Where can you pick up some fantastic big-name brand bargains in Perth? Read on here!
I love a bargain, but who doesn't? There is just something about the thrill of picking up an item you want or need at a heavily discounted price.
I'm at a stage of life where I loathe paying full price for anything. I will scour the weekly supermarket catalogues for the best deals, shop around for the best price, visit Op Shops and look for bargains everywhere I go. Perth is also home to a number of fantastic discount, seconds and outlet stores where you can find perfectly good products that are at the end of season, are nearing the use-by date, aren't quite perfect to look at or are simply in a damaged box. Here is where to find these magical stores.
