Really, Barneys? All that mourning was for naught? The department store has just announced the return of its warehouse sale to Metropolitan Pavilion, and it's soon. As in next week. As in Thursday, August 21st.
Maybe we shouldn't be so quick to get excited—this year, they're only offering up to 60% off men's and women's designer clothing and accessories, and last year, it was up to 75% off. And the stock wasn't as legendary as past years for women. Men, however, had plenty to go through, and even got a a refresher of merchandise midway through the sale. But there weren't any markdowns on anything.
The sale kicks off at 8am and runs through Labor Day. Tell us—will you be stopping by?
