaged, the price is lower for a reason. If top-quality is important, you may want to keep looking.
