Outlet Malls and Shops Around the St Petersburg/ Clearwater Area

Shopping may not be the first thing that comes to mind when visiting St Petersburg/Clearwater, but even on those sunny days, you may feel the need to go inside, escape the sun and browse for clothing, accessories and more.

Fortunately, there are many choices where you can “shop till you drop” in a host of outlet stores, which will save you some money along the way.

About 30 miles south of St Petersburg for instance, Ellenton Premium Outlets promise a wide range of shop “ops” in a beautifully manicured outdoor setting. Closer to “home,” you’ll enjoy HSN Retail Outlet, where you may just find that “treasure” you didn’t get around to purchasing when you saw it on TV.

Bealls Outlet – always a favorite – has branches throughout the area with bargains galore for the whole family – and special discounts on different days.

If you’re into shoes – and who isn’t – then be sure to visit DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse, conveniently located at Tyrone Square Mall.

No matter where you go, you’ll be happy with the discounted prices at any of these popular stops.
