Premium Outlets

Yeoju Premium Outlets

Yeoju Premium Outlets was jointly developed by Simon Property Group (a U.S. company) and Shinsegae Chelsea. It was the first outlet in Korea, and offers products at 25 to 65% off retail prices all year round. Among the many brands housed in the mall, you're sure to recognize famous names such as Giorgio Armani, Bally, Burberry, Dior, DKNY, Fendi, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, and Max Mara, all of which carry a wide variety of items, including shoes, bags, accessories, childrens' wear, and household items.

Most products are from previous seasons, and popular items are only available in limited sizes, so it's best to go the outlet with no particular "must-purchase" item in mind.

At the outlet's website, visitors can print a voucher that can be exchanged at the outlet's information center for a sheet of coupons. The coupon sheet offers special sales promotions and additional discounts on clothes, beverages, meals, and more.
