There are no January sales in Northampton‘s factory stores.

All the stock gets shipped to the London (and Paris) shops, where they can achieve much better prices.
Stuff unsold is likely to come back to the factory.

I believe you are thinking of the London sales, however that will most likely fall in between Boxing Day and New Year's. Factory sales occur at different times for different companies. None in January.

Didn't see anything about it on the forum...

I suggest you call the factory stores, but I am aware a few will not have January sales. Have not asked the JL shop.

But who knows?

How do their prices at the factory store compare to retail prices in London? Are there usually additional percentage off during sales at the factory stores?
