Discount Shopping in Milano; Foxtown in Switz.

Can anyone recommend discount shops or markets in Milano for clothing, leather shoes, purse (will be there for 2 days, on a Wed. & Thurs). Also, has anyone heard of a shopping mall in Switzerland, near Milano, called Foxtown? What's it like, and what's the best way to get there from Milano?

FOX TOWN (Switzerland)
Via Angelo Maspoli 18, 6850, Mendrisio, Switzerland
Just 2 kilometers over the border from Italy near Chiasso, take the Mendrisio exit from the autostrada that goes from Como to Lugano. Or take the train from Milan to Chiasso, and a taxi to Foxtown. Many important Italian brand names are represented here. Open every day including Sunday from 11 am to 7 pm. Over 40 stores, each one carrying one brand including Gucci, Prada, Nike, Diesel, Irge, Versace, Everlast, Facis, and Iceberg. Stores are operated directly by each brand name. There's a cafeteria-restaurant, and even a casino.

Are the prices in Foxtown comparable to prices in Milan? We'll be in St. Moritz in February and since we've heard so much about great prices on designer clothing in Italy we were thinking about doing a day trip just for shopping. However, Foxtown is closer. Should we go there instead? Thank you.

I have been here before and was not impressed. Maybe I expected something more or different, but I won't go there again.
I think you can do better in Milan.
Prices will be much better than they generally are in Switzerland. All the Swiss come over to Italy and do their shopping here.
This is not to say there is nothing decent in the stores at Foxtown, but I wouldn't travel there just for that.

I agree with the above, give Foxtown a pass. I don't think it's worth the effort.

Public bus from either Chiasso or Mendrisio.
Don't expect too much.
