Gymboree Outlets operate in a somewhat unusual manner to usual retail stores. Generally the items for sale in your usual retail outlet are overstock or may have some sort of cosmetic defect, however, at a Gymboree Outlet, most of the items on offer have been developed for sale specifically in an Outlet store. The products on offer may be, for example, remakes of previously popular collections with different colours and pieces, so you can ‘mix and match’ items from the Outlet and regular store to help your clothes last longer and represent better value.
User comments on the quality of gymboree outlet clothing varies; some say the level of durability is not as good as clothes from regular Gymboree stores, others say the opposite. Either way, some users report that Gymboree will replace any items that have shrunk or have worn quickly with ‘no questions asked.’
Gymboree Outlets quite often have a ‘sale’ area where you can pick up even greater discounts on outfits and accessories. You can quite easily pick up a whole outfit for the price of a regular single t-shirt in a normal Gymboree store.
You can earn ‘Gymbucks’ at Gymboree outlet, but unfortunately you are not able to redeem these within the Outlet itself. If you are a Gymboree Reward Card Member, the coupons you receive over email or via the website can also be used at the outlets, so sign up online for further discounts. At Gymboree Outlet stores, you are also able to place phone orders.
