On our drive to Redding, California we made a stop at the Anderson Factory Outlets to check a few things out. We had visited these outlets in the past (about nine years ago) and all the stores were full. This visit was disappointing because a lot of the good outlet stores closed and the stores sat empty. The plus about the visit was I walked to the California Welcome Center while my wife was shopping. When I rejoined my wife we made a couple more stops and some purchases (I got some necessary items for our up coming Asia trip). The busiest establishments at the outlets were the food stops and the cinema. Future trips to the area we will pass on visiting these outlets. I will give this a no vote for a visit.
