WHAT IS A SAMPLE SALE?04/3/2012
The term Sample Sale originally meant a sale of designer’s samples. Samples are what designers use to show their collection to buyers and owners of retail stores. At the end of a season, the designer no longer has a need for these samples. So, once or twice a year they sell the samples to the public, where they usually would be sold at wholesale prices. Usually, the selection would be limited in pieces and sizes.
Today, many of these designers have taken this one giant step forward… Stock Sales. After a manufacturer has shipped their merchandise to their stores, there is usually inventory leftover. This leftover merchandise is often supplied to us, to be featured in one of our stock sales. Our Stock Sales are open to the public, where you can find the latest fashions, from the top designers at savings from 50% to 80% below retail prices.

There are some companies like Clothingline that run sample sales year around; however there tends to be more sample sales in the Fall and Spring.
