If Rent the Runway's first standalone store in Flatiron is a sorority girl's dream closet, then the 160,000-square-foot warehouse store in Secaucus, New Jersey is a sorority girl's dream house. It opened last week and it's the first of the brand's locations where you can buy (not just rent) dresses and accessories year-round.
Inside, you'll find more than 5,000 styles at up to 90% off their retail value, making prices similar to what you'd find at their semi-annual sample sales. Designers include Nicole Miller, Kate Spade, Calvin Klein, Badgley Mischka, Shoshanna, Anna Sui, and many, many more.
And about those sample sales: Staff assures us that they will still most definitely take place, but that the warehouse store "will just offer that sample sale experience year-round with a rotating inventory rather than the more seasonal sample sale styles."
Before you throw caution to the wind and board the next train out of Penn Station, take note: The store (which—fun fact!—doubles as the largest dry-cleaning facility in the United States) only open Thursdays through Sundays, though not on this Thursday, for obvious reasons.
