I started lining up for the sale a little after 5:30 PM, and I probably waited for an hour in the rain. Once you step inside, they ask you to put your umbrella on a shelf to the right and check your bag (grab your wallet before you check everything in). If you have a nice umbrella, I would try to put it with your purse—when I was heading out, this girl couldn’t find her Burberry umbrella, and the staff was pretty much like someone must have stolen it (*shrug*)…I felt so bad for her! Who would steal someone’s umbrella…that’s really mean!
I actually prefer the old location. The space this time is big, but it was so dark you could barely see what color things were or if they looked good. There’s a lot of merchandise, but you have to dig for the lower priced items. The bins had a good variety of sizes (XS to Large). I overheard some girl next to me saying she could only find XS in the bin she was digging through, so after she was done I went through it and found a cute simple white tank for $35. I also found this Cami Tank Dress in a peachy color, but I ended up putting it back because it was just too tight…need to get rid of the stomach first. (They also have a long version of the dress.)
Check out Racked NY for great details on the pieces available and the prices. They reported a minimum on credit cards, but according to the staffer I spoke with, there’s no minimum.
They made an announcement that you had be in line to pay by 7:15 PM and the line was insane (cash line was much faster)! While waiting in the long line, the Brenda bag (whitish-gray color) called my name. I was standing right next to the rack of bags in the back room, and I couldn’t resist. I don’t know if I should keep it, but I have it for now :P
Since I was there while they were closing up, I overheard the staff talking about putting together a RTW bin for $70 or $80. I’m pretty sure they’ll slash prices as they get closer to the end of the sale. Let us know if you score anything awesome!
Waiting in the rain :P
Boxes of goodies!
Cleaning up the madness
Still shopping while waiting to pay
