Fodor's Expert Review Dress-Smart
With more than 70 factory outlets, this is the place to go for high-quality, low-priced goods. You'll find books, music, children's toys, bags, jewelry, and housewares. Expect to pay 30%–70% less than regular retail. Take the inexpensive shuttle service (0800/748–885), or, if you're driving, take the Penrose turnoff from the Southern Motorway and follow the signs to Onehunga. This is the heart of Auckland suburbia, so a detailed road map helps. Dress-Smart is close to Onehunga Mall, which has interesting antiques shops.
