One word - JEANS. Old Navy is one of the few places I can count one to carry jeans that fit me (8 long) at a reasonable price (under $30). The outlet stores tend to have frequent sales, but some items are priced too high for the quality. I just wish the clearance areas were better organized.
TJ Maxx is a great discount retailer that carries name brand merchandise at lower prices. I like that the quality of the merchandise is better than other discount retailers. Some TJ Maxx stores even carry high-end brands and prestige makeup. My only complaint is that some TJ Maxx stores are better organized than others, and some seem to mark things up past what there are worth on the discount circuit.
I love Ross. They carry quality merchandise at low prices. It's the first place I look before buying any clothes, shoes, and most Ross stores have late hours - perfect for late night shopping emergencies. The one drawback is that checkout lines get backed up during peak periods.
