The outlets don't stand for poor quality goods
Unfortunately, a lot of people think that in the outlets are only second-hand goods, because outlets are often confused with second-hands. With an ugly, sometimes damaged, well-worn clothing that is totally out. But there is a substantial difference between second-hands and outlets…
Outlets have their origins in the 80s of last century in the USA and now can be found all over the world. In the outlets are designer goods at very pleasant and mostly much lower price than in the classical stores. The aim of the outlets is to sell out goods from warehouses that are unsellable in stores. It is often about clothes from previous collections, of which only disadvantage is just old age – it usually don't correspond with the latest fashion trends. However, the fine designer clothes at so affordable prices couldn't be found anywhere else than in the outlets.
Outlets don't focus only on clothing but also on electronics, perfumes, sporting goods, watches or seasonal goods.
