It is best to arrive at Prada before it opens at 9.30. At the door you are handed a ticket which is the ID you use to set aside all your purchases. Anything you think you might want to buy you can give to a sales assistant who will store it for you. At the end you have a second chance to look at everything calmly and make your final selection. Do not bother going on weekends, public holidays or during the peak sale periods (when the best old stock is sent to the stores). As with all outlets, it can be hit or miss, sometimes you will be lucky and other times you will not find anything worth buying.
