Frequently asked questions
Do you have to buy a ticket?
No, in the tradition of a New York sample sale, this Warehouse sale is free and admission is first-come, first-served.
Will it be a mad house?
We control admission flow at the door so all customers have the space to look at all the great merchandise. We promise you an enjoyable shopping experience.
What stores are participating?
The Shoe Hive, Coco Blanca, Mystique Jewelers and Sara Campbell are just a few. For a complete list, visit the event’s web page.
Should I arrive early?
If you want to make sure you get first dibs at merchandise, then yes. Attendees begin lining up at least one hour before the sale starts. We can’t let everyone in at once; we have to observe the fire code so sometimes there is a wait once the doors have opened. Typically, there is no wait for the afternoon hours.
If I come later is there anything left?
YES!! I always tell folks if you aren’t one for the excitement of the crowd, come later. The line and congestion tend to clear up around noon and there are plenty of great items and deals left to be found.
Is there any way to get to shop early?
The Boutique District is giving away a few Shop Early Passes. Details to come soon!
How deep are the discounts?
You will find markdowns anywhere from 60 to 80 percent off. Each store is different, but for all participants these are the best deals of the season.
Are there dressing rooms?
There are no dressing rooms. Wear leggings and a tank top so you can easily try items on over your clothes. The ethic of a warehouse sale is to come prepared.
Do stores take credit cards?
Yes, credit cards are taken on a store by store basis. Cash is accepted but please, no checks.
Where do I park?
This year we are lucky to have two garages opening just for this event! The folks at Colonial Parking are kind enough to open two lots just for us and charge only $5 for the entire day. The lots are located next to the Westin at 2050 Ballenger Ave. and 1925 Ballenger Ave. There is limited metered street parking as well.
What If I Don’t Have A Car?
You can take Metro’s Yellow or Blue line to King Street Station and use the Westin’s shuttle every 15 minutes to the hotel. If you aren’t up for the shuttle the walk is only a couple blocks.
Is there a coat check?
Yes we will have free coat check all day.
Is there any place to eat?
The Westin will set up breakfast and lunch stations where light fare will be available for purchase. There is also a great restaurant located downstairs if you want to get a civilized meal or a cocktail after you are done shopping. Panera, Jimmy Johns, Pasara Thai and Starbucks are right around the corner as well.
