The World's Top Five Outlets (I) - Woodbury Common Premium Outlets
Among Outlets fans around the world, there are more women than men. They are keen to go shopping in high-end department stores, and also buy things from the airport duty-free shops. However, luxury goods are mainly bought during their overseas business trips or travel. Outlets fans will make a shopping plan before departure. After leaving the downtown area, they would go shopping in discount stores in characteristic towns and carefully select their own must-buys.
For many people, new luxury products are used to show their identity, and classic models that are off the shelves are the most practical in daily life. They value those first-line brand stores that are affordable. The real Outlets are places with 10%, 20%, and 30% discount. Today I will recommend Outlet fans a worthy place, which is Woodbury Common Premium Outlets, New York, USA.

Woodbury's location is Central Valley in New York State. As the name implies, it is located in a low valley. Here has a large area of American-style houses. Unlike most Outlets which are lack of top brands, Woodbury has gathered almost all top brands in the current market, such as Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Burberry, Versace, BV, and other brands. Although there is no shadow of LV, there is the only Chanel factory store in the world.
When you arrive in New York, if you don't arrange for yourself at least one day to go to Woodbury, then your trip is quite a failure. There are two ways to get to Woodbury. One is to take the shopping bus. The most frequented bus is at the 42nd Street Bus Terminal. Shoppers can take the Grey Line or Short Line/Coach USA buses. It takes about half an hour. The round-trip price is 42 dollars. The buses here are all operated by larger bus companies. Another advantage of riding their car is that you can get Woodbury's discount brochure, which contains discount cards of various brands, and you may get more discounts.
The second way is to rent a car. Renting a car in the United States is very convenient. The rent, insurance, and gas fee are about $100. The self-driving route is to take Highway 87 first, then turn to RT-17 from Exit 16.
Woodbury Common Premium Outlets is known as the largest shopping village in the United States, and it is really very large. For many shoppers, it is impossible to do it all at once. Even if you keep walking around, it takes seven or eight hours. If you want to buy something, unless you make a list in advance and you don't need to pick it out on the spot, you will take two or three days to shop.
You will not get lost if shopping by color
If you wander aimlessly after you enter Woodbury Common Premium Outlets, you will definitely get lost. It is recommended that you take a map at the Clock Tower Service Center at the entrance. And you will find the layout here which is quite logical. In order to make it easier for tourists to find their favorite stores, the Outlets managers divide the entire shopping village into five districts of different colors, including the purple Grapevine Court, red Red Apple Court, blue Bluebird Court, green Evergreen Court, and gold Marigold Court.
Each shopping area of different colors has a map and a numbering aid. The best shopping route is to divide the colors and go shopping one by one. There are various brands of fashion, shoes, cosmetics, jewelry, etc. in the shopping area of each color. Different colored shopping areas have corresponding colored parking lots. Visitors should remember the color zone where they parked. In addition, when shopping in outdoor Outlets, you should bring an umbrella with you to protect yourself from the rain.
Price temptation cannot be resisted
Like most foreign Outlets, the discount level in Woodbury Common Premium Outlets is very large. For example, you will see a pair of Levi's jeans for $19.9, Coach bags for less than $100, Gucci women's shoes with a 20% discount, Max Mara coats at half price, and so on. Seeing these attractive products, you may feel annoyed that your credit card limit is not high enough. Of course, you still need to choose carefully to find the style and model that really suits you.
Save time by eating hot dogs
There are kiosks in every corner of Woodbury Common Premium Outlets which provide light meals and drinks. And there is a large-scale Food Market in the center of the entire shopping village. Shopping is a race against time. You should be unwilling to let eating take too much time. The best way is to order a hot dog and a bottle of Coke in a snack kiosk nearby. Certainly, authentic American hot dogs are especially delicious.
