There were excellent bargains, particularly in women's clothes.

We regularly stop in Manchester, Vermont for shopping at the wide array of outlet stores. There are good buys year round.

It was a gorgeous April day in Manchester...the outlets are wide spread so wear walking shoes....some had been closed down, but most were still there. The bargains were so-so, you can find better deals with more stores in the Lake George area. A nice day overall, Manchester is quaint and beautiful!

Manchester has a wealth of shopping offerings, from outlets to the Northshire bookstore and stores headed east on Route 30. There are high end offerings, outfitters, woodworking shops, and much more.

I have been shopping at these outlets for many years. Despite the turnover in retailers, the shops have maintained the New England feel of the town. Not sure there are real "bargains" and it is always a surprise when I visit to see what has stayed and the new retailers. Miss a few of the stalwarts, but still a nice... More

Manchester is a very cute town, and in one way it's understandable that they didn't want a strip mall of designer outlets, like is usually the case. However, the outlets are scattered over a fairly broad area with no real "plan" or logic to the clustering of outlets. Add to this the fact that the terrain is not flat at... More

I have been stopping here for almost 20 years to shop and find it enjoyable. I'm not sure that the bargains are significant, but it is a lovely town with lovely outlets.

This reminds me so much of Bicester. They both have the same New England style of architecture, although Manchester is more spread out. The same designers have outlets in both and it's a fun way to spend a few hours with some amazing bargains.

After working at Crate & Barrel for over 10 years, I thought I'd gone to heaven to buy Marimeko at a discount. Look towards the dressing rooms for more heavily discounted clothing. After shopping at Eileen Fisher for over 20 years, the outlet store here didn't disappoint. I was fine walking around the town on a beautiful summer day, but... More

The shops are wonderful! All the big names are here, Loft, Michael Kors, Coach, Crabtree and Evelyn, Bass, Orvis(headquarters is here), Banana Republic, just to mention a few. If it's nice weather the walk from shop to shop is very nice. Not sure how it would be in winter. Stores are located on the Main Street but are spread out.... More
