Manchester has a wealth of shopping offerings, from outlets to the Northshire bookstore and stores headed east on Route 30. There are high end offerings, outfitters, woodworking shops, and much more.

I have been shopping at these outlets for many years. Despite the turnover in retailers, the shops have maintained the New England feel of the town. Not sure there are real "bargains" and it is always a surprise when I visit to see what has stayed and the new retailers. Miss a few of the stalwarts, but still a nice... More

Manchester is a very cute town, and in one way it's understandable that they didn't want a strip mall of designer outlets, like is usually the case. However, the outlets are scattered over a fairly broad area with no real "plan" or logic to the clustering of outlets. Add to this the fact that the terrain is not flat at... More

We hope you come back and visit us again. Please let us know when you do and we will be sure to provide you with our 4-color discount book. Have... More

I have been stopping here for almost 20 years to shop and find it enjoyable. I'm not sure that the bargains are significant, but it is a lovely town with lovely outlets.

This reminds me so much of Bicester. They both have the same New England style of architecture, although Manchester is more spread out. The same designers have outlets in both and it's a fun way to spend a few hours with some amazing bargains.

After working at Crate & Barrel for over 10 years, I thought I'd gone to heaven to buy Marimeko at a discount. Look towards the dressing rooms for more heavily discounted clothing. After shopping at Eileen Fisher for over 20 years, the outlet store here didn't disappoint. I was fine walking around the town on a beautiful summer day, but... More

The shops are wonderful! All the big names are here, Loft, Michael Kors, Coach, Crabtree and Evelyn, Bass, Orvis(headquarters is here), Banana Republic, just to mention a few. If it's nice weather the walk from shop to shop is very nice. Not sure how it would be in winter. Stores are located on the Main Street but are spread out.... More

This place is good for a short visit. Not a huge range of shops and prices not all that cheap. You myst visit the Northshires bookstore though as that is awesome!

great brand names, Chico's - Vineyard Vines - Eileen Fischer, Uggs, however, you either are a marathon walker or you must drive to most places. Nothing is conveniet to park your car and go to them. If you buy and walk, to your car, it may take you 40 minutes, better off driving from one set of stores to another.... More

Hello, Thank you so much for visiting Manchester Designer Outlets in beautiful Manchester, Vt. and for shopping our stores. What makes MDO different is that we are situated within a beautiful town, rather than being an artificially built shopping village. Therefore, you can shop, stop into a cafe, go to the movies or pick something up in a market. MDO... More

We enjoyed shopping at several Designer Outlets on our recent Manchester trip, with about 4-5 stores in each building. It's a bit inconvenient moving from cluster to cluster, but not too bad if the weather is conducive. In each building, we found one or two stores offering the types of items we were seeking, with best success at Talbot's, Brook... More
