Labor Day is traditionally the day I start my Christmas shopping. The first place I head to is Tanger Factory Outlet Center in Gonzales, LA. The center is an outlet, so, it already has lower prices than other stores. Gap, Mikasa, Naturalizer, Book Warehouse and Izod are just a few of the stores located there. They have about 50 stores total. The center always has a great Labor Day sale, many stores having sidewalk sales. I also get a coupon book in the mail for the sales going on at the outlet.
To me going here makes more sense than driving store to store shopping other sales. With the price of gas being what it is, going to Tanger to do my shopping is more economical.
