Visitors to the Petaluma Village Factory Outlets can enjoy great bargains on name brand and designer merchandise. The outlet center is a large outdoor shopping plaza and features stores selling clothing, handbags, shoes, toys, home accessories and more. Visitors can shop at Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th store, Coach, Ann Taylor Banana Republic, Bose, Brooks Brothers, BCBG Maz Azria, Jones New York, Nike, Levi's and more. Those who enjoy shopping would have no trouble spending an entire day browsing the stores and shopping for discounted merchandise that, in most cases, can no longer be found in their favorite department stores. The outlet center offers a number of sales and special events throughout the year. Typically, stores take part in center-wide sales events and sometimes even move into the courtyard area for special sidewalk sales. Visitors to the area can stay nearby at a number of hotels including the Best Western Inn, the Bodega Bay Lodge and Spa, the Embassy Suites, and the Courtyard Marriott. Many of the hotels in the area off stay and shop packages, which feature discounts on accommodations and coupons for the outlets. Group visits to the outlets are encouraged to contact the management office in advance for a special discount coupon book.
