What a steal
DFO (Direct Factory Outlets) is a shopping complex filled with clearance shops with big names such as Levi's, Connor, YD, Cotton On, Factorie, Ralph Lauren, Bed Bath and Table, Sheridan, Bonds, Converse, Vans, Platypus Shoes, and many more.
Visiting DFO was a great experience for me as I found it to be a lot less busy than large shopping centres. The sales assistants were also friendlier and always asking us if we needed a hand, plus not to mention the super cheap prices on all the items.
My other half was looking for shoes and there is certainly no shortage of shoe shops here, including Shoe Haven, Platypus, Vans, Converse, Famous Footwear, just to name a few. We had great service at the Converse outlet with lots of great deals, including buy one and get 50% off the second pair. The sales team was great and made sure we found what we were after.
Next, we took a look at the clothing stores. We found there to be a lot of great deals, including 50% off and buy one get one half price. My partner was impressed with the selection at Connor, YD and Cotton On. We spent a total of $200 between us at all three stores and grabbed some lovely winter wears.
Other stores I was surprised to see at DFO was an outlet for Hallmark cards, Shaver Shop, Crocs, Diana Ferrari, Hairhouse Warehouse, Purebaby and Supre. There are a few eateries around the centre - you can find Subway, Chinese food, dumplings, Boost Juice and a small cafe for muffins and coffee.
The centre is open 10am-6pm seven days a week and has free parking around the vicinity. It was very quick for us to get a park, which was good and close to the entrance. We would definitely visit DFO again because of the great savings and fantastic customer service we experienced. It is a great place to shop if you're looking for clothing, household items, luggage, shoes, kitchen items, gifts, jewellery or beauty supplies.
If you are looking at going on a shopping spree at your favourite big name stores but want to bag a bargain, I suggest checking out DFO first.
