need urgent shopping advice please

HI all

Hard to believe but we have had TWO house fires in 8 months and the second one wiped out our walk in so we are left with no winter clothes! decided to go to U.S.

- we live in Ireland - and have been to Woodbury Common and to Prime Outlets in Orlando which I adored - Prime in Orlando is so 'together' and feels safe and relaxed.

as I am looking for winter clothing etc etc I would be v grateful if somebody could advise or give me any tips. flights to NYC are a little cheaper and shorter than Florida. anywhere else worth checking out?

So sorry to hear about your fires. I happened to find your post by accident. I would guess this Woodbury forum is not very active and suggest you post on the NYC forum. Title your thread Outlet Shopping advice and explain you're willing to fly to places other than NYC but using the NYC forum since it's busier.

My 2 penneth, I think a northern location like NYC will have more choices for winter clothes at this time of year (when are you planning on coming?) than Orlando. The other outlet malls I know of are not near a major city. In addition to Woodbury Commons there's also Jersey Gardens in New Jersey (still a flight to NYC) and there's Tanger Outlet on Long Island (still fly into JFK) but you might want to stay out near the mall for a night or two. There's a newish Holiday Inn Express right there but you really need a car imo for Long Island.

thank you so much for your kind advice and help. Just today, we got a great deal on flight to orlando

and having checked the web the prime and premium outlets appear to have lots of winter apparel and other items we need to replace and for some reason (other than the dollar..sorry!) the prices are pretty amazing so we will go for four days - two of us will do the necessary in two days.

I really appreciate your help - sincere thanks!
