Boise Factory Outlets Review

Boise Factory Outlets has unfortunately taken the direction of several regional outlet centers across the country. It seems plagued by multiple store closures and appears to currently have about an 80 percent rate of unoccupied retail space.

It advertised a food court on the outlet mall sign, but the only restaurants are (or were) Blimpies and a restaurant selling pizza slices.

I am not sure of the restaurants that are currently there.

Visitors looking for information by visiting the Boise Factory Outlets webpage might also be disappointed. It seems that the information has not been updated for a few years. The downloadable outlet directory shows stores that are no longer opened.

The Boise Factory Outlets Facebook page is active to a degree, with events and coupons posted for some of the stores. However, I did notice that questions from visitors are rarely answered.

Keeping all of that in mind, you may want to verify any information that you read below that  motivates you to go to the outlet center. Contact information for the center and for the outlet stores is listed below.

As bleak as this review may be, all news for Boise Factory Outlets is not bad news. During my visit the employees in the stores seemed upbeat, fully engaged with customers and the service was great.

 If the outlet could ever find interested tenants again and the customer service remained, it could be a great place to shop.
