Not-Philadelphia Premium Outlets
I received an e-mail from J Crew today announcing their factory outlet in Philadelphia. I was immediately very excited, they’re one of few places that makes clothes that actually fit me properly and generally disgustingly overpriced. A factory outlet nearby would be perfect!
Then I read more closely. The Philadelphia Premium Outlets are actually in Limerick, PA. Not only is the name terribly misleading, they go on to say they’re approximately 35 minutes from downtown. That’s quite the approximation, the only way one could get there in 35 minutes is if it were 3:00 AM. The way 76 jams up the realistic travel time is much closer to an hour and a half. At that point it may make more sense to go the extra 20 miles to the Jackson Premium Outlets near Six Flags instead.
My excitement is now squished.
