Must see · Shopping Mall · Shopping
The Mills at Jersey Gardens, originally and also still colloquially called Jersey Gardens and later The Outlet Collection | Jersey Gardens is a two-level indoor outlet mall in Elizabeth, New Jersey. The mall opened on October 21, 1999, and is the largest outlet mall in New Jersey, and much closer to New York City than its largest outlet mall competitor, Woodbury Common. The mall features Century 21, Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Bed Bath & Beyond, AMC Theatres, Burlington, VF, Marshalls, and Forever 21 as its anchor tenants.

The mall was developed by Glimcher Realty Trust and owned and managed by Glimcher until January 2015, when it was sold to Simon Property Group as part of an acquisition of Glimcher by Simon's spinoff Washington Prime Group. Simon owns and manages much of Jersey Gardens' outlet mall competition in the area, including Woodbury Common, and has integrated Jersey Gardens into its "Mills" outlet mall portfolio by renaming it "The Mills at Jersey Gardens".

  • I love The Mills at Jersey Gardens. It's a super mall, featuring signature fashion brands, and exquisitely placed in the Jersey Gardens. The layout of the Mall aids accessibility to the many shopping outlets. I also love that the food court is at the middle level. I didn't have the time to explore all areas, but I saw enough to be really impressed! Keep it up, guys....
  • Great stores. I’d love to stay and shop and spend more.... However NOWHERE to sit when you need to take a break from shopping. I currently have a brace on my ankle and generally get around fine with it. But I’m leaving without spending as much as I would because there’s just nowhere for me to sit and rest. The food court is full, too. I’ve been in malls in 35 of 50 states and probably half a dozen countries and this is the first place that didn’t have one single solitary bench to sit on for five minutes. It is for this reason alone I CANNOT recommend this place. I’ll take my money to a place that has a few amenities and comfort...
