The 411 on Livermore's New Outlets
Get a sneak peek at Paragon Outlets in Livermore, which open November 8.
Prada, Armani, Neiman Marcus, oh my! These are just a few of the 120 outlet stores you can find at the new Paragon Outlets in Livermore, opening November 8, 2012. Located off Interstate 580 where Dublin, Pleasanton, and Livermore meet, the shopping center will offer everyday discounts of up to 65-percent off. You can save serious cash at stores such as Banana Republic, Coach, Kate Spade, Burberry, Gap, Nike, and Michael Kors at the indoor and outdoor shopping center.
Ready your wallets! Paragon’s racetrack loop layout houses one of the largest outlet centers in the greater Bay Area. The food court functions as the center point for the plaza, making it easy to cut through to get to the other side. One side of the center will have children and youth stores including Carter’s, the Children’s Place, Gymboree, Papaya, Quicksilver, Volcom, and Vans. The other will be devoted to luxury and adult brands.
Among these brands are exclusive stores not found nearby, such as the Bloomingdale’s outlet—the only one in California. You’ll also be hard pressed to find Prada, Kate Spade, and Theory outlets anywhere else in Nor Cal. But if you’re looking to shop an array of high-end designers in one place, look no further than the Neiman Marcus. The next closest outlet for the popular luxury brand–retailer is at the Great Mall in Milpitas, which is located roughly 25 miles away. Other Great Mall standbys, such as Armani, Joe’s Jeans, and American Eagle will also now be available in East Bay wine country.
Paragon is also making other long drives for deep discounts obsolete. Instead of driving 65 miles to the Vacaville Outlets, you can now buy a classic trench at the Livermore Burberry outlet. Volcom, Elie Tahari, and 7 For All Mankind, which all required a drive to Gilroy, can now also be found in your own backyard. Rumor has it a few other stores are in the work for phase two.
Ready to spend? The grand opening celebration will be held November 8 beginning at 10 a.m., but will continue all weekend with several center events, in-store sales, entertainment and promotions. Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10, the center will stay open until midnight. 2774 Paragon Outlets Dr., Livermore, paragonoutletslv.com.
Shoppers can enter a grand opening sweepstakes all weekend for a chance to win over $10,000.
