PORT LOUIS, Mauritius — A visitor to the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius could very well think she had died and gone to Ralph Lauren-outlet heaven.
The tiny island — at 1,150 square miles, it’s not much bigger than Rhode Island — has a population of 1.6 million and its beaches attract about 600,000 mostly European tourists per year. Tourists who leave the beach for even a moment are almost guaranteed to spot an "Original" Ralph Lauren factory outlet store — there’s no less than 500 of them on the island.
