Waikele Premium Outlets: Largest Outlet Mall in Hawaii
My Favorite Fctory outlet ever is located near Honolulu at Waipahu, It has more than 50 50 outlets including Banana Republic, Barneys New York, Brooks Brothers, Michael Kors, Coach, Polo Ralph Lauren, Armani Exchange LeSportsac, Max Mara, Tommy Hilfiger, and more. Shoppers can ride a trolley car between the center’s two shopping complexes as the Oahu Trolley has stops at the Waikele Outlet Mall.
Opens:Mon-Sat 9am-9pm, Sun 10am-6pm
What to buy: Just say the word "Waikele" my friend adrian would say So many shops, so little time! There are two sections to this sprawling discount shopping mecca: the Waikele Premium Outlets, some 51 retailers offering designer and name-brand merchandise; and the Waikele Value Center across the street, with another 25 stores more practical than fashion-oriented (Eagle Hardware, Sports Authority, Borders). My personal Favorite is Buying Shoes at Bass at Buy One Take One, Shirts at Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauran plus Perfumes, Nautica.
What to pay: It pays to have a Kamaina (or a Hawaiian Local like my Friend) with you when you buy and since many hawaiians are of filipino ancestry (speak to them in Tagalog), I got lots of discounts!!! But other than that it is really cheaper to buy here in waikele since Hawaiian Sales tax is only 4% unlike 8.5 % in California and 9.5% in Washington State or 9.0% in New York!Related to:
