I feel like Cincinnati Premium Outlets... is a facade... An Outlet mall it is not... Ok maybe it is, but of only the most expensive brands around. I would easily make the trip up to Jeffersonville over this Monroe location 99% of the time. I think the cheapest store here is the Gap Outlet, which again is more in between outlet and retail. Ive worked for GAP Inc or 6 years in and out of college. The Monroe location is just about as expensive as the retail store I visited earlier that day in the Kenwood Mall. Granted Ill give it one more star for the fact that it has an Auntie Annes and the Columbia Outlet is a true outlet store for the brands there, but seriously, its not an Outlet Mall IMHO. And J. Crew gives you a 15% discount when you show a student ID. But when a skirt is still over $100 at an OUTLET, 15% is not that great.... The parking situation is atrocious as theres really only 4 ways in, on the corners and yet the parking is on the sides. No matter what youre parking a half a mile away i swear! And on top of that trying to get out of the mall on a busy day... might as well sit around the mall longer and save gas as youll be backed up forever! Word to the wise, almost everyone goes left then left again to get back to 75. If you go straight, then you have to turn right, but turn around at Traders World youll still get out of there and back on the highway 15 minutes faster than waiting. In my opinion its worth the money youll save driving up to Jeffersonville.
I have visited this mall a couple times, usually after a trip to Ikea. This is an open air mall, so on cold or rainy days youll want a jacket. The mall grounds are kept clean and the mall itself has a nice mix of stores. Stores that we dont have back in Indy like North Face and Oakley Vault. The way the buildings are laid out its basically a giant circle. Easy to navigate with directories around to help you find what you are looking for. I like that Cincy Premium has a food court. Most outlet malls dont have that. There are bathrooms scattered all around so its easy to find one should you need to use one. There is a lot of parking but I havent visited this mall during the holiday season so I cant say how it is that time of year.
Clean, safe, and honest. This is a great place to shop for anyone in the market for whatever, they have a lot of everything to choose from. ProTip-Go on a weeknight, the place is fairly slow, lots of accessible parking, and deals galore. Personal favorites are the Le Creuset outlet, if youre the chef type as i am. Also, Under Armour and North Face outlets...though there are great deals all over the mall. If you are a AAA member, hit the shopper services desk in the food court for a coupon book (free for AAA members, $5 to non members) and youll save a bunch on whatever you buy.
Nice place to walk around on a weekend but understand that they barely, and I mean barely, qualify as an outlet. Most businesses here are "high end" shops and if youre looking to get $300 jeans that had some slight issue with stitching for $120 then this is the place for you. Whats left are typical outlet style stores; luggage, toys, cookware, tools. Other points of interest: Disney Store, Nike, Yankee Candle, Converse, Pac-Sun, Polo, Under Armor
Plenty of parking, everything is very accessible. The food at the food court is good and plenty of choices. Its wide enough for stollers, and has a play ground for children. At times they have special bands playing, and most if has a covered roof. The bathrooms are pretty updated, the only down fall is they one have 1 family bathroom per section which sucks cause the center is revolved around family.
Im not a big fan of shopping, or malls in general, but this place is very tolerable. Spacious enough to avoid the excessive crowds, but not so far that its exhausting to walk through. There havent really been any new stores come in, but the selection thats there are very good and prices are as youd expect from a factory outlet. Food selection is average but parking and cleanliness are superb.
Started with imminent domain where they destroyed many local businesses including 2 large truck stops, they continues....with security guards screenning who they will allow in and not. I rode a bicycle there cause I wasnt allow to park my truck & trailer and I was envited out. Out! And for what? No signs for no bike - thats how they are. Terrible place to shop, I assure you.
I was counting on the relationship between AAA and premium outlets and I got there and hit with the unwanted suprise that the partnership between premium outlets and AAA had ended. I was shocked even more when I heard that I had to sign up AND pay 3 whole dollas for the book of coupons. This place does now play around with this maitence staff. It was so clean it was wild.
When i hear OUTLETS i just about loose my mind!! Usually outlets come with outlet pricing but not in Cincinnati ;-) the pricing in these outlet stores where regular pricing online and in-store which defeats the purpose of a OUTLET store but the environment was well maintained, service was excellent in each department store which makes your shopping experience awesome!
Its an average place for shopping as the collection are a not great. However when there are good sales this is the best place to go to you get many stuff for a great price. Still the collections in the shops are weak but thats the case in all the outlets than compared to actual showrooms. Their food court is not great, better to plan to eat food outside this area.
There are a variety of shops here. We went to one in Florida that had a better selection of stores. My wife loves the Dippin Dots! I would have given this place 4 stars if they didnt have an anti-gun policy. I dont feel safe in such places. Even with security riding around on their motorized tri-cycles... Gun free zones get innocent people killed.
Good: Nice, attractive, outdoor shopping center... actually a great place to walk around when the weather is nice (it is semi-covered, so a rainy day wont necessarily ruin a visit); Decent food court. Cautions: There are bargains, but like most outlet malls today, the bargains are not that different from what you can find in a traditional mall.
Walk in here at about anytime during business and some nifty 50% clearance sale is bound to be in a hefty little brand store. There are not a lot of food options, but the funnel cake and lemonade in the summer is great as well as the year-round Dippin Dots. Clean bathroom verified (my standard involves 5-star NYC, DC, and Beijing Hotels)
A lot of different stores in this mall. I give it a 4 because prices are high and I had a bad experience buying shoes for my three-year-old. The bat experience was with an employee at the shoe store, but not necessarily a reflection of the mall because I visited other locations within the mall and received good service
The outlet is a go too for items like shoes, perfume and kitchenware. You wont find the same deal on jewelry, clothing and accessories. Very few stores run better deals than you can find online. The facility is clean and open it is great just to walk and shop around. Nice and relaxing even for a shopping setting!
