This week, second markdowns topped the news. Almost all designer brands are on the sale list and have been reduced at least twice. (Chanel and a few other brands are still the exception.) At all of our department store’s spring and summer clothing is discounted 60% off but the prices of shoes and handbags vary greatly.
Take note, some boutiques offer even lower markdowns than the department stores. Never discount the benefit of comparing the sales of department stores with boutiques. Below is a comparison chart of Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue.
