Le Creuset outlet stores enable customers to purchase Le Creuset products at heavily discounted prices. The products sold in outlets often come from a line the company no longer sells or have a defect. Frequently, the products at outlets come in colors that sold poorly or that the company no longer makes. The benefit to the outlet buyer is that he has the ability to purchase an expensive brand for a fraction of the original cost.
Additionally, Le Creuset outlets often hold special sales or promotions that further discount the prices. Sometimes, the outlet centers housing the Le Creuset run center-wide sales that offer even more money off the price. Because Le Creuset retail stores offer very limited sales and discounts, the outlets benefit customers who want to purchase Le Creuset products but can't afford the retail prices.
Another benefit is that customers can find discontinued products or older product lines that they particularly like but can no longer find in the main stores. Because outlet stores usually carry high volumes of such products, customers can buy several of each product they want and pay far less than the retail price.
Le Creuset sells cookware, dining and entertainment pieces, tools for baking and other utilitarian and decorative kitchen items.
