Which stores in New York are offering sales?

You’ll find deals in the most famous department stores including: Century 21 (no official reopening date yet), Burlington, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Nordstrom Rack, and more.
To find additional stores, don’t hesitate to check my section on New York Shopping Tips.
In addition, you can visit well-known outlet stores. The latest are a great way to find designer clothing at unbeatable prices all year long.
Choice of outlets
The closest one is Empire Outlets; however, it just opened in 2019 and there are not as many stores as the other two outlets.
You may prefer to take a trip to Woodbury Premium as an opportunity to get out of NYC on a bus and see unique landscapes beyond the city.
Finally, Jersey Garden is an indoor outlet mall, the ideal place to shop when it’s very cold (below zero) in winter or extremely hot in summer (90 or more). Unlike Woodbury, an outdoor mall might be a good option if the weather is pleasant.
Both are good and have similar stores, so it’s really up to you! 🙂
There is no doubt that you’ll find some great sales in these outlets. However, it’s worth the trip in terms of prices.
Of course, that is if you find items that you like and fits you 🙂
It’s worth a try!!!
