Citadel Outlets

Los Angeles

By Suzanne O'Connor

I do like the Citadel Outlet Mall. I like the layout, food court and concierge.
But like every other outlet mall, the Citadel Outlets are now a mix of real genuine outlets mixed with “faux” factory outlets and retail stores with a sale section.

If you’re familiar with product and understand quality, you can still find plenty of good deals on authentic product at these malls. Most of the stores were a blend of a retail store and an outlet store, some more retail that outlet… and some more outlet than retail.

But there were some real Outlets with genuine items… not just special purchase product made especially for the “outlet”.

Genuine Outlets include:
-Vince Camuto Outlet Store- 30%-50% off.
-Guess by Marciano Outlet- 35%-70% off
-BCBG Max Azria-  30%-75% off
-Clark / Bostonian- 30%-50% off
-Toys R Us- 25%-50% off
-Nine West- 25%-75% off
-Max Studio-  20%-70% off
-Michael Kors… I think it is cause there has been a line to get in every time I’ve been to the mall. But I’m not sure.
-Designer Fragrance and Cosmetics- An Estee Lauder outlet you can find Lancome, Estee Lauder and others here at 15%-50% off.
-Bass- 20%-50% off.
-Corning Corell Revere- 20%-50%

The biggest group was the blended stores. These stores did have some genuine product well discounted.  But they also had a good amount of “Special Purchase Product” and retail product in the mix. The mix varies from store to store.

Blended Stores Included:
Juicy Couture, Banana Republic, Steve Madden, Stride Rite, Gymboree, Ann Taylor, Bill a Bong, Vans, Calvin Klein, Disney, Coach, Maidenform, Ecko, Gap, Justice, Volcum, Skechers, Quicksilver, Samsonite, Converse, Columbia, Guess Accessories, Kenneth Cole, Levis, American Eagle, Wilson’s Leather, BCBGirls, O’Neill, True Religion, Tommy Hilfiger

Then there were the faux outlets that were NOT outlets at all:
Claire’s, Lucky Brand, Charlotte Russe, Pac Sun, H & M, Old Navy, Body Jewelry, Tilly’s

Yes there are some really good deals here. I didn’t make it into every store, but you get the idea. You just have to be well educated, read the tags carefully and hunt… and you can score a bargain!
