EDWARDS LUGGAGE OUTLET
Great Mall of the Bay Area, Milpitas.
(408) 934-9559. Daily. MC, VISA, AE, DIS. Parking: lot.
Edwards puts on a new personality with this clearance outlet, a fun, high-energy store in keep-ing with the Great Mall's orientation. Customers love the mock airline cabin with seats and over-head bins. The focus is on travel everything: a variety of luggage, attaches, travel aids (security, passport cases, personal accessories, etc.), games, maps, and books. Discontinued inventory from its posh full-price stores—agendas, business cases, computer bags, and women's small leather goods—are sold at 20-50% off original retail. Better brands of luggage such as Hartmann, Tumi, Lark, and Samsonite are 30-50 % off retail on seconds, overruns, and discontinued colors.
2 Oil's Street (at S. Van Ness and Mission), San Francisco.
(415) 552-3188. M-F 9:30-5:30, Sat Noon-5. MC, V7SA. Parking: street/pay lot off Brady Alley.
The emphasis here is on high-end, long-lasting handmade travel gear that costs a lot, but less than comparable lines sold in status stores. Glaser's handsome travel and custom-finished leather/fabric garment and stadium bags cost $500 to $700; packing cases are in the $400 to $500 range. Customers have inspired innovations like the "insiders"—stretch-proof nylon mesh containers to organize travel goods. Business travelers also appreciate its Traveler's briefcases, which double as computer bags ($700 to $800). Garment bags are designed to "stand" when folded so that they won't collapse on your garments. You'll find a few seconds year-round, but most customers are willing to pay premium prices for the regular merchandise and feel the quality/price/value ratio is reasonable.
