There's only one reason why you'd go out of your way to shop at the Circle Factory Outlets in Manasquan: you want a good deal. The outdoor atmosphere is not welcoming; it is not dilapidated but the place is not exactly high-class. I saw snowflake decorations when it was almost summer. The parking lot seemed like it could use a resurfacing. It is a small outlet mall with not a ton of shopping, located near Brielle. However, I must commend the staff here; they are very friendly and make conversation with you as you shop. They are more than willing to help you out. Probably since there aren't many customers, even on weekends. Anyhow, I would come here again, just only if I was passing by. The prices were phenomenal and the selection was good. The stores had what I wanted in my size, and their interior decor was as nice as any New Jersey suburban mall. Two stores that particularly stood out for me were Haggar Clothing Co. and Harry & David, but I'm sure you could find something special for yourself too.
