in the US, factory outlet is a term that has become much abused and
no longer has its original meaning.

we now have huge malls of "outlets" that are no where near
the factories. if you introduce the term, intending its original
meaning, i can guarantee that in the US at least, it'll start
getting misused to represent these malls.
