Major brands at Yeoju Premium outlet

Most famous brand labels like Armani, Gucci, Coach, Michael Kors and many more are available at this mall. This is one of the best choices for international brands at a discount in Korea and well worth the trip from Seoul.

Compared to the other Premium outlets in Korea (in Busan and Paju) this outlet has the biggest selection of international designer brands available. To see a list of all brands at the Korea outlet in Yeoju please scroll to the bottom of the page!

Price level at Yeoju

Before going there a word of advice for travelers from Europe or North America, the price in this Korea outlet mall are between 20 and 50% lower than in Korean retail stores.

Unfortunately the price level in Korea – as in most Asian countries – is quite high so do not expect a discount as in a United States outlet. Even the end of season or other special sales events do not offer major additional discounts.

Great alternatives outside Asia: For serious shoppers (think 2 or 3 complete outfits) a trip to e.g. Serravalle or the Los Angeles Desert Hills outlet will actually pay for itself.
In case you want to enjoy the shopping experience or happen to be in the area anyway there is no reason not to check out one of the biggest Korean outlet malls!

Shopping hints for the Yeoju Premium Outlet

  • This Korea outlet is not in an enclosed space so especially in winter it can become quite cold. Please remember to dress appropriately as you will spend some time outside of the shops!
  • There are lockers available where you can store your purchases. The coin lockers are in the food court, between Balonner and Schneeballen.
  • In case you want to make some adjustments on the fly there is a tailoring service offered. You can find it behind the Yves Saint Laurent store.
  • A center map is available at the information counter in the food court. You can find an electronic version under the picture above.
  • International travelers can get their tax back, so make sure to get the tax refund tickets! They are valid for three month. In case you stay longer than that in South Korea, there is no need to bother. Most international shops participate in the tax refund; you can see which stores are offering that on the outlet map.
  • The Yeoju outlet center does not offer WiFi but you can either connect to the internet at the information desk or have a relaxing stop at one of the two Starbucks restaurants.

Best time to visit the Yeoju outlet stores

Get better discounts at Yeoju

There are two big sales, end of season for summer and end of season at the end of the wintertime. You might not get everything in your size as it might be out of stock already. If you have a little patience and are open to what is available, you can make some great bargains though.

When to get the best selection

If you go in the morning, the clothes will all still be hanging nicely on the racks in. If you care more about selection than a small price tag, visit Yeoju at the beginning of the season for a wide selection in styles and sizes.

Have the best shopping experience at the Yeoju outlet stores

You love diving in the crowd and mingling with other shopaholics is half the fun? Come on a weekend or holiday (check their website to make sure Yeoju is open before you leave home). Bring some extra time to sit in a cafe and watch other fashion addicts. (This is actually a great time to improve your feeling for style: Assess the outfits of the people around you. Try to figure out what makes you love or dislike an outfit. How does the outfit go with the body shape and color personality? What fashion personality does that person have?)
If you prefer a quiet shopping experience, avoid holidays, bridge days and weekends.

Fine Leather & Luggage @ Yeoju outlet

Similar to the fashion designers there are some brands you will only find in this outlet. This includes Christian Dior, Fendi, Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent.

The Louis Quatorze outlet can be an interesting brand for international shoppers. Louis Quatorze only has shops in Korea, France and China, the majority of the stores are in Korea though. So for a more local flair you can try and see if they have anything to offer!

Sportswear @ Yeoju outlet

Last but not least we have the outlet brands primarily focused on sportswear. Sportswear is a particularly good example of the discount levels in Asia as compared to the US or Europe. The prices before discount are higher on average and the discounts not as high. So do not expect the same discounts for the big international brands like Adidas, Puma and Nike.
However as with all the other brands the outlet is still one of the best places to shop in Korea.
