Outlet Shopping in Memphis: Bargains Fit for a King

As home to the world's busiest cargo airport, we are a bit surprised that there isn't more in the way of outlet shopping in Memphis - but that doesn't mean outlet shopping doesn't exist in the Memphis metropolitan area.

Fall 2015 brought the addition of the Tanger Outlet Mall in Southaven, MS to the outlet shopping scene; with 70-ish stores and an open-air concept, it's become a destination for bargain hunters in the Mid-South.

With a small outlet mall featuring a couple of dozen shops just a short drive away in Tunica, MS and a Midtown Memphis manufacturer of hip home decor located near the University of Memphis, the options for outlet shopping are varied if not vast. East Memphians are fortunate to have a trifecta of shops, one next to the other, right on their doorstop, with the Pottery Barn / West Elm and Williams-Sonoma outlet offering the best deals in town on everything for the home, as well as great gifts.

Even Elvis is part of Memphis' outlet shopping scene, with a store not far from the singer's Graceland mansion dedicated to all thing King, as well as a variety of other rock 'n' roll themed merchandise.

While visitors to Memphis may have to work a bit harder to indulge their inner bargain hunter, searching out the outlets in town isn't really a chore. After all, the nature of true bargain hunting is all about the hunt - and then, of course, the kill - a true bargain at a low price.
