At Saks? They're going to drop prices even lower than 75% off retail? Oh my.....what day will that happen?
I was in NYC the day that the extra 40% off of all sale items started and I must say that the merchandise selection was pretty mind blowing. There was a ton of stuff on sale everywhere, and it was all great brands - I almost purchased a Burberry Shearling coat at 75% off of $5000, but had no space in my luggage for such a large jacket. I wanted to pay for it in NY and ask them to ship it to the Toronto store for me to pickup in order to avoid the taxes and duties and to get around the luggage problem, but the SA never got back to me. He hinted that it was possible, as long as there was someone in the Toronto store willing to receive it. Anyway, it was a madhouse at the main Saks store on Fifth Avenue. The crowd at the store here in downtown TO seems way more subdued. I didn't really see many people trying stuff on. I wonder how the store here is actually doing.
PSA for streetwear fans: There was a blue leather Margiela 5 zip leather moto jacket for sale at the downtown Saks for about $700 after all the discounts. It is a size 52 EU. It wasn't there a few days earlier. I'm guessing it was a return.
