Owner description: Welcome to The Mills at Jersey Gardens, New Jersey's largest outlet and value retail center with over 200 stores all under one roof! The mall is a shopper's paradise anchored by top outlets including Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Neiman Marcus Last Call, Century 21, Burlington Coat Factory, Marshall's and Bed Bath & Beyond. Shop for amazing values at the best brand outlets including Michael Kors, Coach, True Religion, Nautica, PUMA, Kate Spade and Guess. The center also offers the largest Tommy Hilfiger in the US and a 20-screen AMC Theatres featuring IMAX. With daily transportation from both the Port Authority Bus Terminal and Newark Liberty International Airport, the center is a great day-trip out of the hustle and bustle of New York City and features tax-free shopping on clothes and shoes! Enjoy great dining at Johnny Rockets, Chili's and Applebee's.

Wanted to go to some outlets, but it's hard to find indoor options. Jersey Gardens is indoors, and has a great selection of stores. It's huge, so prepare to do lots of walking. The only bad thing I have to say is that the Ralph Lauren Polo stores have poor selections, look like some sort of warehouse rejects.

We got the bus from Port Authority which takes around 30/40 minutes. The shopping is really good. Most people had large cases on wheels which they were filling with clothes, shoes, sheets, towels etc. Good deals in Victorias Secret, Hollister etc. would think it is a better option than Woodbury Commons as it is less than half the journey. There is a great food hall too so every reason to take a break.

I'll definitely return. I love the discounts on stores I'd usually think I cannot afford back home: Cole Haan and Kate Spade come to mind. The discount stores also have unbelievable bargains: luxury shoes and fashion--you just have to be patient, though, while sifting through the racks. To rest my weary feet and fortify myself for more shopping, the food court is humungous and has a good selection of restaurants

What ever you need, more than likely you can find it here at the Mills at Jersey Gardens. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes because the mall is very large. It is not the most decorative mall but there are bargains for every budget from high end to low budget. It attracts bus and car loads of New Yorkers because there are no state taxes on clothing! There is adequate parking. There are multiple restaurants and a food court. Although there is also a movie theater with an IMAX, I would not recommend it. It is not clean nor is it well run. The lines are long for everything, including tickets, food, drink and theater entry. However if you like to shop and you are in the area, you may want to visit Jersey Gardens.

We went there on the right day. The day it was raining all day in New York.
We took the bus from Port Authority. Waited in a very long queue to get in the bus. Thought it would take hours but surprisingly it took 20 minutes. Many busses came (maybe because of the weather they allocated more busses that day).
Entered the mall. It was like entering any other typical mall. Clean and spacey, but crowded. It wasn’t annoying though. We went to almost all the brand shops and got us some great deals. Lacoste, Levi’s, adidas, tommy, Ralph. They got it all and good outlet prices.
Worth trying. Remember to bring a suitcase if you are planning to spend money. It is a must!
