Pricing for some items may be less expensive in Bose Factory Stores than in regular retail stores, but not by much, as reported by Consumer Reports and the New York Times. Shoppers have been reported to be dissatisfied by what is perceived to be a high price point at Bose Factory Stores, which are typically found in outlet malls.
The one area where consumers may find lower price points at a Bose Factory Store is in refurbished products. These are products that are pre-owned and have been repaired by Bose. Refurbished products may be available at discounted prices, as stated in the Times.
