FACTORY Outlets: Everything a Shopper Could Want

08 Apr 2024

There was a time when people associated both premium and casual shopping in Europe with places like Paris, Rome, and London.

But the times are a-changing and Warsaw is quickly becoming one of the go-to European cities for shopping everything from glistening premium watches and chic heels to athleisure, casual shirts and everything in-between.
And we largely have the two FACTORY outlets— FACTORY Ursus and FACTORY Annopol —to thank for Warsaw’s rising status as a European retail hub. Both spots, which have been awarded the prestigious Superbrands recognition, are located within a quick ride from the center of the city, meaning you can shop-till-you-drop and be back in time for dinner. (Check out more on how to get there below).   
But what’s more remarkable than the desirable locations, is what lays beyond the doors of these retail giants. So let’s take a peek inside…

Everything a Customer Could Want

First things first: these are prices you genuinely cannot beat at 30-70% off everything, along with additional discounts on Super Thursdays. So keep that in mind as you step under the iconic red FACTORY sign, through the sleek glass doors and into the roomy center of the outlet mall. The spaces feature sunny skylights, contemporary décor, plants and of course, retail. There, you’ll find store after store after store of premium, casual, and overall, quality brands at super-discount prices. 
In both Ursus and Annopol, in fact, you’ll find over 200 outlet stores spread out across over 400 square meters of space. Fashion offerings include Boss, Joop! Pinko, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Lacoste, Guess, Marc O'Polo, Desigual, and Gant and Boxeur Des Rues, among others. Jeans are a popular buy here, too, with stores like  Levi's, Lee, Wrangler, Big Star, Pepe Jeans, Mustang and Cross Jeans

If it’s footwear you’re after – be it casual for walking in the park or gorgeous boots and shoes for the office – there’s plenty on offer, as well! Ecco, Geox, Vans, Clarks, Crocs, Salomon, Sketchers and Kazar, Adidas, Nike, Puma, Reebok, New Balance, Asics, and Venezia can all be found in this retail giant.

For those who are more interested in accessories, find beautiful leather bags at Wittchen, elegant watches at Time Trend, sophisticated gold jewelry at Guess Accessories, and much more.

And of course, because it’s springtime, it’s the season for gearing up for summer and warm, outdoor activities – and that’s all at the FACTORY outlets, too: Rossignol, Adventure Sports, Helly Hansen, Trespass, Regatta, Salewa, Jack Wolfskin, and Mountain Warehouse.
Note: it’s a good idea to check the website for brands before you go because the offerings can differ at Ursus and Annopol.

A place to spend the day

Phew – that’s a lot (and it doesn’t even graze the surface of what these stores have to offer in the way of retail)!

But apart from the retail offerings, there is tons to be said about the actual experience of shopping here, as well. Both FACTORY outlets in Warsaw are beloved city-wide for their comfortable interiors, which are adapted to fit everyone from single shoppers, to families, to people with mobility restrictions.

Glass display cases line the space, meaning you can truly embrace the concept of window shopping. Not only that, but remember how we said you can shop-till-you-drop? We meant that literally! There are comfy sofas throughout the space (no hard wooden mall benches, here) with charging points and WiFi for when you simply need a rest.

Young families will be happy to find modern playgrounds along with rooms for feeding and taking care of the littlest children. Plus, widened parking spaces have been installed outside specifically for families with children and prams.

Shoppers with and without children will also delight in the cafes and restaurants that line the space. Stop for a bite of mouthwatering Lebanese food at the restaurant staple, Sphinx, or kick off the whole day with an authentic espresso at So Coffee (or end it with an ice cream at the same spot)

Even grab some tasty gummies at a Haribo store or delectable chocolates at Lindt! You could spend the entire day roaming, shopping and eating here!


Getting there is a breeze

It’s generally the case that getting to a large outlet store can be a hassle – but not in the case of the FACTORY stores. In fact, FACTORY Annopol is the only outlet in the country that you can get to by a quick metro ride.

To get to FACTORY Annopol, hop on the M2 toward Bródno and get off at the Bróno station. Then, it’s just a quick 10-minute walk up Rembielińska Street. You could also go with one of many different tramps and buses that would bring you right to the outlet as well.

To get to FACTORY Ursus, the journey is equally easy. Though you can’t use the metro, there are plenty of trains and buses that can get you almost up to the doors of the outlet. We recommend taking the R3 train from Warsaw Central station and getting off at Warsaw Ursus Północny. From there, it’s just a short, 6-minute walk south.
