Argentineans love shopping and Buenos Aires especially is filled with a huge number of shops that cater to every possible wish. If you want to save some of your hard earned cash to enjoy other aspects of Argentina as well, a visit to the best Outlet Shopping districts in Buenos Aires is well worth your time.
Shopping in Buenos Aires is normally fairly straightforward. You have the busy central pedestrian mall of Florida, the designer labels in Palermo Soho and the huge shopping malls spread around the city, such as Abasto, Alto Palermo, Dot, Unicenter and all other goods are often confined to one street or a few blocks where shops that sell the same products group together.
A lot of people know of Murillo street in Villa Crespo where you have around three blocks of door to door shops that sell leather goods, but there is also Avenida Warnes where all autoparts vendors group together or Puerreydon between Avenida Corrientes and Avenida Rivadavia where you can get cheap imitations of almost any famous brand in the world from Lacoste and La Martina to Ray-Ban sunglasses.
At the intersections of Gurruchaga and Aguirre streets (on the borders of the Palermo and Villa Crespo neighborhoods) however is the heart of a few blocks that house outlet shops of international brands such as Nike, Puma, Lacoste and A&F but also most of the local favorites from Ona Saez to Rapsodia and from Bensimon to Kosiuko. Here you will find high end clothing without breaking your bank.
A second large outlet center is located around the intersections of Herrera and California streets in the southern district of Barracas, almost below the 9 de Julio highway. This one houses stores from brands such as Levi’s, Cardon, Hush Puppies and Christian Dior among many others. Enough to keep you happy for a few hours on one of those rare cloudy days and of course all are open on Sunday afternoon as well. Enjoy!
