I went in June this year and concidentally I think I've been visiting woodbury annually for the past 3 years. We never fail to spend up to a day there and so far, I don't think we visited all the stores during each visit as we would do it selectively and still spend so much time.
As a friend described it, even those non-shoppers will also go "wild" and buy something at woodbury.
Always like to make a trip to woodbury as there are a wide variety of brands including the higher end ones (eg. Ferragamo/ burberry/ gucci).
Generally discounts are good except for the tax rate. Eg. in New Jersey, there is no tax for clothes and some other items but in woodbury it was more than 10% if I don't remember wrongly so some of those items are better bought in macys at NJ malls eg. men business shirts
Tks for your fast response, MMM!
I'm thinking of just shopping at the usual downtown Macys, Saks 5th Ave, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus or Nordstrom cos I only hv 4 key targets:
1. Skincare/cosmetics (USA is a paradise for such items)
2. Branded shoes (Christian Louboutin/Manolo Blahnik/Charlotte Olympia/Giuseppe Zanotti!!!)
3. iPhone6/Apple Watch (not sure if it's cheaper and also I need to come back to pay customs taxes...)
Currently, I'm not quite into those Italian/Brit luxury labels you mentioned (for that matter, RL, Coach, DKNY, Tommy, Nautica, Banana Republic, Guess, Gap, J Crew, CK)...that's why I'm still contemplating if I shd travel to Woodbury...
