Each store does have their own return policy so it is up to the customer to review it before making their purchase. Tanger does offer a price guarantee, so if a guest has purchased an item and then finds it advertised anywhere else for less within 30 days, they can bring in a copy of the advertisement and their receipt to the management office and they will refund the difference.
When planning a day at the outlet they suggest viewing their site in order to see what is available. The site will provide guests a list of stores, coupons and special offers, as well as a list of events that are going on during the month. They also recommend making a list of specific items the guests are looking for in order to save time while shopping. The customer service center also has discount coupons, updated store information, and sales and promotions.
The outlet recommends visiting during the week to maximize shopping time, as the weekends tend to be more crowded. They also suggest that guests wear comfortable shoes and clothing that are easy to get in and out of in order to make trying on new clothes more easy. Guests will need to go outdoors to get from one building to the next so it is also important to dress for the season's weather. For the visitors' convenience there are a variety of restaurants, hotels, and attractions near the outlet in Nags Head as well.
They are committed to helping the communities they are in become better places to live and work. Tanger makes charitable contributions primarily in the areas of Breast Cancer Awareness and children's charities. Since 1994 Tanger has given local breast cancer organization over $6.1 million nationally.
