For those of you looking for additional resources on saving big in NYC, head to New York Metro’s Guide to Sales and Bargains. Even the most ruthless New York Bargain Shoppers will find the guide, at the very least, interesting reading. That is, if you can get past the ads for Bergdorf Goodman and Diane Von Furstenberg.
A Guide to New York Magazine’s Guide to Sales and Bargains
In Markdown-onomics, author Maureen Tkacik, chronicles the mark-down life of a green blazer at Saks Fifth Avenue ($410 in August to below $100 right before Christmas) and offers this assessment on leopard printed fashion:
There, on a hanger, was a camisole, covered in leopard spots. Leopard print, I realized, is always on sale . . . Year after year, in store after store, animal prints hit the sales racks first and often stay there till the clearance sales.
There are also other sections of the guide worth reading, like a short list on where to purchase items to build a high-tech living room for less and toe-to-toe comparisons of some of the city’s most famous bargain shopping haunts like Loehmanns and Century 21.
