Is the Hermes Sample Sale Ruined?

September 8, 2010 by Lila Delilah

The famous Hermes sample sale is moving to the sample sale venue, Soiffer Haskin and will take place from September 22 to September 26, according to Mizhattan.

Moving a sale to Soiffer Haskin can only mean two things: higher prices and a smaller selection. You don’t believe us? Just use the Mikimoto sample sale as a case in point. The Mikimoto sale had always been at the jewelry company’s showroom and the discount and selection were always wonderful. Once the sample sale moved to Soiffer Haskin, prices shot up and customers were not satisfied. A year later, the sale moved back home and Mikimoto customers lived happily ever after.

Despite the venue change, we know you are going to want to hit the sale for the best selection. Of course, there is a “private shopping day” awarded to select Hermes customers, on September 21.

Snagging an invitation usually isn’t too difficult. We just suggest contacting your regular Hermes sales person. (This is one store where it pays to be loyal.) If you don’t already have an Hermes relationship, now would be the perfect time to develop one. Yes, this can even be done as a browser. Just don’t show up to the sample sale without an invite. You most likely will be turned away.
