If you’re anything like us, you’re probably still nursing a holiday hangover. But if there’s one thing we’re so done with, it’s the holiday rush. The sight of any more red tags just gives us war flashbacks. The traffic! The long lines! The crying children! Though if yo’ mama taught you right, you know better than to spend all your energy and pamasko before the holiday clearance sales begin. That is, of course, ‘til before y’all dis- covered Greenfield City’s Paseo Outlets.
I know what you’re thinking. Why travel all the way to “south south” (like Sta. Rosa, Laguna south) just to shop some more? Well, Paseo is the country’s largest premier outlet center and since outlets basically mean discounts, it seems like a pretty good deal. Here, red tags are the norm. Over 50 international brands are on sale every day (believe it, it’s their official hashtag). Usually when you think of outlets, sports stores like Nike come to mind. While Paseo boasts of having two—Nike Park and Nike Factory Store — it also carries brands like Samsonite, Aeropostale, Skechers and—would you believe it?— Pottery Barn and West Elm. So yes, you can finally buy your mom something nice from those stores other than a candle. If you’re feelin’ lucky, take a trip to the two retail rows (yup, you read that right) of Bench Depot and you’ll definitely find steals from the many international labels it carries. Think: Under Armour, Charles & Keith and Cotton On.
