Outlet Stores, Orlando
Outlet stores, espescially ones like Beales and TJ Maxx are fantastic when it comes to bargains. You have to wade through a lot of crap, but you can find some real gems, and a few of my purchases were as much as 95% off of the tag price!
The Premium centre has a lot of shops grouped that all sells clothes and apparel: Boss, Tommy Hilfiger, Levi's, Sunglass, Calvin Klein, ...
What to buy: If you're from Europe, you'll notice that prices are not to expensive. But, when you arrive here on a moment that the Euro is worth 1,3 times the dollar and when shops are offering you 40% discount, its SHOP TILL YOU DROP.
What to pay: As much as you like ;-) and more
really hugeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee .There are 3 sections
What to buy: almost everything you 're looking for ! !
What to pay: it depends on how much stuff do you want !! l spent apporx. 1000 $ .................l was broke ! ! :"( l o l
Okay, we know that, somehow Nike has a tight grip on Britain.
Visit "NIKE FACTORY", The Items here are in the region of 1/4 -1/2 the price of the retail in Britain!. Im not joking they are Very Cheap! compared to the stores in Britain.
If you are going to buy, BUY BIG! here.
I and my family went to a very large Nike Factory store in Kissimmee area of Orlando, it seems to be on a major road, scattered with Hotels and Motels.
What to buy: Trainers
Kits (Team Nike)
Basket Ball Shoes
Women Wear (Dont ask me there, I dont look into that stuff)
Literarly everything to do with sport is there, Buy, and Buy Big :).
What to pay: 1/4 - 1/2 the retail price back in Britain, THATS A BARGAIN!.
What makes this place so special is that it has a wide variety of things that you would never think you could find in one place.
What to buy: The best thing to shop for in Orlando is small things that would remind you of your vacation.
What to pay: What's even more great about this place is you can expect to spend whatever amout of money you like.
Orlando has some excellent outlets. Even though the boring stripmalls are almost unbearable, at least they provide you with a great opportunity to go bargain shopping.
What to buy: This particular mall features some of the following outlets: Puma, Adidas, Kenneth Cole, Levi's, Armani, Banana Republic, Guess, BCBG, etc etc.
I hate shopping but I honestly can't think of a better place than this mall.
This place is fantastic. For those UK travellers, if you have ever been to Cheshire Oaks in Ellesmere Port, then this is a similar concept, but on a much bigger scale. Basically it consists of a number of malls, air conditioned, which house individual shops, selling anything from sportswear, clothing, trainers, electrical goods, gifts, and so on, all at greatly reduced prices. (and for UK travellers that is seriously cheap!) There is also a great food court which does the best cinnamon buns I have ever tasted! (amongst other things).
What to buy: Bargains to look out for include:
Named trainers: a fraction of the UK prices. I bought Skechers for $25 (which were priced at £55 in the UK). We have also bought Reebok trainers for $10 before now!
Named clothing: eg. Guess T shirts for $10 each! Everything is so much cheaper than in UK, look for bargains in Gap, OshKosh kidswear, and Levi/ Tommy Hilfiger etc jeans are all far cheaper!
Gifts: There are some unique giftshops selling American folky stuff which is really cute and different...makes great souvenirs or presents. Also there is a Discount Disney outlet and a Universal Studios Store, which
is far cheaper than anything in the theme park areas!
Basically, make sure you have some space in your suitcase before you visit here!!!!!! (or buy another suitcase, they are probably much cheaper too!)
What to pay: Much less than in the UK for the equivalent item!
I especially liked Gap and Old navy when I visited Lake Buena Vista factory stores. I think Old Navy store I my fave!
I bought a pair of flip-flops for $3US. It was just amazing the bargain I found!
Gap is really good for t-shirts..as most of them at the time were $10. The colour choice is great too!
What to buy: T-shirts in Gap and Old navy!!
What to pay: In Gap and Old navy all together..around $100 or over
Disney Merchandise of all sorts that are 'over-runs', out of date etc. Also you can cool off like my Grand-Daughter here at The Premium Outlet Mall off south end of International Drive
What to buy: Clothes - T-Shirts/vests (for men)/Tops (for women)/Coats/Kids Clothes.
What to pay: At least half the original cost (and less)
Around South Orlando's International Drive, there are some amazing bargains to be had.
An attraction in its own right , Belz Factory
Outlet, 5401 W.Oakridge Road , houses 170 outlet stores selling discounted fashions, electronics and books.
This is the place to pick up Disney character T-shirts at prices around three-quarters less than a Disney property.
