All I can say is WHEW. Â Once we finally found the JCrew Clearance Store in Arden NC, we were astonished at the amount of clothing on sale. Â And the prices. Â Which were an extra 20% off, not marked but with a coupon.
This is not the sale for everyone. Â It wasn’t even the sale for me. Â Although several of my friends managed, with a bit of grumbling, to snag a dozen or more pieces for less than $10 each.
You can see from the photo, it a big warehouse filled with box after box of clothing. Â Not ordered in ANY way by size, season, condition, price. Â Just boxes to dig through relentlessly and endlessly. Â (Except the formal gowns, which were hung on racks. Â And a very paltry jewelry selection on a table near checkout along with a box of about 4,000 headbands).
But my, oh my, if you like to dig for your bargains, this is SUCH a trip. Â The clothing is primarily sample sizes along with some damaged pieces and some from prior seasons. Â Mostly small Ladies sizes (2-6). Â Almost all of the men’s pieces were in Men’s Small or Men’s Size 32 and the selection in this men’s size was phenomenal. Â And lots and lots of little kids clothing from CrewCuts, in sizes 2-6.
For an idea of the prices, kids pieces ranged from $5 to $10 each. Â Ladies and Men’s same prices – $10-$15 for pants, $5-10 shirts, $20 dresses ($30-$50 formal & wedding gowns), $10-$30 sweaters, $20-$30 blazers, $40-$50 winter coats. Everything was an extra 20% off. Â Most items were in good condition altho many had to be checked for black indelible marking as well as cut outs.
This warehouse-type sale is held ONCE PER MONTH. Â There is also a BIGGER, “BETTER” warehouse sale here twice a year, usually August and December but exact months/dates TBD. Â The JCrew Clearance store is also at this location. Â It is open all the time with mostly this season sale items. Â Great buys, not as deeply discounted but so much more pleasant to shop. Â And with the discount for 20% off, some very good prices. Â The pics below are of the Clearance store, NOT the warehouse sale.
