If you are lucky enough to be traveling to Branson, Missouri, you will find that if you are making a relatively short stay, you have to pick and choose what to do. Some people come for the dazzling array of shows. Others come for the camping and fishing. Some come for our theme parks and recreational complexes for children young and old. But, lots of people remember that Branson, Missouri is a great place to do bargain shopping.
Begin with Branson’s most popular outlet mall, The Tanger, right of The Strip (Country Blvd. Hwy 76) and right behind the Krispy Kreme shop. The address is: 300 Tanger Boulevard Branson, MO 65615 Telephone: 417) 337-9328. Open Sunday 10:00am – 7:00pm Monday – Saturday 9:00am – 9:00pm
Here are just some of the stores you’ll find bargains from at the Tanger Outlet Mall:

Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store
American Eagle Outfitters
Ann Taylor Factory Store
Banana Republic Factory Store

When you’re finished there, hop over to the Factory Merchant’s Outlet Mall accessible from both Gretna Road and The Strip. The address is: 1000 Pat Nash Drive, A-1, Branson, MO 65616. Telephone: (417) 335-6686. Here you’ll find more bargains from some of the following stores:

Hush Puppies & Family

Socks Galore by Hane’s
Once you have shopped there, head for the strip and the Carolina Mills Factory Outlet. They feature unusual clothing at bargain prices. This is not like your typical store in the mall, but a place where you are likely to find anything. I’ve bought gypsy-style skirts, Harley-wear, and tons of cute tops. I’ve bought lacy thongs and items from the Daisy Fuentes clothing line in there before. For the more conservative crowd there are some very nice matching tops and skirts or tops and slacks and the usual Branson glitz.
The Carolina Mills is a cozy little store that is never the same upon any two visits, the staff members there are ultra-friendly and I’m sure it will be a place you’ll want to return to upon every visit to Branson. It’s also a great place to pick up some inexpensive Branson souvenirs! The address is: 3615 West 76 Country Boulevard, Branson, MO 65616-3555. Telephone: (417) 334-2291
Right across the street from the Carolina Mills is a One Dollar Shop. I recently bought five cute tops there for a dollar each! It’s worth checking out. They frequently have bargain shirts for children and adults and everything really is $1 despite the price tags. It’s frequently a good source of lacy thongs, too.
Before it’s too late in the day, you should hit downtown. Almost everything there closes at 5 p.m. You’ll find another One Dollar Shop at this address: 204 Veterans Blvd, Branson, MO 65616. Telephone: (417) 334-8944.
Right across Veterans Blvd. from the One Dollar Store is well-maintained thrift shop. You might want to hit that one, too, if you like quality used clothing and accessories.
Check out every shop on both Main Street and Commercial downtown. It’s only about four to six blocks of shops, but you are sure to find bargains on unusual items.
There’s one more mall you should check for bargains: The Branson Meadows Mall,officially know as: The Shoppes at Branson Meadows. Address: 4562 Gretna Road, Branson, Missouri 65616. Unfortunately, it is one of the best kept secrets in town. There you’ll find another Dress Barn, Bon Worth’s, and some other stores that frequently have some bargains in clothing and accessories.
Just north of the intersection of Hwy. 6 and Bee Creek Road is yet another “secret” Branson Bargain spot: TJ Maxx. There are excellent bargains on brand names to be found at this store. The address is: 1100, Branson Hills Pkwy., Branson, Missouri 65616. Telephone: (417) 336-9807.
After that, you never know where you might turn up some bargains. I frequently find them in the numerous Branson Craft Malls and at Branson’s IMAX Entertainment Complex, 3562 Shepherd of the Hills Expressway, Branson, MO. Telephone: (800) 419-4832. Branson is a veritable treasure trove for bargain hunters of all kinds. It is possible to make a trip to Branson and do nothing but shop for about three days!
