Outlet Mall in Mercedes, Texas

Outlet Mall in Mercedes, Texas

We went to visit the Premium Outlet Mall in Mercedes this morning. There were a lot of people there. Just from checking license plates in the parking lot, half or more of the shoppers are neighbors from the south. Parking is very limited. There is plenty of parking, but it's mostly taken.

If you like buying big brands like Liz Claiborne, Skechers, Fossil, and so on. then it's the perfect place for you. They weren't kidding when they named it a Premium Outlet.

Personally, we were disappointed. We expected a range of products. The most excitng place we visited was a kitchen store. The Disney Store at La Plaza Mall in McAllen is much better than the Outlet. I doubt very much that we'll go shopping at Mercedes again. We like to get as much for our money as possible. This is coming from a guy who bought 2 identical pairs of shoes on clearance for $3 each this summer. I bought 2 pairs of $10 clearance running shoes too. I got shirts for $1. If they had put in a book store, then MAYBE we could justify another trip there.

When we want discount, we are looking for deep discounts. These shops are SO Premium that even their sales are pricey for us. If you are a high-income type, I suppose you would enjoy shopping there.
