Sunshine State Shopping

Want a great place to shop with excellent prices, a plethora of stores, and tons of name brands? One of the best places in the sunny state of Florida is the Prime Outlets shopping center located in Ellenton. It is located just off of Interstate-75, and close to Bradenton, St. Pete, Tampa and Sarasota.

The entire shopping center houses over one hundred thirty stores and includes some of the biggest name brands: Polo Ralph Lauren, Saks Fifth Avenue, Coach, Stuart Weitzman, KB Toys, Aeropostale and many more. The shopping center is located outdoors, so you can get that great exercise you need. It is even covered along all the major walkways, so you can remain sheltered in the rain or shaded from the sun.

With exception to some of the more expensive stores, almost everything is priced cheap compared to normal malls; some of the stores even have wholesale prices. It is great for those back to school wardrobe visits, updating a personal wardrobe, or even picking up some much needed household items. My significant other enjoys visiting Kirkland’s, they sell excellent name brand decorative items for the house at pretty cheap prices.

The outlet is open Monday through Saturday 10am-9pm, and on Sunday 10am-7pm. It is closed, however, on all the major holidays. So, the next time you’re looking for something to do and the weather outside is beautiful, why not take a trip to the Ellenton shopping center with some friends and family?
