As a JB girl, i am seriously glad they have finally opened a premium outlet store in South East Asia, and what better place to have it than good old Johor Bahru! It opens starting from today and sneak previews are from 2-10th December. Official launch would be on 11th December. Although it's not officially launched yet, that did not deter many of my friends from going to check things out, and things look really good! And i am here to share what i have found out about the newest South East Asian shopping must-go!
Outlet stores are where, retailers (mostly high end shops) set up shop to sell past season items or items that are deemed defected.
Why would anyone buy old or defected products? Well, because defects are usually minor and designs are still really pretty even if it is not from the current collection. And of course, this is a chance to purchase 'branded' products at a fraction of the price.
Polo Ralph Lauren
CK Calvin Klein
Charles and Keith
The Body Shop
I don't know what brands these are *shy*:
This is branded?:
As of now 70% of the shops are open and discounts supposedly between 25%-75% everyday. From my friends observation, Coach was going at 20-40% discounts with some wrislets going for around RM80.
Here are some pictures of the place.
I really need to go! I can imagine many Johoreans walking around in Coach from now on, and long jams across the causeway from Singapore to JB!
Be warned though, the weather is a bit loopy these days- one minute it's burning hot, another it's raining cats and dogs.
Here's the address:
Johor Premium Outlets
Jalan Premium Outlets
Indahpura 81000 Kulaijaya
Johor Darul Takzim
And map on how to get there.
