Sample Sale Season Shopping Tips

Filed Under: Zannee’s Tips, Fashion, Sales,

It’s here. The Fall Sample Sale season tends to start with Columbus Day, hitting full swing on 11/15-12/20. Everyone is trying to unload past season’s samples and overstock. It’s a mega season of Sample Sales, Warehouse Sales and bargains!

This season will have hundreds different manufacturer Warehouse & Sample Sales including designer & brand name brand clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry, furniture, linens, electronics, lighting and even toys all at 40-95% below original retail.

During the season we get advanced notice for many sales, but last minute notices too. So checking with our Hot Sales page daily will give you the most current information.

The discounts at these sales are real and lower than any sales at department stores or boutiques, or even online outlets.  Buying from designers and local manufacturers means you’re skipping the middleman mark up.  Manufacturers can afford to discount to below their costs, and happily sell at a loss, just to free up space. Which means unbelievable deals for you and me.

The hard part is choosing what sales to go to. You can easily rack up serious debt and blow your budget with the great deals available at these sales. Set a budget make your “want” list & your holiday shopping list before you get started.

Shopping for people you are unsure about? You may want to stick to off price outlets where you can return product. Though sales like Zodax Warehouse Sale and DL & Company have great gifts for business acquaintances, teachers and neighbors.

Shopping the Fashion Sample Sales? Don’t forget to know your own measurements and the size and measurements of those you’re buying for.  Most don’t allow try ons and there are no returns at Sample & Warehouse Sales.  A retractable measuring tape is a must at these sales.

Shopping for furniture? Know the room measurements, door and elevator measurements. Color swatches are good if you have them. Or at least a picture of the room for your phone. At Warehouse Sales, all sales are final.

I like to be finished with most my Holiday shopping before Thanksgiving. Allowing ample time to shop just for fun during prime holiday shopping… or not.

No matter how you like to shop, the season has started.

Now, go sic ‘em!
