Ann & Hope is the site of America's very first outlet shopping center. While the original Ann & Hope store closed years ago, an indoor plaza of sorts has opened up in the same space. Among those outlets is the Westies Shoe Outlet which is directly across from the entrance of this historic mill. They have primarily women's and men's shoes and boots and offer a variety of name brand shoes at great prices. Check out the sales and close-outs as the bargains there are the best. These are not out-of-style shoes either - latest fashions are the majority of the offerings - and at deep discounts.
