Whether you’re interested in the latest sneaker trends, that perfect accent piece for your living room, or a new pair of headphones, it sounds like you’re in for a trip to the mall. In Maine, the great outlets and malls throughout the state will bring you all that you’re looking for and then some. Here are our favorites.
Featuring outlet stores like Nike, Coach Factory, Kay Jewelers, L.L. Bean, Talbots Outlet, and more, Freeport Village Station is a fun place to shop, eat and play. Enjoy burgers and milkshakes at Johnny Rocket’s. Catch a movie at the adjacent Nordica Theatre after a day of bargain hunting.
Featuring a seemingly endless array of stores on Route 1, Kittery Premium Outlets include Aldo, Banana Republic, Movado, Coach, Yankee Candle, J. Crew, Lindt, Chico’s, Clarks and countless more. Shoppers will also find a Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts and several restaurants in the midst of their shopping experience. These stores are broken up into several plazas that all fall under the heading of Kittery Premium Outlets. Shoppers can pick up a map and quite often some coupons, too, at most of these plazas.
Shop at Hannoush Jewelers, Clarks, Soma, Sephora, Williams Sonoma, Pier I Imports, L’Occitane and more at the Maine Mall. Treat the kids to a one of a kind stuffed animal they make themselves at Build A Bear. Dine at Old Country Buffet, Villa Italian Kitchen or Johnny Rockets.
