Those with a fear of crowds should approach the day with a clear game plan.

However, the following tips offer ways to make your trip to Pigeon Forge outlets and other Pigeon Forge shopping destinations efficient and economical, so you'll have to fight the crowds as minimally as possible.

Tip #2 Plan AheadPigeon Forge Tanger Outlets

  • Create a list of what you need to buy. Compare this list to the Pigeon Forge Tax Free Weekend 2014 list of tax exempt items (this list also has helpful information on things like coupons and layaway items) and see what is and isn't exempt.

If you really need to buy a new laptop, stop buy the electronics store first on your Pigeon Forge shopping trip first. If you've had your eye on a new dress at your favorite store, swing by it before you go into other shops.
