Outlet Store Shopping ... gotta love it!!!

Today we went shopping for some casual shoes for me. We ended up at the Bay looking at their overpriced Rockports ($150 for the pair I was looking at). I complained to the salesperson about their lack of selection, which prompted the guy to start telling me how their selection isn't quite as good as the Rockport Outlet Store. I asked the guy where it was, which is when he realized he just lost a sale , and off we went.

I ended up getting 2 pairs of Rockports ($69 and $79), one of which was the exact same pair I saw at the Bay. SCORE!!! The Rockport Store was part of a mall complex with a bunch of other Outlet stores. We checked out a Paderno Outlet Store and picked up a large measuring bowl ($7) and a bottle opener ($4). Then we went to the Lindt Outlet Store and picked up 6 truffle type chocolate bars at 75% off.

Anybody else shop at outlet stores?
