I think outlet shops have run their course. The stores here are just like you might find at any mall. There are a lot of advertised sales, but even at these sale prices, it doesn't seem that there are many deals to be had.

I live in Smithfield, so the Outlet Center is a frequent shopping place for me. Lots of variety and lots of well known outlets. Good values to be had here. Sometimes it's the only place to find a rare item. If you're a senior, stop by the office for a discount coupon book.

The mall has every store around. Good holiday shopping. There is a more upscale mall just on adjacent to it. DeWayne s is a fun store. Right off 95. Plenty of restaurants nearby.

Popcorn Haven was the best part of my entire day of shopping!! The owner, Robert was super funny and awesome. And the popcorn was unlike any popcorn i have ever tasteted. Love it!! I also visited a number of stores and experienced good customer service. It's missing some stores that I enjoy, but overall a great place!

The outlet is a fun place to shop, but the stores are constantly changing. Le Gourmet Chef, Harrys and Davids are 2 I wish were still there.

We always stop to do the Yankee Candle store, shoe shops and handbags stores. The new tool store on the south end is my favorite now since Pepperidge farms closed. Stops in and take a Break from the road.

I truly enjoy browsing at the outlets but I must admit that the LONG walk can be quite a task to get back to your vehicle. Plenty of parking but the lay out of the stores can become tiring IF you plan on visiting them all. Nothing is condensed. Always have plenty of helpful staff willing to accomodate our needs... More

I have to admit that I don't care much for Outlet shopping. However, I have been to some outlets that have a much better layout for walking and shopping. This one does not. You literally have to either move your car as you meander further through the stores, or you have to be willing to walk back to your car... More
