The Mills at Jersey Gardens

Jersey Gardens is not strictly an outlet mall though it has a number of outlet shops. However, it does offer a good selection of stores and even has a cinema so your partner can go to the movies while you shop through the mall. A win-win if you ask me.

You’ll find various high-street stores there but also department stores like Bloomingdale’s and Saks Fifth Avenue. Stock up on the latest fashion at the Banana Republic, Abercrombie & Fitch, Victoria’s Secret, Tommy Hilfiger and Nike among many more. Upon arrival first head to the Guest Services Booth to get a “Savings Passport” where you find all the discounts. You can also pick up a detailed map of the mall so you won’t miss any stores.

Eric’s Tip: If you’re thinking of buying electronics, you’ll be happy to know that the tax on electronics at Jersey Gardens is only 3.3% which is half of the regular 6.6% sales tax in New Jersey. Also, there’s no tax on clothing.
