All the other stores are gone, and they've moved into the Designer Building. You can still find $10 blue jeans and other good bargains, but you won't spend the day here any longer.

Not nearly what it was! Went from 3 floors in 2 buildings to one floor in one building. Much less in the way of selection

Vanity Fair is all under one roof instead of the red and blue buildings. It’s very nice, clean and depts are easily seen. The staff are very accommodating and eager to help you. Will definitely return.

In some ways it's a better experience than before. Brighter and more organized in the new location where Designers Outlet was. Really enjoyed the shopping experience there. Dressing rooms are actually stationed now. Check out was smooth.

Since my kids were small, a 2-3 time a year shopping trip to Reading has been a looked-forward to family outing. Now, the buildings are being torn down, the outside vendors (easy spirit, Rawlings, Wilson leather, etc.) are gone. Food court is gone. The pickings...More
