I’m not a big fan of outlet shopping, mostly because the outlets aren’t what they used to be. Most outlet stores are just a store like any other, but there are a few exceptions. On the way home from celebrating Chanukah with my brother in Portland, and sneaking in a trip to Duckfat, we stopped at Kittery because the kids needed snow gear. On the way home we stopped at AJ’s just by chance when our babysitter, adopted older daughter/mother to my older daughter Jen searched “gluten free” on Yelp! It might have been the highlight of Kittery shopping.
I was able to get some great deals at the Hanna Andersson outlet, a few goodies at Coach (for myself and my girlfriends), and a top for Dan (future ironman) at Under Armour. All in all, it was pretty good but I still think no better than an after holiday sale. In any case, if you still need something, I highly recommend going to Hanna Andersson‘s website for their online sale.
May you enter the new year clothed, warm, and with a few extra pennies in your pocket.
