Citadel Outlet - LA's Premier Outlet Shopping Destination

Outlet shopping is always a great way to find your favorite designer items at major savings.  I am a huge fan of outlet shopping, and having one only a short drive away from home can be dangerous!!! Last week I was invited to LA's only outlet shopping center, Citadel Outlet in the City of Commerce, CA for a VIP event.

The Citadel Outlet has been around for many years, opening up to the public in 1990.  Formerly it was home to Uniroyal Tires and started off as tire & rubber company in 1930.  If you are a LA native like me, then you are no stranger to the Citadel building. It's a huge building right off the 5 freeway in the City of Commerce, CA resembling an Assyrian Palace.  Growing up we just called it the castle.  Now its LA's premier outlet shopping destination.  Honestly I had not been there in a few years, because truly the stores were not too appealing and the parking was horrible.  All that has changed with the completion of a multi-million dollar renovation and hundred thousands of square footage in retail space. Along with additional dozens of stores, and a new parking structure which can accommodate up to 501 cars.

I was very pleasantly surprised how nice the Citadel looks now and all the top-name retail stores available. The parking was a breeze, since they also offer valet parking for a mere $5 and is located a short walk away from the shops.

We were also given a tour of the Citadel VIP Lounge, where the elite shoppers can enjoy a luxury area to rest and relax from all the shopping.  Some of the special VIP Lounge features include, free Wi-Fi, storage for  your bags and luggage, TV's, complimentary beverages and light snacks.  It really is a nice and special touch for VIP shoppers with concierge services included for out of town guest.

With many great stores recently added, it makes this a must stop shopping destination.  All the stores are nicely stocked and brightly lit.  I made my rounds and visited a few of my favorites, the staff are very nice and friendly.  The list of stores is too many to list but you can go here to see the entire directory.

The Citadel also a offers a VIP Savings Card, where selected retailers will give cardholders additional savings.  On your next visit to the Citadel Outlet make sure to get yours at the Customer Service Center. You know I got my VIP card, since I am the queen of bargain shopping!

So have I convinced you to go visit the Citadel Outlet? Well here is a little more motivation, with the Outlet Express Shuttle. Yup, there is a shuttle that will take you to Citadel Outlets from various hotels in Anaheim. You can sit back and enjoy the ride, saving your energy for all the awesome shopping.  No need to worry about traffic, for $16 round trip you can leave the driving to someone else. This is especially convenient for tourist or the holiday season, which I plan to take advantage of for my holiday shopping.  Want more info on pick up locations and times go here

Thank you to the Citadel Outlet staff for a great day.  It was nice to get the VIP treatment and learn about all the new renovations.  I will definitely be returning to Citadel Outlet for my shopping needs.  You know I can never pass up a good shopping adventure!

  1. The watch was engineered specifically for the Oracle. The Swiss replica watches uk has accompanied the famous annual event for classic motorcars as its official replica watches and a partner since 1988 and has released a new limited edition Mille Miglia watch collection each year. These versions differ in their finishing. For the swiss replica watches collection, the designers chose a vintage appearance in harmony with the look of the race for classic automobiles. All three calibers are integrated chronograph rolex replica uk with column wheel control and flyback function, 60 hour power reserve and chronometer certification. The color for the central elapsed seconds hand, which, as is essential for motorsports, sweeps along a tachymeter scale on the flange. The replica watches uk here are applied excellently and are, therefore, easy to read.

  2. The 1965 rolex replica sale had a chromium plated brass case and plexiglas crystal, a bidirectional rotating bezel, and a black plastic strap, while the new version has a more contemporary. With rado replica variety of three different aluminum inlays for the bezels, and the ability to have them swapped. The new black and blue model that replica watches introduced at this year Baselworld is a handsome version, but I still prefer the green model, the blue color probably has to grow on me. Since there are so many of them still around, you can pick one you really like with rolex replica sale and hour markers or ones that are still white and fresh in a good, wearable condition. You will be able to see with your own eyes how precise and committed the watchmakers of Grand Seiko and replica watches on the most beautiful watches.
