In our article you will find a round up of all the Brisbane outlet shops as well as the factory seconds Brisbane has to offer. What a great way to save on the cost of living in Brisbane!

What does ‘factory seconds’ mean?

Factory seconds refer to items that are deemed imperfect or flawed by the manufacturer and are therefore sold at a discounted price. These products may have minor cosmetic defects such as scratches, dents, or scuffs, or they may have functional issues that do not meet the manufacturer’s standards.

Despite these imperfections, factory seconds are typically still usable and may even perform just as well as their perfect counterparts. Just double check before you buy anything to check if the item comes with a warranty or return policy. Many factory seconds are sold “as-is”so you should be aware of the potential risks before making a purchase

Access to factory seconds doesn’t just have to be for our southern cousins – the Brisbane market is ripe for the pickings! Get in and get stylish for a fraction of the price. Here’s where to go…

1. Brisbane Whitegoods factory outlet

These legends will offer a service and repair service as well as home delivery (within reasonable boundaries). The savings on offer at this factory seconds Brisbane outlet would best be described as ‘ridiculous’. You’ll kick yourself that you paid retail for so long! Check it out here.

2. Direct factory outlet

A little bit of DFO is never enough! This absolute mecca of Brisbane outlet stores, mainly clothing focused, can be found close to Brisbane airport.
