Here in the DFW area, shopping isn't just a hobby: it's a lifestyle. Many residents pride themselves on snagging good deals and hunting down seasonal sales, and there's no better way to do that than by visiting an outlet mall.
These four shopping centers provide the opportunity to shop until you drop without breaking the bank. Make a trip to the one that's closest to you and see what bargains you can find.
Allen Premium Outlets
Take one look at this mall's parking lot on a Saturday afternoon and you'll realize that it's the place to be if you're a savvy shopper. The outdoor center features nearly a hundred different stores, including your favorites like Michael Kors, Nike Factory Store, The North Face Outlet and so many more. You can easily save 25 to 65 percent on designer and name brands, and with so many shops to choose from, there's something for everyone in the family. Plus, the shopping center is adding even more stores you'll want to visit, like Bath and Body Works and Armani Outlet. Keep your eye on this collection of outlets because things are only getting better.
Tanger Outlets Fort Worth
If you're looking for unmatched savings in the Fort Worth area, there's really nowhere better than the Tanger Outlets. You'll find a variety of brand-name and designer stores, all of which feature incredible savings. Hop from children's stores like Carters and Gap to trendier joints like H&M or Fossil. There are more than 70 different stores present, so you can truly spend an entire day hunting down deals. An added bonus: the Tanger Outlets have only been open since October of last year, so they're usually not as crowded as some other discount malls.
Grand Prairie Premium Outlets
This shopping center is very similar to the Allen Premium Outlets, but it does feature some different stores that are totally worth checking out. Meander through the various clothing stores like Lucky Brand Jeans and Columbia, then spend some time perusing the other kinds of sales at the outlets. Surprise someone with an excellent, sparkly deal from Jared Vault or stock up on delicious chocolates from Lindt. Whether you're looking for food, housewares, clothing or shoes, you can find the prices you're looking for at this bargain center in Grand Prairie.
Grapevine Mills Mall
Although Grapevine Mills is not explicitly an outlet shopping center, it does feature 84 outlet stores that are packed with low prices and seasonal sales. Not only are there great stores for mom and dad to scavenge in, but there are also fun activities for the kids like Legoland & Sea Life Aquarium. Bring the whole family along for some diverse shopping and memorable fun. Since the 1,600,000 square foot center is entirely indoors and air-conditioned, you walk around the mall without sweating in the Texas heat.
