SPARKS, Nev., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Legends at Sparks Marina, the premier shopping and entertainment destination located minutes from Downtown Reno, offers its inaugural set of Legends Lessons – five ultimate tips to help consumers shop even smarter as they save even more on their favorite brands.  

Today's consumers continue to experience and enjoy the designer brand offering, quality and deep savings only found at outlet center shopping destinations.  In fact, according to a recent Gallup report, six in 10 Americans say they enjoy saving more than they do spending.

"Shoppers continue to be amazed not only with the quality and selection of merchandise that today's outlet centers offer, but with the significant savings they find on their favorite brands," said Marketing Manager Samantha Daggett.  "Our tips teach shoppers how to make the most, and save the most, while shopping the outlets."

To make the most of your outlets shopping trip, Legends at Sparks Marina suggests the following Legends Lessons:

  1. Visit the Website: Visit www.experiencelegends.com to learn about the layout of the center, its merchant mix, and special sale events taking place at your favorite stores.  Be sure to join the center's VIP Club and also download store coupons, available only online, for additional saving opportunities.
  2. Check-out Guest Services: Before shopping, stop at the center's Management Office for information about the center's latest promotions and to pick-up an outlet center coupon book filled with even more savings opportunities.
  3. Hit the Racks in the Back: Upon entering a store, head straight to the back to find the best deals!  After all, many stores have their new merchandise displayed in the front of the store and the clearance racks, with the most dramatic markdowns and savings, in the back.  
  4. Read the Tag: Often the price noted on the tag is actually lower than marked.  Be sure to double check store signage and always ask a sales associate if an extra discount applies.
  5. Ship it Home: Never let the size of your suitcase deter you from buying the perfect pair of shoes or designer handbag ever again!  A little known fact about the outlets is that many stores will ship your purchases to your home for a minimal fee.  Whether packing the car or your suitcase, free yourself from the burden of extra packages by taking advantage of this very practical service.
