A couple of weekends ago, some friends and I visited the just-opened Cincinnati Premium Outlets (it’s really in Monroe, Ohio, about half an hour north of Cincinnati off I-75).
There was the usual collection of outlet retailers, including J. Crew, Banana Republic, Nike and Tommy Hilfiger. But probably my favorite stop was the Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth store. Marni platform pumps and Tory Burch sandals were more than 50 percent off. The handbag department was tiny, but there was plenty of jewelry — both costume and high-end — and loads of designer sunglasses.
One beef we had with the trip was the crowds. Traffic was at a standstill in Monroe. Was it because of the Traders World Flea Market down the road? We couldn’t figure it out. And at the outlet center, a roped-off group of shoppers waited to enter the Coach store, and there was even a line to the building that housed the food court.
But it’s still worth the trip, especially for Saks.
