Factory Outlets are stores where manufacturers offer items at a discount in order to sell off remaining inventory from the previous season. Not everything is on sale, although you can usually find some deals. Most of the outlet stores are clustered in large outdoor shopping centers, but many are too far from Los Angeles to be reached via public transportation.
