Outlet shopper Karen Wisentamer says outlet centers are full of bargains - if you know how to find them. "You have to know how to shop and you have to know quality," said Wisentamer, 44, of McLean, Va., on a break from a recent shopping trip at Blue Ridge Outlet Center in Martinsburg, W.Va. Her best advice: be patient and go with a specific purchase in mind. "Don't buy on impulse," she said.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - One of Martinsburg's most well-known attractions has faded into history. After 16 years of attracting shoppers with more than 50 outlet stores set in an attractive backdrop of restored woolen mills, the Blue Ridge Outlet Center has closed. Moncure Chatfield-Taylor, owner of the complex, is often praised for his vision of turning the three buildings that once housed the woolen mills built between 1900 and 1930 into outlet stores. The buildings were basically ready for the "bulldozer," according to Mayor Earnest L. Sparks, but Chatfield-Taylor saw something different.
