Las Vegas Shopping Clothing, Shoes, Sporting Goods

I am heading to Las Vegas in a few weeks and looking to do a lot of shopping for clothes, electronics, shoes and generally anything i can fit in my empty suit cases.
I want to know if anybody has been there and where the bargains are and where to stay clear of, i don't mind travelling around Las Vegas to get different items from different stores, and want to know where people got great deals, also want to know where the best shop was to get NFL clothing.

    Just got back from Vegas last week! Firstly, I’d be very dubious of the ‘outlet malls’, which have questionable discounts. We headed out to the suburbs- mainly Henderson- and picked up Sketchers footwear that the outlets had for $36 for just $12!
    Suburbs also had better discounts at Ross, Marshall’s and TJ Maxx than you’d find in the tourist areas- but you do have to dig. I didn’t look for NFL gear but scored Ralph Lauren shoes and Calvin Klein dresses for <$20 Usd!

    I'm sure this won't surprise you, but any shop near The Strip or Freemont is a rip off. For example, I saw a liquor store selling US made vodka for pretty much the same price as you find at Dan Murphy's.

    Be sure to visit the marijuana dispensaries located near the strip. Even if you don't buy anything it's an eye opening experience. Bring your passport for entry.

    Premium Outlets in north or south Las Vegas

    Not everything is a bargain in the US, you have to be careful and know what things cost in Australia. Full price shoes and clothes can sometimes be the same price as at home.

    The north and south outlets are good, but crowded with tourists, if you can spare the time, as MsBin said above, try and get out to any outlets that are outside of the main strip, as they wont be as busy and you might find more bargains. Ross dress for less can also be good, but overwhelming as it's just packed full of clothes/shoes and you have to trawl through them. If there's any Nordstrom Rack or TJ Maxx these are good too.

    There's a few shopping centres on the strip too - it's no guarantee that you'll get any bargains but if you are in the area you might as well check - there's a Macy's in the fashion mall down across the road from like the Venetian, which sometimes can have some good sale racks.

        There are a few I can think of:
        * Primm - close to Vegas, pretty big
        * Barstow - smallish but decent brands and good for a stop about halfway between LA and Vegas

        Maybe another one just outside LA as well, but can't quite remember the name at the moment. Depending where you are staying in LA, Citadel outlets near Commerce Casino is good as well.

        Might add I haven't been for about 3 years so may be some changes, a bit of googling may help.

    With the AU vs US dollar in a bad way (for Aussie shopping) it'll be tough to find really good bargains. You will mostly be avoiding shipping costs and getting acess to a wider range of fashion styles that aren't in Australia.

    As other people have mentioned most Outlets are stocked with outlet grade stuff and very few actually stock the traditional "end of line/floor stock". You'll have to be lucky to get lucky.

    Be prepared to change your credit card on your return - from my experience every time I've gone to the US a shop or hotel has been overrun by hackers and the number taken.

    Will you be landing in LA? You will need to check out Citadel shopping outlet. That was good. If your going with your Mrs, you will there all day.

    you may as well shop on amazon, and have all your goods shipped to the amazon pickup points (like aus post parcel lockers) somewhere around your hotel.

    Clothes shopping in US isn't a bargain like it used to be a few years ago due to todays conversion rates. It seems like clothes will only be cheaper when they are on special, even for US standards.
    But if you hire a car, Premium outlets are not too fat from the strip. (Alot of places, including casinos is free all day parking, and plentiful)

    My bro came back with heaps of ralph lauren and tommy Hilfiger clothes.
    I think he got them from a factory outlet or similar.
    They were heavily discounted (last seasons stock, but summer was just about to start here, so worked out perfect).
    He got some additional discount for spending over $1,000 .
    Returned bearing gifts :)
    So I guess check your friends and family sizes before you leave, to bring em back prezzies the correct size.

    What brands are you into?

      everything mate, my entire family is going we have three cars driving from LA to Vegas and have 5 females armed and ready with 20k to spend on everything. They all have different tastes.

      •  

        If that’s the case definitely stop at the Desert Hills Outlets in Cabazon CA. I could and have spent days here’s shopping the best brands at some ridiculous prices.

        I always find the Off Fifth Saks Fifth Ave stores amazing.

    You can register before you go for a discount book for the Premium outlets in Vegas. I've registered 3 or 4 times but always forget to use it! Dont forget the department stores like Macys in the Fashion Show Mall. I was there once and they had a big % off deal depending on how much you spent. With all of the other stacked discounts it was very cheap!

    There are 2 'Premium Outlets' in Vegas, North and South. There's a different mix of shops at either. Have a look at the website before you go to make sure whatever shop you are interested in is at the outlet you go to. Personally i think there is a better mix at 'South'. As others have said, anything near the strip is going to be inflated. That said, some of the shops in the fashion show mall, when they are having sales can still be pretty good!
