Prime and Tanger Outlet: A paradise for bargain hunters
Chances are that shopping is the main reason you are in San Marcos! And shopping in San Marcos means the Prime or Tanger Outlet!!
Even open on Sunday, you have tens of different shops selling well known brand at prices I couldn't imagine!
I have been particularly surprised by the shoes price: about 50 bucks for a pair of good leather shoes, I would pay at least the double in Belgium!!!
What to buy: Mainly clothes and shoes
What to pay: Well, you know when you start spending money, you never know when you stop!!
Few example : 20$/jeans, 20$/belt , 20$/shirt

Tanger Outlet Centre
Tanger Outlet Centre and San Marcos Factory Shops – This is a huge factory outlet centre, the biggest in Texas. I have no idea how many shops are actually in this complex, but a good 150 stores I would think. The credit card could have a field day. Just an amazing place to stop enroute and just take a look at some of the well known names. Prices are very good, 20 – 70% off retail.
Tanger Outlet Center: GO SHOPPING!!!! Til you drop (and you will drop!)
EVERYTHING YOU COULD EVER WANT IS HERE....AND IT"S ON SALE!!!!!!!!!
Yes, over 100 brandname stores and another 100 in between. How do these sound?
Dooney and Bourke
The list goes on and on and on....
Definitely plan a weekend because it's hard to hit each store in one day. Your feet will kill you but it's all worth it. Great place to get some Christmas shopping done!
Monday - Saturday
9:00am - 9:00pm
Sunday 10:00am - 7:00pm
What to buy: Stop by Coach, Old Navy, Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, as many as you want!
I think Coach had the best sales, personally.
What to pay: You're going to be getting anywhere from a 15%-75% clearance in the outlet centers. If you're going for something more classy don't get your hopes up too high. If it's quality, you're still going to pay. However, you will be surprised at how low some places go!
