Enjoy up to 90 percent discount on out of season stock at this bargain hunter’s wonderland on Silom Road
TUCKED away at the back of the Jewelry Trade Center (Silom Soi 19), The Bangkok Fashion Outlet (BFO) is a gem in its own right.
Owned and operated by the Central Group, one of Thailand’s largest retail conglomerates, this is where out of season stock from Central’s big department stores comes for a new lease of life – and much lower price tags.
Set over three floors, BFO offers discounts of between 30 – 90 percent on over 500 Thai and international brands. Just some of the big names represented include Marks & Spencer, Footwork Void, Minor, SuperSports, The Outlet 24, Giordano, Playboy, Lee, Calvin Klein, Ray Ban, Lacrosse, Crocs, Hush Puppies, Nike, and Umbro.
From footwear and underwear and shirts and suits, to duvet covers, pillow cases, pots and pans, BFO has a wide array of products on offer, and the quality-to-value ratio is impressive.
Umbro football boots which once retailed for B3,190 are available here for B1,276. Lee jeans are almost half price at B990 per pair. And Calvin Klein shirts, once tagged B6,500 each, are a veritable bargain at B3,250, especially when you consider they’re the real deal (not like the dodgy knock-offs peddled down Silom sub sois).
Each shop within BFO offers its own regular promotions, usually resulting in shoppers receiving a free gift when they spend a certain amount. Holders of The 1 Card can also use their card to obtain points, just as they would in a regular Central store.
BFO opens daily 11am-8pm.
