Love coming here once in a while to stock up on big purchase items; trainers, underwear, etc... You can get here really easily from Britomart on the train, about 20 min journey. There are lots of kids, men and women shops to choose from and an adequate food court. We happily spent about 2 hours in there getting what we... More

Dress Smart mall is unique in that it has many outlet stores. So very easy to find an article at a bargain price. Good parking and access.

It seemed like every store we passed had something we wanted to buy inside- at discounted prices as well! I'm visiting from Canada and although I wasn't looking for them, I found many international brand names which was great fun to pursue. Added bonus- much of what we bought ended up being even less than the sticker price with all... More

And it was a very long one! I wanted to see the city which is why I walked. I figured if I was tired I would have been rejuvenated after getting there right? Wrong! I wasn't excited and I'm not sure what others were writing about but the Dress Smart I went to to me seemed overpriced and not great... More

Popped in for an hour and 3 hours later and many bags on hand we left . Lots of variety and mostly good prices. A few shops were on par with usual retail prices and I noticed that some shops had only small sizes. All in all we had a good shop and found some bargains

Good place to come to find discounted apparel, for both men and women. Parking can be difficult to find during weekends, but if you're patient the parking gods generally help. Toilet facilities were average, hand dryer blew but didn't dry hands, and urinals smelled a bit! Other than that not bad!

The shopping center in perfect to find a few bargains. It has an awesome range of shops and is easy to get around the downfall however is that it closes at 5pm it would be nice if it stayed open a few hours after 5.

Onehunga is an old suburb very near Auckland Airport. Great place to spend a few hours while waiting for your flight out of Akl. The mall has shuttle buses to the city centre but it's only twice a day. Best to drive there. Free parking for 3 hours. It's a smart move. 3 hours is definitely enough to walk around... More

I have to put this in context, I am from Australia where our two main outlet stores are DFO and Harbour Town, so am used to these franchises and prices. When I came here last week, Dress Smart had nearly all the similar franchise shops, but found the prices higher on average, so didn't buy much except for a $25... More
