Pennsylvania!
pretty much what the title says.. I got the flyer but does anyone know any details? It was such a great sale two years ago, still good last year but definitely not that great.

I have not seen the flyer but normally the sale is better in the morning. I think they end the extra 40% off at 11am. I have done well on the mens clothes for my hubby in the past. I don't think they do the extra 40% on handbags and shoes but I could be wrong.

To me the flyer just seemed to be announcing additional markdowns on things already on sale. If that is so, they had that short sale online a couple of weeks ago, then prices went back up. Their current online sale does not have that much stock.

saks quarterly numbers are up, that's why they didnt need to discount that much for ff, and i think the black friday sale will follow suit. didn't see any add'l discount for ppl who get to the stores before noon either.

the store has more selection of course, but the online sale on the 25th should be a pretty good indication if it's worth the schlep to the store the following day.

That sale two years ago was simply amazing! I've not seen one like that since!

^I think that sale was the elusive "white whale." We won't be seeing that anytime soon if at all.

*sigh*

Those were the good ol' days.

Yeah...the one in Beverly Hills was just fantastic. I thought I misheard when they said EVERYTHING on the 3rd floor was 40% off, plus take an addt'l 40% off.

I did hear that Saks actually got in trouble with the designers for marking their items down so low. I'm going to check out the Saks in SF tomorrow to see if I can pre-sale anything good..
