Everyone loves a good factory shop trawl and nothing beats the buzz of getting your favourite brands at crazy reduced prices. But tracking down the very best outlet and factory shops in Johannesburg and beyond can be a bit of mission which is why the WomenStuff team has put together a definitive list of some of the top clothing, furniture, homeware and food factory shops in all of Joburg and beyond. Take a look at our list Top 10 factory shops and outlet stores in Johannesburg below.
1. Coricraft Clearance Store – Randburg
The Coricraft factory store is the ideal place to shop for beautiful Coricraft pieces at a fraction of the price. The stores stocks everything from small decorative pieces to dining room tables, couches and more and they are always receiving new stock. Most of the stock in the store is out of season stock that needed to leave the flagship stores to make way for new collections but you will also find some soiled goods and goods with small marks or scratches on them.
Address: Unit A, Game Complex, Corner Arkwright Avenue and 4th Street, Wynberg
Tel: 011 555 0000
2. Big Blue Clearance Store – Linden
Big Blue is known for their unique T-shirts, quirky products and boho fashions, but unique products like this don’t come cheap! So what is a girl to do? Head to the factory store in Linden that’s what! The Big Blue Clearance store offers a wide range of T-shirts, household items and clothing at huge discounts – sure it’s last season’s stuff but who cares when you’re paying half-price?
Address: 57 Third Avenue, Linden.
3. Sir Juice Factory Shop – Johannesburg
The Sir Juice 100% fruit juices and other drinks are definitely a cut above the rest, the only problem is their supermarket prices aren’t exactly the cheapest in town. Luckily we’ve managed to track down the local Sir Juice factory shop here in Joburg so you can buy all the freshly squeezed juices your heart desires at reduced prices.
Address: Corner East & Gibbs Road, Devland, Johannesburg
Tel: 011 989 7700
4. Lorna Jane Discount Factory Outlet – Strijdom Park
We all adore Lorna Jane’s fabulous sports gear but let’s face it; it takes a long time to save up for just one item from their oh-so-fabulous collections. Luckily for Joburg shoppers, the sports brand has a super awesome factory outlet in Randburg! Pop in for great discounts on tank tops, sports bras, leggings and more and you’ll leave feeling like you’re ready to take on the world. We love that they offer discount sports bra and tank top packs at as much as 40% off so you don’t have to decide on just one favourite when you’re in store.
