well it would be rude not to reply

(not sure if it's meant for questions like this) i'm planning a trip to Bicester Village sometime this month - as it's a good hour away from me I'm wondering if it's really going to be worth the trip!

Thanks in advance x

I dont think its worth it really, when i went, there are lots of designer shops where you can get good savings of their stuff, but its still expensive. I think there may be a M&S there although i cant remember, but if so, the outlet M&S are usually quite good.

This is just my view, i went there with the intention of coming away with loads of cheap stuff, i didnt get anything. Other people may think differently, and I havent been for a long time so it may be different now

There isn't an M&S at Bicester, unfortunately

I did make fantastic savings when i purchased my Le Crueset there recently though

P.S. i'm on their mailing list (join via their website) and tend to visit when they send me a VIP discount voucher which gives extra money off at most stores, HTH.

If you are going to get some expensive stuff cheaper it is very good.

If your going to get some normal priced stuff cheaper it is probably not worth the fuel.

IE: I bought a 700 coat for 200 & well worth the money but I am sure if I searched elsewhere I could of got one just a good quality for 300-400. (we spent loads that day there). On the same day my wife bought a top for 30 reduced from 80 that she could of got elsewhere for 20 but it tore at the seams after a couple of wears.....

Bicester Village is just down the road from me, so don't have to worry about whether its worth travelling! Have to say, as a mere mortal (ie, local), I window shop a lot but rarely buy there, except at the Clarks Outlet. The rest is probably good if you're a 'label' person, but it's still pretty pricey, and far too rich for my blood! There is a Monsoon, Ugg outlet, and any number of 'designer ' posh shops, but not much of what I'd call 'normal' shops. Much prefer Swindon which seems to cater for a wider range of customers...

Thumbs up Aston Martin Outlet

Aston Martin have an outlet store (clothing and merchandise, not cars unfortunately!!) on ebay.

As I'm a new user, I can't post the direct link, but search for 'aston martin outlet ebay' on Google will give you the link.

Liz Earle has an outlet on ebay, its a few quid cheaper than the items on it website as there are imperfections on the packaging (eg misprints)

Junction 32 just off the M62 at Castleford/ Glasshoughton always worth a visit if you are in the area. The Freeport outlet at Hornsea is also good. We love a bargain in Yorkshire!

Default Apple Refurb Store

Apple has a UK outlet store, well technically a refurbished items store, with good pricing and warranty.

It's here:

I work for one of the companies that has a store at Bicester Village (as well as many other outlet villages in Europe).
I would agree that the prices are high for the "labels" but you do get the quality to go with it.
Additionally, with our store, you may get lucky and find an item that was in our Full Price stores a year ago and get it for a tenth of what it was selling for back then. There's nothing wrong with it, it just didn't sell out in Full Price and we still want to make some money on it.

Typically - jeans 12.50, t shirts 10.00, tops/blouses 10-12.50, cardis 12.50 (I think) I think the most expensive items are 12.50. they do coats and jackets, dresses too, not sure of their prices but great discount.
Most are overmakes or trial runs - you are very unlucky if you get something with a fault. Enjoy

I love Hornsea freeport, although it is small, my girls love the soft play area and I always visit the Thortons store, well it would be rude not to

I also like McArthur Glen near York, the next store is really good.

Just to clarify, I assume you mean a discussion about online outlet stores, not an online discussion about outlet stores?
