The Tanger Outlet in Foley is a great place to find bargains on just about everything. It sustained some Hurricane Ivan damage that was still apparent when I went in October of 2005, but they have done a lot and are still making a lot of renovations and repairs. There are many, many different stores to check out, and lots of great deals to be found. They have added an Old Navy Outlet in additon to Gap, now, and it was really nice. I found jeans for $7 and tops for $3--not a bad price at all! I love the Coach outlet, too. It was only moderately crowded in October, but I have been for Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving) and it is a MADHOUSE!!!!! Be prepared for crazy parking and tons of people if you go during that time. Some of the best sales can be found during the summer, though--I bought my husband a leather coat in Wilson's in August for only $50, and it was $400 regular price at the store in Huntsville. I only wish this outlet was closer, I'd go more often!
