A warehouse sale is one where the retailer sells its leftover stock from the previous seasons or stocks they have too much of some products. You can expect up to 80% off the retail prices at such sales! However, prepare for crowds, products all over the place, limited sizes and long queues at cashiers. Some tips to survive them and emerge with the best bargains:
Tip 1: Timing is important
Getting there early or when the event starts ensure that you have the best selection out of all. The stock has not been messed up yet thus it is easier to find something you want or a size that you need. If you go on the last day, you may get better last-minute deals from the retailer to clear the last stocks, however, the selection will be much lesser of course.
Tip 2: Wear something light and body-fitting
There may not be fitting areas at some warehouse sales, or there may be long queues at the fitting rooms thus you may need to try on the clothing there and then. You can better gauge the correct size if you are wearing something light and body-fitting underneath. Also bring just a small bag with you so that you can hold many items on your arms at one time!
Tip 3: Go with a friend
For the popular sales, there may be long queues at the cashiers. A friend can help you queue while you shop and vice versa. A good friend's opinion will be important to prevent you from buying something that is not suitable for you just because it is such a bargain!
Tip 4: Bring Cash
Just in case they do not take credit cards and also to stay within your budget.
Tip 5: Have a clear shopping list in mind
The sales are so great that you may be tempted to buy more than what you need or want. Stop this by having a clear shopping list in mind.
