Factory Outlets

Factory outlets are shops that claim to sell famous brand names at a fraction of the cost; some are factory rejects, others are fakes so shop with care but you can find nice things if you hunt around.  Good for bargain hunting, but as always watch out for cheats.

Granville Road in TSTAlthough Granville Road, particularly between Kimberley and Cameron roads, is famous for the factory outlets they are actually spread all over Hong Kong and some of the best are to be found in nondescript commercial buildings in Causeway Bay, and other parts of Kowloon than TST.

In Causeway Bay try the Hang Lung Center -- downstairs on the left as you face the lift lobby there are expensive boutiques like DKNY, but upstairs the Factory Outlets rule!  This is a favourite place for rich Japanese ladies to come to do their shopping; you will even see signs on shop doors in Japanese.

If you are in Central on Hong Kong side then check out The Lanes.  More up market in central is Pedder Building -- from the expensive Shanghai Tang in the lower floor to the very fancy "China Tea Club" (which is really a club of sorts, you have to join as a member to eat there) it is one of the oldest buildings in Central.  Upstairs there are a few Factory Outlets.


On the south side of Hong Kong then Horizon Plaza, located in Ap Lei Chau, has some furniture and clothing factory outlets including the "Joyce Warehouse" that sells remaindered items from the famous and very expensive Joyce Boutique. 

The Tourist Board publishes a brochure you can pick up called Factory Outlets for Locally Made Fashion and Jewelry, but of course these are the larger ones that advertise and not the best prices


If you want actual wholesales outlets, where you can buy in bulk for big discounts, then what you needs it the Cheung Sha Wan Road fashion shops. Although these look like boutiques at first they are actually more showrooms for factories and are really the place to buy bulk to stock your own shop!  Some of them will sell retail but for the most part they are catering to people who are buying 10 or 50 units of an item for their own stock.
