Poor location, under par for the choice of stores, poorly managed, just a disgrace to the outlet chain.

I've visited this outlet mall many times over the years. There are some really good shops but over time a number of them have closed or downsized. There is still a good selection with stores such as coach, Nike, Tommy Hilfiger, Gap, Nine West, CK, RL, Banana Republic etc and if you are into these brands then I would definitely visit.
The mall itself is spotlessly clean, very very quiet (unlike the larger outlet malls in Orlando) and plenty of parking. The whole shopping experience is made very pleasant. So if you are passing it's worth stopping!

Lots of stores to meet everyone's needs! Friendly & helpful staff. However, the food court's selection was kind of limited.

Being from Canada, where outlet malls are generally non-existent, I try to frequent one when I'm in the US. The deals are amazing compared to what you get in Canada. I've been to a number of them in recent years and made a point of hitting this one in late November 2009 when I was in St. Petersburg for a wedding. While the deals were pretty good, I found it incredibly difficult to find much in my size in many of the stores that I typically frequent when hitting the outlets (i.e. Banana Republic, Kenneth Cole, Gap). I'm a size medium, which is pretty standard, but everything seemed to be either small or XL wherever I went and the merchandise seemed pretty picked over (I suspect that this was because we were there a few days after "Black Friday"). I ended up not buying much and given the fact that we rented a car just for this trip, it wasn't really worth it. The drive was about 30 minutes from St. Pete (likely much more from Tampa) so a cab would have been about $90 each way, so renting a car was the only viable option.

The stores there were typical of what you would find at an outlet mall and the prices were pretty good.
