Florida Guide > Shopping
Marshall’s is an outlet style store with branches through out the Orlando area and also States wide. Similar to TJ MAXX but a bit more upmarket and quality items are found in Marshal’s in my opinion. It is I believe part of the TJ MAXX group as it is very similar, although the items seems to be more expensive and maybe more quality than TJ MAXX and most definitely better than Ross Dress for Less.
Marshall’s is often very busy and sometimes the queues can be long! However if you are a true shopaholic and bargain hunter as I am you can just about put up with this. It is a good tip however to leave kids and partners behind!
It is also best to try to visit early and not on a weekend, especially Sunday’s. If you go to the branches in the tourist areas like the 192 be prepared for it to be busy most of the time. The opening hours are good though and it is open until 9 pm every day except Sunday where it closes at 6 pm. For November and December some of the stores are open until 11 pm because of the holiday shopping!
Inside the store you will find various departments including:
Handbags: Small section of handbags, nothing exciting but you may be lucky and find something that suits. The don’t generally stock luggage.
Shoes: Very very good selection of shoes in all sizes, again designer names can be found occasionally, I have seen the likes of Anne Klein, Ralf Lauren, DKNY to name a few of the more well known names. Also branded trainers like Nike, Reebok and Addidas. (Check with the branch you are planning to visit as not all Marshall’s have the full shoes section like this).
Accessories: Hair decoration, belts, sunglasses, hats etc..
Toiletries: Very small selection of bubble baths, bath salts, moisturisers, perfumes sometimes the like of Gucci and Versace particularly around Xmas time, they get the gift box selections in. I recently saw Gucci, Bvlgari, Marc Jacobs, and Dior, Very unusual to find goods like this in outlet stores are they are normally sold in licensed stores only.
Ladies Wear: Absolutely everything you would imagine in all sizes as they have a plus section also, every one is generally catered for.
Children’s wear: Normal thing, infant and baby wear.
Men’s wear: Good selection of men’s clothing, including sports wear with the likes of Nike, Reebok, and Addidas.
Teens: Good selection of the latest fashion to keep Missy and Master happy!
Jewellery: Some costume and some of hall marked silver and gold at decent prices. gift. They also sell some nice watches. Jewellery boxes in many shapes are also a good price, available for both women and men.
Home wares: Decorative items for every room in the house from lamps, throws, furniture, mirrors, cutlery, crockery, glassware, saucepans, curtains, and curtain poles etc.
Bedding: Comforter sets (Bed in a Bag), sheets, pillow slips, cushion, pillows. Duvets, covers etc.
Towels: in every size and colour and some time designer names such as Hilfiger and Ralf Lauren.
Pictures and wall art.
Books: Only a small selection. Also lots of nice stationery.
Food items such as Candy, cookies, coffee, tea and spices. They stock lots of things from different parts of the globe. These items make nice gifts!
Defiantly worth a visit at least once especially if you are looking for something that little bit nicer.
