Fashion Outlet FAQ
Will they have what I want? Outlet shopping is hit and miss. You could be very lucky, you might not find a thing to buy, you might find something you'd never thought of. Nothing is certain. Even the staff at the outlet cannot be sure from day to day what stock they will have.
Can purchases be shipped home for me? Sending this type of fashion merchandise abroad would breach trade agreements and undercut the flagship stores. If you want outlet prices, you must make the effort to go to the outlet.
Will the staff at the outlets speak English? Yes, and they will also know international sizing.
Is this the real thing? Yes! These are genuine Gucci and Prada fashion items, not the trashy counterfeit items sold in other countries.
