The Van Heusen Factory Outlet, located in the outlet center in Gilroy, is a great place to shop for clothes if you like clean lines and tailored garments. I was hesitant to go into the store at first - the window display featured pricey looking suits - but at my sister's insistance, in we went. What a surprise! The clothes were exactly what I was looking for. This store is a great place to pick up some of those wardrobe staples - black or gray slacks, a pencil skirt, solid color sweaters or a button down collared shirt. While I was there, the store was having a large sale, so there wasn't a single item in the many that I purchased that cost more than $25. Even without the sale, the prices at this store are more than reasonable for the quality fashionable pieces you will find.
My only issue with the store was the staff. Granted, we were there on a Wednesday morning just after opening, but nevertheless, the staff were not up to par. There was only one saleswoman in the store. When it came time to make my purchase, I had to stand at an unattended counter for several minutes before she came strolling out of the back, as though it were a nuisance to be doing her job.
The lack of customer service could be due to many reasons, and because of the quality and price of the clothes I found here, I am more than willing to give this store another shot next time I go to the outlets!
