Pismo Beach Premium Outlets Review

You would think that with Pismo Beach being such a great vacation spot, that the outlet mall would be equally as impressive, but that it not the case with Pismo Beach Premium Outlets.

What is instantly not impressive is the sheer lack of outlet stores topped with a lack of "premium" outlet stores.

During my visit I counted 35 outlet stores, although more stores have opened up since then. At first glance, I figured I would be in and out of there within two hours max, but once I began shopping I remembered that nice things DO come in small packages.

The Good

An over-crowded, tightly spaced parking lot is a big turn off to me, which is not the case at Pismo Beach Premium Outlets. I was able to get a great parking spot which translates to me as-- not having to worry about lugging around a lot of packages-- since I could quickly return to my car to drop off bags if they became too heavy.

Also, I find shopping more pleasurable if I do not have to battle messy stores and crowded racks. The stores at the Pismo Beach outlet were collectively well merchandised, neat, clean and with the correct promotional signage on the racks.

Do you dislike crowds when you shop? If so, then you will appreciate the calmness at this outlet mall. There is no elbowing at the registers, no clawing at the merchandise, but rather just a normal  shopping pace. Also, the employees in the stores were very helpful and actually had time to switch out sizes for me when I was trying on clothes in the (very clean) fitting rooms.

Prices were typical of today's outlet malls. Some good, some not so good, but every store had clearance merchandise which is always my first preference when bargain hunting. I ended up with some great buys from Bass, Nike Factory Store, Skechers, Tommy Hilfiger and Van Heusen.

The Bad

As mentioned, the only problem shoppers will have with the outlet center is the lack of outlet stores. For outlet shoppers who prefer the mega outlet malls full of high-end merchandise to shop, this outlet will be a big disappointment.
