Stephanie’s boutique in Highland Park is the latest retailer to create loads of customer goodwill by offering a storewide sale. Owner Stephanie Morrissey will discount everything from previous seasons 80 percent Thursday through Sunday (May 14-17). The good news is that this is not a going-out-of-business sale. “It’s a way to recognize that times are tough for many of us, so here’s a way to help customers and say thanks,” said Morrissey. The “bad” news is that the merch discounted 80 percent isn’t the same stuff you saw in the store last week. Morrissey is taking clothing and accessories from past seasons for the sale. All premium denim from Citizens of Humanity, Paper Denim, Denim of Virtue and Grass will be $50. For more information, go to my video, available after noon Tuesday, May 12.
Stephanie’s joins other Twin Cities retailers who have run storewide sales including GH2′s famous 90 percent sale, Bibelot’s 20 percent off, Cooks of Crocus Hill 25 percent off, as well as Tatters 50 percent off sale. Those sales were worth the trip and a heckuva lot better than the “Thirty percent off selected merchandise sale.”
Let me know of any more upcoming storewide sales with discounts of 20 percent or more.
