BARNEY'S SALE in NEW YORK CITY
Okay... I wasn't going to go, but then I had to see the difference between the Santa Monica Airport and the New York sale on 17th Avenue is. Well, let's analyze SUPPLY and DEMAND. In Los Angeles, tons of people shop there, but there never seem to be any deals. I just recently bought a coat for $75. It was, I think $500 or $400 minus 75% off. I was able to purchase my size, but when I looked for shoes and other items, everything was still expensive. For example, a shoe, which was $385 was marked down to $155. After that, you can take an additional 25%, which comes out to $166.25.
In New York, all the items that have the "Barney's" tag are an additional 90% off. I couldn't believe my eyes, nor my MATH SKILLS that I had to ask a cashier if I was hallucinating. So I got the green coat for $19.90 and the black jacket for $19.90. The total is 39.80, and I DIDN'T HAVE TO PAY TAXES. What a steal!!!! There were tons of jackets and coats in New York, but only a few were thrilled. In Los Angeles, people just purchase the item at any cost.
Anyway, sizes were limited, but they were a steal. If anything, you could probably purchase it and directly sell it on EBAY. I'm sure SOMEONE will buy it (SUPPLY/DEMAND/CONSUMERISM).
