The Sanctuary Warehouse Sale

By Suzanne O'Connor

Lately I have been dragging hubby with me to check out new outlets and sales. Not just because I enjoy his company, but because he often has insight into businesses and pricing that I don’t. Especially when it comes to electronics, computers products and grocery.

His coming along with me also helps stop me from buying. Honestly I am at so many outlets, warehouse sales and discounters on a weekly basis that I can, and have in the past over spent. For me, the temptation comes with the job.

But at the Sanctuary Warehouse Sale in Burbank last Saturday, I knew I had to shop it. So, I actually asked him to go somewhere for 40 minutes so I could shop the sale. I wasn’t missing this opportunity when I needed Summer tops.

At the Sanctuary Sale no men are allowed. They hand you a big plastic bag and you go to a section of their air-conditioned warehouse where mirrors are set up and women are in various stages of undress trying on clothing. There’s a good selection with a full size range in dresses, tops, tees, blouses, pants, jackets, tunics and more loaded on many industrial racks. You’ll find first quality, samples, damages and overproduction, in different sections on the rack. But even so, you should inspect each piece.

With my $50 budget, I quickly found 3 sample summer tops at $15 each. These would have retailed between $49-$89. I spent $45, but I saved $137 and was finished within 20 minutes.

This sale happens twice a year and is only a few blocks from the Pom Pom at Home Warehouse Sale. Their next sale is in the Fall. Hopefully the two sales will coincide again.

Having shopped the Sanctuary Sale, I was not gonna go to the Pom Pom at Home Sale.
We then headed to the new Grocery Outlet to check it out. Here hubby shopping expertise was invaluable and he quickly spotted some great deals, which is an additional benefit of bringing him along.

Saved money, got some cool tops and had a great time with my guy. All in all, a great day!
