If shopping’s your thing, set a course for Exit 76B off I-65, where Edinburgh Premium Outlets and the Exit 76 Antique Mall pack a one-two punch of opportunities to browse and buy.
Who doesn’t love a good deal? The prices at Edinburgh Premium Outlets are well below what you’ll see at retail stores to begin with, but time your visit right, and you might just walk away with some even more spectacular deals.
Our trip happened to coincide with a move-'em-out sale at the Banana Republic Outlet, offering 50 percent off already-marked-down clearance items. We walked away with a bag full of shirts, pants, and skirts for less than $10 each (some items as low as $4). And when we walked into the J. Crew Outlet, we were greeted with the happy news that everything in the store was half-off that day. Score!
Shhh...here’s an insider tip that can save you even more money: before you go, register online (for free!) at www.premiumoutlets.com/vip to get exclusive downloadable coupons and a bonus VIP savings booklet you can pick up at the mall office. Many of the participating stores offer an extra percentage off your total bill if you spend $100 or more. And you’ll also enjoy access to additional discounts and special offers at regional restaurants and attractions.
The dizzying inventory covers everything under the sun — toys, Pez dispensers, books, albums, furniture, tools, quilts, furniture… the list goes on and on. Depression glass and Fiestaware are represented in every imaginable color, along with a surprisingly large array of Star Wars collectibles and enough cookbooks to fill a library.
If you’re a collector, looking for a unique gift, or in the market for a conversation piece, the Exit 76 Antique Mall is sure to provide plenty of options to consider.
