The outlet shopping mecca of the Northeast.. The Scene More than 100 stores line Main Street and the adjacent blocks, including L.L. Bean, the outdoors and casual clothing emporium packed with knowledgeable, unflappable sales help; Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store, filled with Manhattanite wannabe preppies looking for bargains; and Abacus, a shop of exquisite crafts, very few of which are discounted.
The Goods You have to look harder and harder these days to find the discounts in Freeport. Trudge to the Gap, Banana Republic and Cole Haan, or you'll be paying full price. Other standouts include Dooney & Bourke, Brooks Brothers, J. Crew, Nine West Outlet and Coach Factory Store.
