There are a lot of great reasons to visit Branson, Missouri, but the fabulous outlet shopping is one of the best. A shopping trip to Branson is never complete without a visit to the Tanger Outlet at 300 Tanger Boulevard.
Shops at the outlet include something for everyone. For parents, grandparents or anyone looking for the perfect Christmas gift for a kid, the outlet offers plenty of choices. There is The Disney Store, where my little girl was mesmerized by the vast array of princess dresses. Preteen shopping wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the Justice Outlet. The mall also houses a Gap Kids, OshKosh B’gosh, Carter’s and Gymboree – everything you need to outfit your kids in the latest looks.
For the trendy set, there is Gap, Polo Ralph Lauren, BCBG/Max Azria Final Cut and Coach, just to name a few. During our last visit we scored 50% off everything in the store at Banana Republic and 20% of the entire Coach Store. There were also great deals at Bass, which was offering all shoes on a buy-one-get-two-free sale. What a great opportunity to purchase boots for the entire family. For the younger crowd, there is Aeropostale, American Eagle Outfitters, and Rue21. Unfortunately, if you are looking for the Lucky Brand Store you are out of luck; it closed after only three months.
The biggest drawback of the mall is the lack of eateries. A&W is practically your only option, unless you want fudge for lunch, in which case The Fudgery is for you. If you plan on spending the day shopping, I would suggest bringing some snacks, especially if you have little ones in tow. There is just not much offered, especially if you are looking for something a little healthy.
The other concern with the Branson Tanger Outlet is the parking. There is ample parking most days of the year, but if you are shopping around the Christmas holidays, be prepared to wait for a parking space, or hike from a nearby field. Just know that the deals will be worth the wait.
The Branson, Missouri Tanger outlet mall is open Monday through Saturday from 9am to 9pm and Sundays from 10am to 7pm. The mall has extended holiday hours for most major shopping days, such as the day after Thanksgiving when the mall opens at midnight. Upon arrival, stop by the customer service desk for a coupon book, or before heading to the mall, check out the Tanger coupons and sales offers online. Tanger Outlet also offers outlet shopping at 31 other locations throughout the US, including the newest center in Mebane, North Carolina.
