Think you have the skills to score the best deals at Dixie? Here are our tips and tricks for shopping at Dixie Outlet Mall like a PRO!

Shop Weekdays

Like most malls, Dixie Outlet Mall is swarmed on Saturdays and Sundays with eager shoppers. We recommend hitting up this mall on weekday mornings and afternoons for ample room to shop, the best selection of new merchandise and plenty of parking spots.

The Dixie Outlet Mall Winners

The Winners at Dixie Outlet Mall is AMAZING! It’s a hidden gem with reduced Kate Spade purses, Ray-Ban sunglasses and Nike athletic apparel for the whole family. This Winners location opens half-an-hour earlier than the rest of the mall so head there first!

Shop at the Back of the Store

Don’t be fooled by seasonal window displays. Just like full-price retail stores, outlet stores house the merchandise with the deepest discounts at the back of the store.

Cinnabon!

Need we say more? Every shopper needs their sugar to track down deals. For Toronto residents, Cinnabon Bakeries are few and far between. When visiting Dixie Outlet Mall, be sure to stop by Cinnabon for a coffee and delicious cinnamon treat for added fuel.

The Dixie Outlet Mall Footlocker Outlet

Are you a shoe fanatic? The selection and pricing at Dixie Outlet Mall’s Footlocker Outlet is INSANE! Here you’ll find reduced men’s athletic apparel and footwear from Adidas, Under Armour, Converse, Puma and more at up to 90% off! We spotted Lacoste sneakers for $19.99 at this outlet. Make sure your arms are free for all of the bags you’ll be walking out with.

Try on Everything and Beware of Return Policies

Before handing over your money, be sure you’ve tried on your purchase. Most outlets and factory stores are able to offer such amazing markdowns because items are priced at Final Sale.

Carry Cash

In addition to brand name outlets, Dixie Outlet Mall is home to a few specialty and independent retailers who have more flexible pricing structures. Similar to a flea market, you can try negotiating with these business owners and offer to pay cash for a better price.  

Free WIFI

Every deal hunter knows the value of comparison shopping. Be sure to take advantage of Dixie Outlet Mall’s free mall-wide WIFI to trail the Internet for better deals while you shop. We doubt you’ll find them!
