Marques Avenue Talange Outlet Mall near Metz
The Marques Avenue Talange center is a traditional factory outlet mall where most shops are located inside a single shopping center. The mall’s appearance is a bit drab compared to the village concept often used in Europe but it does remind of the factory stores of old where prices were very low and service of lesser concern.
Many of the around 80 boutiques inside the Marques Avenue Talange outlet mall are European and even local companies rather than the major international fashion brands that populate most factory outlet malls in Europe. Major brands include Anne de Solene, Banana Moon, Café Coton, Calida, Desigual, Descamps, Galeries Lafayette L’Outlet, Jeff de Bruges, Jerem, Levi’s, Mango, Pierre Cardin, Salamander, Tommy Hilfiger, Tom Tailor, Triumph, and Yves Delorme Outlet. Delsey, rather than the usual outlet mall stalwart Samsonite, sells suitcases for transporting bargains home.
The sportswear shops are more familiar names such as Adidas, Aigle, Lafuma, Le Coq Sportif, Odlo, O’Neill, Puma, Quicksilver, Reebok, and Salomon.
Non-clothing stores include Black & Decker, Haribo, Home & Cook, and Le Creuset.
