Just one of many great things about Metro Detroit would be our diverse shopping options.  If you prefer a high-end consumer experience, you can hit Somerset or Partridge Creek. However, there are times when you may need to pinch pennies, but you still want to look like a million bucks. You are in luck! Even if you don’t have the bucks to blow, you still have fantastic options to get the goods for less.  –Amy Bergin

Tanger Outlet

1475 N Burkhart Road
Howell, MI 48855
(517) 545-0500

Located just off I-96 in Howell, this is a popular destination for those on the west side.  Tanger offers 75 name brand stores in this easy-to-navigate, open-air mall. Although this isn’t the largest collection of outlet stores, it’s a perfect choice for a relaxing afternoon of shopping. Tweens will find several of their favorite labels: Aeropostale, PacSun, Rue21, and Claire’s, to name a few. The food court is on the smaller side, so you may want to consider taking a drive to nearby downtown Howell for a bite, or grab a Coney just outside the entrance.
