Cold, impatient line waiters outside Barneys Co-op this morning
A Racked reader has some sage advice for Barneys Warehouse Sale shoppers:
Hey. I used to work in an office in the Barney's Co-op building (the building actually takes up a good portion of the block, and Barney's owns the whole thing) and I have a potential tip for mastering the warehouse sale. The head of maintenance for the building once told me that Barney's replenishes inventory throughout the sale, even until the last days, and it's not necessarily the case that the best stuff goes out first. He would recommend waiting a couple of days into the sale, definitely on a weekday, and getting there around 10:30-11am. I never took him up on the advice, since at the time I was on too tight of a budget for even the warehouse sale. Luckily, I left that job for a better-paying one and I will be heading over to the sale Monday morning for sure.Hm. Would daily AM Barneys Warehouse Sale reports be overdoing it?
