Since our earlier report on the Marc Jacobs sample sale drew plenty of comments, we thought it a good idea to check out the scene Thursday evening.
The line was fairly short. We waited just 5 minutes. Inside, it was fairly chaotic with shoppers rummaging through the racks. With a lack of dressing rooms, customers set themselves up in front of the mirrors on one side of the space where they tried on what they could.
Pricing is still the same 80% to 90% off retail.
The handbags are now being kept inside a small room toward the back where a staffer was there to assist. They’re all from the Marc Jacobs Collection. The photo shows what was available when we were there. At 90% off retail, there were a number of novelty bags and exotic skin (discounted at $225-$600). There were also a couple of exotic skin styles of bags behind the register area. No more Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags downstairs.
A staffer told us that they had restocked this morning but “all the best bags” had been snapped up within hours of them putting them out. She advised us to check back tomorrow.
There’s still a lot of clothing left for women. Men’s merchandise has thinned out. It appears that they are restocking. Let us know if you stop in and what you find.
