So just make sure you look around before buying anything there, I suspect all of it can be found for cheaper.
Yeah some of those prices are insane. Thanks for the heads-up.

Gap outlet does make special stuff. Completely different lines. Way more logo stuff than you would find in a Gap store. jeans are cheaper and thinner. T-shirts are hit or miss. But there isn't a huge difference in quality.

The products in the factory store is great !quality stuff. It is just a different product line than Gap Specialty store. Having worked at both stores I find that factory store product is very fun, wearable, washable and super reasonable. I actaully like the product at Gap Factory better myself.

Gap Factory store is kind of old school Gap, the way I remember it being in the early-mid 90s.


Gap is sort of overrated in terms of quality and shirts that are laundered will generally fall apart within a year or two. The things about gap is it's hit or miss and its also usually quite convenient and has something for everyone.

The only store that I walk out of with multiple items each time I shop there is BCBG.

Just from your description of where you used to shop and that you still wear junior sizes. It seemed like a good fit, and I'm glad you like the suggestion.
