At a Glance
What is it?
A mall filled with outlets from major retailers offering discounts on overstock, out of season, or slightly irregular merchandise.
Where is it?
A couple of miles south of Mandalay Bay.
What do they sell?
Compared to sister Las Vegas Premium Outlets North, which is crammed with outlets from high-end retailers, this mall is much more Average Joe. There are more than 140 stores such as Adidas, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Calvin Klein, Converse, DKNY, Element, Gap, Guess, Hanes, Hot Topic, Nike, Puma, Timberland, Wilsons Leather, OshKosh B’gosh, Famous Footwear, Skechers, Zales, Corningware Corelle Revere, Bose, and Toys “R” Us.
What are the prices like?
You can get some good discounts at these types of malls but don’t expect to be getting the latest fashions at bargain basement prices.
What should I be sure to check out?
Save a few bucks on Christmas presents and visit the Toys “R” Us outlet.
Why should I shop here?
Because the malls on The Strip are just too expensive.
What else do I need to know?
They have a carousel!
What’s the bottom line?
I prefer this one to the Premium Outlets North but that’s just a matter of taste. Both are good.
Unlike sister outlet center Las Vegas Premium Outlets North, which is packed with high-end retailers, the “South” version of the outlet mall is a little bit more representative of the kinds of stores you’ll find in your local mall. Gap, Guess, Famous Footwear, Ann Taylor, and Banana Republic are a few examples, only here they are outlet versions selling discounted merchandise that is overstock, out of season, or slightly irregular. Basically you pay less by buying things that are not “of the moment.”
The mall got an overhaul in 2011, at least to the outside of it, which made it look a lot more like its northern sibling. It’s all desert earth tones and palm trees, which is nice, I guess, but you’re not going to be spending a lot of time in the parking lot staring at the place presumably. Once you get inside, not a lot has changed, which is both good and bad. The good is that, also unlike the North outlets, this place is fully enclosed – ah blessed air conditioning. The bad news is that it feels a little dated and cramped in spots. The ceilings are low and the pathways are narrow at least compared to newer, more modern malls, so there can be a claustrophobia quotient at work here especially if there are a lot of people fighting for walking space.
And while you may not find thrift store level bargains here, you can get some good deals and will absolutely be paying less for similar merchandise than you will in the regular versions of these stores.
If you need a break from shopping – or need something to make the kids stop whining – they have a giant indoor carousel that is worth a spin or two.
