    Hello Renetta,

    I think here an outlet is a retail unit. What was once an industrial zone has been redeveloped as an area filled with shops.

    Edgy isn't describing the outlets - rather what they sell. Things which are "on the edge" - a breakaway from the usual.

    Dictionary.com defines "edgy" as -

    Daring, provocative, or trend-setting: an exhibition of edgy photographs; an edgy menu.

    For example, you might find a shop selling nothing but postcards of naked men or women. Or "New Age" items such as 'healing crystals', aroma-therapy oils, books on meditation, figures of fairies and wizards. (I must admit this type of stuff isn't quite so "edgy" now in the UK, but it was once considered to be so.)

    You can also find "edgy" fashion. Clothes which 'buck the trend' and look rather bizarre. Worn by the young who wish to shock!

    Is this any clearer for you?
