Snag Some Deals At Miami's 10 Best Outlet Shops

There are plenty of ways to do a little bargain shopping in Miami. You can opt for thrifting, which is great for some, but not for those who dislike the concept of second-hand clothes. You can scour the clearance racks at all your favorite department store. This can be effective, but still doesn't bring you the very best deals. And then, of course, you can go outlet shopping.

Miami's outlet scene isn't all that big, but we do have a few notable shops. There are two main outlet malls: the Dolphin Mall in Doral and the Florida Keys Outlet Marketplace in Florida City. 

You'll find some great deals at the shops in the popular Dolphin Mall, like at the LOFT Outlet, where women's wear can be found for work and play.

At the Florida City-based mall down south, you'll find places like Carter's and Coach–excellent for finding deals for mom and baby. Plus, there's rarely a crowd, even during the holidays.

We've also listed a few more off-the-beaten-path outlet shops that are found throughout the Magic City. If you're itching for some deals though, read on.


Ladies know the struggle of searching for properly-fitting undergarments. Sizes are often ambiguous from store to store. Bras will squeeze and pinch on some, or hang too loosely on others. Finding panties that are both pleasant to wear and look at can also at times be a challenge. Cue the Maidenform Outlet shop inside the Dolphin Mall, and prepare to feel some real excitement at the prospect of underwear shopping. Rather than paying premiums at other shops like Victoria's Secret, many local ladies opt to come here and enjoy deep discounts on well-made, and aesthetically pleasing bras, panties, and other lingerie.

There's something to be said about doing a little outlet shopping outside of an actual mall. Not having to worry about congested parking lots and long check-out lines is always a plus. And for those who are in need of a simple pair of sneakers without dealing with mall crowds, there's the SKECHERS Factory Outlet. This hidden gem in the heart of Kendall is home to dozens of pairs of discounted, comfortable footwear. Bring the whole family and find snazzy kicks for you and your little ones. And if you've got questions, there are always plenty of helpful and available staff ready to answer them all.

Many of us shop at Old Navy because they tend to have pretty great deals on casual wear. From t-shirts to flip-flops, you're always bound to find affordable, on-trend pieces at this popular retailer. But if you're looking to get even better deals, you want to check out the Old Navy Outlet located at the Intracoastal Mall in North Miami Beach. While the shop is definitely great for bargains, you don't have to worry about the experience being "cheaper" as the shop is clean and organized, with plenty of staff ready to help you find the right sizes for you. Stock up on jeans and basics for a capsule wardrobe or pop in for the occasional accessory. It's all here.


Everyone knows that the GAP is a great store for picking up lots of basics for your wardrobe. Jeans, slacks, button-downs, tees, sweaters, socks�they really are something of a one-stop shop. And the GAP Factory Outlet in the Kendall Village Center is no different. This particular outlet is right off Kendall Drive and because it's not actually inside of a mall, is relatively easy to get in and out of. You'll find all your favorite items here, and it seems that you usually end up walking out with coupons after every visit. Who doesn't love coupons? It's also conveniently located next to an Old Navy, and is surrounded by plenty of restaurants in case you get a little hungry after shopping.


Some of you might remember when the old Town & Country Mall was something of a deserted island. It was this quiet shopping plaza in the heart of Kendall that could barely attract business. Fortunately, it was revamped and now they've got more business than they have parking, and it's all thanks to a series of delicious restaurants, happening bars, and of course, shops like this wonderful Nine West Outlet. While most Nine West boutiques have a limited selection of footwear that will usually cost you well over $60, this outlet can supply you with three or four times the usual supply at a fraction of the cost. I'm talking patent leather heels, chic ballet flats, gorgeous summer sandals and more for $15 and $20. Plus, they've often got additional deals once you're inside. So if you fancy some new footwear, you should definitely pop in.

Classic looks for work and play can all be found at a bargain at the LOFT Outlet Store deep inside the Dolphin Mall. The Doral-based outlet shop is in an excellent location considering the multitude of offices that surround the neighborhood. The LOFT (that's short for the Ann Taylor Loft) prides itself in classic, feminine looks that people can wear year-round. Discover the latest trends, or sift through numerous racks of timeless pieces�there's plenty of both on sale here. Stop on by to pick up some chic outfits for your new job or your next luxury vacation. No matter what, you'll only find threads that will stay in style at this shop.

Sneakerheads need to listen up. If Nikes are your thing, you really want to check out the NIKE Factory Outlet just north of the Florida Keys. This spacious outlet shop is packed with wall-to-wall deals on a large variety of Nike shoes. Whether it's running shoes, basketball sneaks, a good new pair of trainers, or maybe just some casual sandals, you'll find them all here at well below-average prices. Seriously, you can get yourself a pair of brand new kicks for $20, $15, and even $10 if you look hard enough. They've also got numerous racks of athletic apparel including tank tops, tees, yoga pants, running shorts, and more.

Parents know that shopping for kids can get, well, expensive. Little ones sure are cute, but they also grow at a much faster rate than most of us can get raises. As such, it's vital to know which outlets give you the best deals for the best quality of clothing. Cue the Carter's Outlet shop in Florida City. This anchor shop on the south-end of the outlet mall features a wide variety of cute-as-a-button outfits that are ultra-comfy for your kiddo. On top of it being an outlet shop, it seems there's always additional sales going on throughout the store. And while it may be slightly on the snug side, there's rarely much of a line at the check-out so you're able to get in and out of the shop sans toddler tantrums.


Does the thought of a brand new designer handbag make your heart skip a beat? Do leather wristlets with brilliant patterns make you swoon? Then perhaps you're in need of a little trip to the Coach Outlet down south in the Florida City Outlet Marketplace. Why spend a fortune anywhere else when you can stock up on your favorite purses and clutches for a fraction of the cost? Bring coupons to add to your savings (which are generally 20% and up). And make sure to stop in during the holidays for extra special deals for the Coach-lover on your list.

For gents in search of quality, custom suits at spectacularly low prices, there's no better place in town than Men's Designers Outlet. This bright and airy shop located in Westchester boasts a large array of fashionable men's wear from suits to accessories perfect for any dressy occasion. They've got an incredible deal the features 3 Italian suits, 3 dress shirts, 3 ties, 3 hankies, and 3 pairs of socks for just $299. They've also got a serious collection of men's watches, and are an authorized dealer of Swiss-made Cuervos y Sobrinos watch company. But while folks love the deals, it seems most go to MDO for the unbelievable customer service.
