Shoppers no longer need to travel to physical malls to buy from outlets because many have opened online stores. Tommy Hilfiger operates an online Company Store Outlet. With an additional coupon often offered by the retailer, a shopper can get 40 to 50 percent off regular prices. J. Crew Factory sells a different line of clothing both at the physical stores and online than the mall J. Crew stores. Even so, the styles of the two store types are very similar.
