Nike Factory Store

There are two Nike Factory Stores in the South Bay Area, one at the San Jose Westgate Center and one at the Great Mall in Milpitas. Both offer a variety of high-quality athletic clothes at discounted prices. The selection won’t include everything Nike sells, but they are great spots to find a deal if you’re not looking for anything too specific. Pro tip: The Great Mall location is much larger and therefore has a wider selection, but the Westgate location is more well-organized, with great customer service if you want to avoid the chaos.


Similar to the Nike Factory Store, the Gap Outlet has locations at both the Westgate Center and the Great Mall. Both locations offer a variety of apparel, including men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing. These are especially popular spots to shop for discounts on jeans and khakis, although some shoppers may struggle to find clothes in the most popular, mid-range sizes. The stores are not always highly organized, but if you have the time to hunt for some hidden gems, you’re sure to come away with a spectacular deal.

Adidas Outlet Store

The Adidas Outlet Store is located at the Milpitas Great Mall. One of the few outlet stores around that is praised for being clean and well-organized and having great customer service, the Adidas outlet provides shoppers with a more relaxed shopping environment than can be found at other outlet stores. The return policy makes returning items super simple, too. Visit the store if you’re looking for high-quality workout gear and hope to avoid paying full price – you won’t be disappointed.

Timberland Factory Store

The Timberland Factory Store is located at the Milpitas Great Mall. The staff is praised for being incredibly helpful, and customers tend to have an easier time finding specific items here than they do at other outlet stores. The store specializes primarily in boots and other shoes, but it also offers a variety of clothing and accessories such as bags and outerwear. Pro tip: If you sign up for the Timberland mailing list, you will get great discount codes sent to your email every few months.

J.Crew Outlet


Shop at the Great Mall’s J. Crew Outlet to get discounts on all of last season’s apparel. The store offers a variety of men’s and women’s clothing, but you may have to scrounge for mid-range sizes. The store is clean and well-organized, so enjoy a smooth shopping experience and save some money on ultra-high quality clothing along the way. Pro tip: Locals claim the men’s selection is better here than the women’s.
