On Monday, we asked you to send us your best secret shopping tips for a chance to win two tickets to Lucky Shops. And boy did you deliver: We got nearly 40 tips, many of them amazing. Over the next few days, we'll try to pass on as much wisdom as we can, but for now, here's the winner.
The Lester's Warehouse outlet tucked away in Brooklyn carries some of the best designers, from Elizabeth & James to Milly to Tucker by Gaby Basora to Nieves Lavi, and more. If you are looking for 50-80% off retail prices (more often than not, it's 70% or 80% off), then Lester's Warehouse is the place to go!
There are never any lines. Never any crowds. No magic words that need to be mentioned to get a discount because it's already 70% off! All of their inventory is probably last season's stock but they're brand new (not samples or overstock). My trek to this treasured little shop has always been worth it!We ran this by some seasoned shopping experts, and none of them had heard it before, possibly because this particular Lester's is located at 1102-1120 Avenue U in Sheepshead Bay. It seems to be a well-kept secret, which is why we think it deserves the prize. Thanks for playing, everyone, and stay tuned for more secret tips tomorrow and Friday.
