New Barneys Sale Merchandise

When a store starts a sale, you go get what you want and figure that the selection usually gets worse with time. But no. Sometimes sales just get better as time goes on.

Living in a city like New York we are lucky enough to be in the heart of consolidation. It's not out of the ordinary for other cities like Houston and New Orleans to clear out their merchandise and send it to the Big Apple at the tail end of sale season.

The Internet is also a great medium for blasting out product. Take Barneys, for instance. added a bunch of new merchandise to it's site this weekend. Their sale started a few weeks ago but there's lots of inventory that was not there even last week.

These silver python Christian Louboutin ballerina slippers were $950 but are now $380. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that 60% off? There are lots of other 50% and 60% off shoes and slippers to choose from. Take a browse. There's no cab fare or gas usage for trolling online.

I went to Barneys on Madison Ave today and was pretty disappointed. Contrary to their advertising, most of the merchandise is now 50-60% off (I saw little reduced below this) even if it is on its third markdown. Nothing was reduced enough to persuade me to buy. Certainly I saw nothing in the women's store reduced anywhere near 70%, let alone 75%.
