what do you have to do to get invited to the private sales I wonder? I'd certainly go up to the DC and surrounding area stores if they made it worth my while.
Buy something there. Â When ringing up your purchases, the sales clerk will generally ask you if you would like to be put on the store's mailing list (and if he/she doesn't ask, you can always request to be put on the list). Â As a result of my purchases, I have been getting invitations through the mail and over the phone for private sales at Bloomingdale's, Off Fifth, and Barney's New York Outlet.
