Happy August! The final full month of summer in New York City typically sees offices and streets that are much quieter, as the masses make exodus to shore points. What does that mean for those of us stuck here? Fewer crowds shopping the dozens of summer clearance sales going on right now.
Below, we've rounded up 39 in-store sales, from some of our favorite boutiques like Electric Nest and International Playground to the big department stores that are now offering up to 75% off top designer pieces.
