    Woodbury Common Premium Outlets: Great bargains!

    by annase Updated Sep 1, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a massive 220 shops outlet village outside New York called Woodbury Common. It's about an hour and a half away by bus. During the coach trip you'll see a bit of different kind of US than just Manhattan. They have all the posh shops such as D&G, Gucci, Versace, Calvin Klein as well as loads of other 'normally priced' shops that sell only one brand such as Samsonite, Tumi, Lacoste, Gap and Timberland.

    What to buy: Clothes, shoes, luggage.

    What to pay: Less than you would pay in the city. For instance, Timbaland clothes and shoes in the Woodbury Common shop are about third of the price what they are in the UK. Unfortunately, they do not have very much items for women, only shoes, socks and a few belts. There is a lot of stuff for men though.

    Woodbury Common: Premier Discount Shopping Center ( 3 photos )

    by nicolaitan Updated Mar 27, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Woodbury Common located in Harriman NY some 35 miles north of New York City is the premier discount mall in the New York area. With over 220 stores, all the usual suspects - Levi, Bass, Polo, Coach, Nautica, Nike - are represented. But true upscale stores dominate the back row of stores including Donna Karan, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Zegna, Ferragamo, Tahari, von Furstenberg, and many others. This is a full day shopping extravaganza.

    ShortLine bus service offers hourly busses from Port Authority Terminal 2nd Floor at 41st St. and 8th Avenue, hourly on the 15 minutes with similar returns beginning at 0715. There is a food court with an assortment of fast food takeout places as well as some with tables - crowded, loud, with echoes, and expensive. For those with access to a car, the mall is entered directly from the exit ramp of Exit 16 on the NY Thruway. But for 5 extra minutes driving time and spectacular beauty in the Bear Mountain State Park e-mail me for simple directions for a stunning trip. With the car, there are two passable eateries within 1 mile north on State 32, an Italian restaurant and the venerable Bright Star Diner.

    What to buy: An educated consumer is the best customer - nowhere is that more true than Woodbury Common. In many of the less expensive outlets, the product available may or may not be current but may well be seconds or items made exclusively for discount malls and of lesser quality. At the extreme upscale stores, deliveries of product may be as infrequent as every 6 months and much of what is for sale is a year non-current. While discounts can be honestly stated at up to 60-70%, these prices are off original retail and may have been discounted significantly prior to be being brought to Woodbury. With infrequent deliveries, popular sizes may not be available in all items.

    On our recent trip, my wife had us in and out of Chanel in under 2 minutes - outdated, overpriced, limited selection, not such wonderful bargains. Next store - 70% off a current pocketbook selling for well over $1000 in New York City. And so on. One place that is generally a reliable source for good shoes and pocketbooks at reasonable prices is Todd's just around the corner from Gucci which is extremely variable. The Bass shoe store is sort of messy, but the prices are right and the styles rarely change. So caution and foreknowledge is the key to success here.

    Woodbury Common Premium Outlets: Luxury goods direct from factory

    by anders1975 Written Feb 1, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    200 shops or so in one area. It could be a mall, but without the building connecting all the shops. This is an oulet area where you find every brand at discounted prices. Shoes and shirts might be last season's hottest thing, but if you dig hard enough you'll find some pieces of gold...

    What to buy: Gucci, Nike, Adidas, Samsonite, Escada, Levis, Diesel, Aldo, Armani, Ralph Lauren - they're all here.

    What to pay: Depends off course on what you get. We had to buy two extra suitcases from Samsonite.

    Woobury Common in my opinion is "the place to shop". I have travelled around the world, and I have never seen a better collection of stores and prices to die for. You will have to see it if you visit NYC. Oh BTW, Woodbury Common is a collection of outlet shops. Check out their website:


    What to buy: They have everything.

  • Designer labels: Must visit - shopping experience

    by SMARTIN57 Written Jan 9, 2005

    About 1 hours drive from New York is Woodbury Common. A bus will take you from the Port Authority Bus station direct to this location and it is packed with bargains. I have visited New York on several occassions and have always returned to this Outlet heaven.

    by car:
    take the New York State Thruway (I-87) to Exit 16

    by bus:
    take the Gray Line bus from the Port Authority Bus Terminal at 42nd Street & 8th Avenue. The bus leaves at 8:30am, 9:45am, 11:15am, noon every day. It's about $34 round trip.

    What to buy: Designer clothes
    Over 220 designer stores populate this hamlet of shopping in upstate New York. Located about 1 hour from Manhattan, Woodbury Common is a shopaholic's dream - designer clothing at bargain prices.

    You'll find plenty of great deals here and not just on clothing, there's stores for home furnishing, jewelry, luggage, leather, gifts & specialty items as well. Stores include Adidas, Banana Republic Factory Store, Barneys New York Outlet, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Chanel, Coach, Dolce & Gabbana, Donna Karan, Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Max Mara, Neiman Marcus Last Call, Gap Outlet, Nike Factory Store, Off 5th - Saks Fifth Avenue Outlet, Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store, Puma, Tommy Hilfiger, Timberland, Versace, Williams Sonoma Outlet, Zegna

    If you don't have a car, don't worry! Buses head up here 4 times a day. Plus, show your bus ticket at the Main Tower Building and receive a coupon book for even more savings!

    What to pay: at leave 50 to 70% off the RRP

    My Lord,

    This is one place you have to go to if, like me you are a fashion addict. If you got to Port Authority buy a ticket for around $35 return to get there (its about an hour's journey).

    There are over 225 designer outlets selling class A fashion lines at equally class A prices, everything from Timberland to Versace, DKNY, any big designer is availble as too are household product retailers and its epicentre is home to various food outlets offering a well earned rest for the whole eight hours you might spend on your feet!!!

    You have to go!

    What to buy: Clothes, shoes, clothes, and clothes for all ages, male or female

    What to pay: 50 per cent and more discounts of normal high street prices, excellent value
