The new facility is very nice with lots of natural light and much better lighting than at the older facility. Lots of selections, especially for jeans, at great prices even without special sales. Enjoy the VIP bonuses as well.

Been coming to vanity fair for over 30 years. Even though they tore down the outlet buildings and moved across the way, they still have a great building with the best deals and quality clothing.

Had a nice time shopping at Vanity Fair. It used to be in one of the old factory buildings that was torn down. This new store is nice and clean & still have the good pricing & bargains as the old store.

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.

The transfer of Vanity Fair from the historic blue and red buildings to the old Designer's showcase building across the parking lot is complete and I must say things just don't seem the same. The store is very nice with good prices, some unbelievable buys...More

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.
