It comes as no surprise, then, that more and more shopping areas are springing up in the country's most popular vacation spots in response to consumer demand. The most prominent of these are outlet centers - shopping locations that offer factory-direct brand-name merchandise at savings of 20 to 50 percent everyday off full-retail prices.
In addition to their low prices, the outlet centers also offer the widest array and selection of merchandise which often includes items not available in regular retail stores and most provide guaranteed satisfaction. Smart vacation shoppers can get exceptional value for the dollar at outlet centers across the United States which feature over 1,000 name brands.
So, if you love to shop as much as admire breathtaking scenery, eat at great restaurants, take historic tours and visit fun theme parks, you might want to check out one of the nearly 380 outlet centers across the nation.
