Day Trip # 4- Outlet shopping

We decided to take advantage of the nice weather we were getting after Hurricane Arthur. We didn’t take a direct hit or anything but we certainly got rain and wind and lots of it! It unfortunately messed up a lot of things that were planned for the 4th of July, not just our plans but everyone’s. The local fireworks shows were all put off until delay dates but it became too difficult to keep track of which city was having their fireworks show and when. But now onto the calm after the storm, shopping at the Merrimack Premium Outlets, located in Merrimack, New Hampshire.

We had never been to the outlets before and since we are on the hunt for vacation clothes and luggage we thought we would check out the luggage. It doesn’t take us too long to get to so mid morning we decided to hop in the car and venture out. The traffic wasn’t bad at all which leads us to think that most people haven’t come home from their 4th of July extravaganzas.

The shopping outlet itself is a really nice set up. It is essentially outdoor walking to each store, perfect for the weather we were having. It is really clean and set up in an easily accessible fashion. We didn’t think that the prices, since it is outlet shopping, were much different than the local stores we have at home. We did hear a lot of French speaking people which leads us to believe that many Canadians were visiting the area. We also noticed this in Kittery, Maine outlets too. For them, the prices are much cheaper than in Canada.

They did have a few luggage places but we didn’t see anything that the Mrs. has been searching for. The prices were not really any better than our local malls so there was no rush to purchase anything. We’re all about the research, as we’ve shared a lot, it’s all about getting the right price even if that means waiting a little bit. Thank goodness we have no kids, that wouldn’t go over well.

There were plenty of stores to check out. Here are some of the ones we looked in: Under Armour, Skechers, Reebok, Lindt Chocolate, Aeropostale and many many more. They also offer a small food court to have lunch inside or outside.

Let us know what day trips you have planned this summer!
