As the end-of-season sales have been winding down, Larry Label Whore decided to check out the final markdown at Century 21. He stopped into the store at the Bergen Outlets in Paramus, NJ. Here’s what he found:
“First off, the discount for men and women was up to 90% off. Certain racks were up to 85% off, while some were at 90%. I asked a manager if all of the C21 stores had gone to 90% off and I was told it varied from store to store. This was evident because I called the location at the Jersey Gardens Mall in Elizabeth, NJ and I was told they are up to 85% off.
I checked out men’s selection first, but wasn’t surprised to see much of the merchandise was depleted. There were mostly big sizes left from designers like Armani, Just Cavalli, Paul Smith, and Zegna. I figured almost nothing good would be left because the prices before the final markdown were already very low. These brands were the “up to 85% off” ones, while others like Calvin Klein and Under Armour were the “up to 90% off.”
The women’s section definitely had more of a selection and better designers. Some of the brands included Giambattista Valli, Alexander McQueen’s McQ label, and Jason Wu (which Michelle Obama famously just wore on her last day as First Lady). All were up to 85% off.
I peeked at the children’s merch for my nephews, but only found some “up to 90% off” Under Armour stuff for the 7 and under crowd.
I’d say skip the C21 final markdown, but you never know what you may find at any of their locations. Happy Shopping!” -Larry Label Whore
