Shopping is a thrill - but acquiring creature comforts becomes slightly less fun when you realize how fast it all adds up. Thankfully, metro Phoenix is home to several good outlet malls and discount centers. Whether you're looking for high-end fashion or home decor, we've rounded up some choice shopping suggestions for the bargain hound inside you.
For upscale shopping that is still within reach, pay a visit to one of Phoenix's modern outlet malls. There is the Tanger Outlets mall, one of the city's newest outlet shopping destinations, which is located conveniently off the 101 Freeway in the West Valley. Here you'll find names like Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein and Michael Kors. Pretty much all the merchandise is in-season, making it a convenient spot to update your wardrobe.
Another solid option is in Chandler, just off Interstate 10, at the Phoenix Premium Outlets. Not only will you find boutiques dedicated to names like Coach, Armani, Michael Kors, DKNY, and Elie Tahari, but the outlet mall itself is also quite pretty. The open-air mall is ideal for strolling and sightseeing.
Arizona Mills in Tempe also offers some choice outlet shopping destinations. The mall is home to a Gap Outlet, Last Call Neiman Marcus, Oshkosh B' Gosh Outlet, Burlington Coat Factory, and Off 5th Saks Fifth Avenue Outlet, among others.
