Although there is an outlet mall at Gulfport (I-10 intersection with Highway 49), it's terrible. It does have a Sak's 5th Avenue outlet but nothing that great. My family lives all over the MS Gulf Coast, and they all come to Mobile to shop. Shopping is the pits over there. Except for DeeDee's dress shop (formal wear) in Ocean Springs.

The outlet mall in Foley, which I think is pretty good. There is a big outlet mall(pretty good) east of Destin, but Foley's is closer and better. I'm not familiar at all with Pensacola.

For shopping, Mobile and Pensacola will be pretty much the same. I live an equal distance between the two cities, so it's usually a toss up for which one I will go to.

Bama's Port, I didn't know about the Costco. Thanks for letting me know.

Default better, destination shopping in mobile?

What about if you want to spend a nice day cruising shops that are nicer than the ones you mentioned...is there a fabulous section of mobile where you can shop boutiques and have lunch in a cafe..etc? Not discount shops, but a really fun afternoon out, shopping an upscale area of town?

Eastern Shore Centre, located at I-10 and Malbis Plantation Pwky, is a pretty good upscale shopping center. If you don't want to drive all the way to Spanish Fort, there is a smaller upscale lifestyle center located in the Springhill area of Mobile called Legacy Village. Legacy Village and Eastern Shore Centre feature many of the same higher end retailers.

I haven't lived in Mobile for several years, but as far as thrift stores there use to be an America's Thrift Store in the west Mobile area that was my favorite. Not sure if it's the same as it use to be or if it's still even there but it's worth a look if it is.
