This is a wonderful outlet shopping center in the heart of Los Angeles. The Citadel looks like a museum from the outside with its sandy Egyptian fortress façade, but inside it is a shopper`s heaven. Featuring largely apparel it is also has specialty shops selling everything - kitchen supplies to toys. As Los Angeles` only outlet center within city limits, it has at least 85 brand-name stores with 30 to 70 percent off regular prices. A fairly large shopping complex with most top names in retail clothing, books and more the Citadel Cafes food court is exciting too. With adequate parking the Metro is also a good option. It remains Southern California’s larger factory store malls where shoppers can find bargains at Ann Taylor, Calvin Klein, Guess, Levi`s, OshKosh, Tommy Hilfiger and many more. With numerous other outlet shops there are eateries including Ruby`s, burger joints and a 1940`s-style diner.
