As its collection of more than 50 favorite brand names gear up for the busy back-to-school shopping season, Tulare Outlets knows this time of year can often lead to that annual summertime argument: students want the latest trends, parents want the deepest savings.

According to Tulare Outlets General Manager Patty Rocha, the savings offered every day at outlet centers can help parents save dramatically on the clothing and accessories their kids want most to head back to class.

“We tend to believe the latest styles from popular designer labels will take us over budget,” explains Rocha. “As we continue to find ways to stretch our dollars farther, back-to-school shoppers will be delighted to see that this school year’s most popular styles are available at the outlets for a fraction of their regular retail cost.”

At daily savings of up to 65 percent off regular retail prices, Tulare Outlets, located off Highway 99 and Prosperity Ave., offers shoppers a full range of popular back-to-school brands including Gap Outlet, Express Factory Outlet, Forever 21, Levi’s Outlet Store, Justice Factory Store, PacSun, Tommy Hilfiger, Skechers and Nike Factory Store, among many more.

Before visiting Tulare Outlets for a back-to-school savings spree, shoppers should make sure to visit its website at www.tulareoutletcenter.com. Along with a complete store directory, sale information and driving directions, the outlet center also offers a free VIP Club where members receive both exclusive and advance notice of special sales, exciting offers and can’t miss seasonal events throughout the year.

What’s more, Tulare Outlets will host “Cruize” Night this Saturday!

Beginning at 5:00 p.m. Small Town Cruizers, a popular group of local car enthusiasts, will be on-site for a fun-filled car show. The monthly outlet center happening offers the family the chance to see a wide variety of classic muscle cars and roadsters up close and personal.
