No discussion of the Monroe NY area could be complete without mentioning the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets.
The outlets are located on 498 Red Apple Court in Central Valley, NY, a mere 10 minutes from the center of Monroe, and right off the NY State Thruway (exit 16). This is such a popular destination that there are also buses available from the NY Port Authority, Newark airport, east Manhattan, and other locations.
So what is it?
The Woodbury Common Premium Outlet center is a shopping oasis. The Outlet contains 220 different stores which include Coach, Armani, Nike, Prada, Saks Fifth Avenue, American Eagle, Brooks Brothers and more.
It occupies more than 800K square feet and is color coded so visitors won’t get lost.
In addition, because people visit from around the world, the center includes a staff of interpreters, and there are foreign shipping services and currency exchange services available at the center. In addition to English, guests are greeted in languages including Spanish, French, Japanese and Portuguese.
