Outlet shopping is not always for the faint of heart as it takes preparation, patience and energy. The good news for anyone heading to DFW is the outlet shopping circuit is unbelievably seamless and equally as rewarding. The three signature outlet malls offer solid discount shopping with hundreds of brands and stores for you and everyone on your list. And with all three locations in easy driving distance of one another – mixed with the convenience of hotels, restaurants and attractions everywhere and in between – many seasoned shoppers make a weekend getaway of it.
Allen Premium Outlets

This favorite shopping outlet in Allen is located furthest north of the three — just 35 minutes from DFW International Airport and 40 minutes from Dallas Love Field. With every day discounts ranging from 25% to 65%, people come to this open-air spot from all over the world to check out the 100 name-brand designers and sportswear stores.

Grapevine Mills is two miles north of DFW International Airport and 20 miles from Dallas Love Field.
