Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Factory Outlet? - In the past 10 years we have seen a huge growth in the number of Factory Outlets in Australia and in fact internationally, so much so that it has now become a trend to use the term ‘outlet’ on promotional material and advertising.
A Factory Outlet is a manufacturer-owned store selling that firm’s closeouts, discontinued merchandise, irregulars, cancelled orders, and, sometimes, in-season, first-quality merchandise.
Having said that, in more recent times, some manufacturers have consolidated into mega companies that own many labels and sell via Factory Outlets that offer many brands. Alternatively we find companies that provide Factory Outlet distribution for several manufacturers.
