What is outlet shopping?
I often see small independent shops in cities using the term 'outlet' incorrectly, so I wanted to explain what 'outlet' means! An Outlet shop is a shop with a 'permanent' discount off the recommended retail price all-year-round, all-day, everyday! Outlet does not mean that there is a Sale on! An Outlet shop is a shopping concept with all-year-round retail discounts.
La Roca Village is a designer outlet shopping village near Barcelona where you will find permanent 50% discounts up to 70% discounts off recommended retail prices on high-end, boutique designer outlet shops throughout the year.
The difference between Sale and Outlet
If a shop has a Sale, this is a temporary discount from 3% discount to 80% discount for a certain period of time, usually throughout seasonal periods or a flash sale, of which usually (but not always) excludes a start and end sale date.
Whereas, an Outlet shop, or Outlet shopping concept (village), offers an all-year-round, permanent retail discount of 50-70% off the retail prices.
