I’ve been writing about shopping and sales for over a decade and I’ve never had such a difficult time creating meaningful content. The health and lives of our loved ones have been threatened by a means we have never known before. It sincerely seems frivolous and senseless to write about shopping and sales as the global economy has lost nearly one-third of its value.
Be that as it may, it’s comforting to maintain as much of our normal routines as possible even as the world seems to have spun off its axis. Sometimes it’s reassuring to see and speak about the things that make us happy. For this reason, I think it’s reasonable to continue our content as usual.
Please know that my heart goes out to those throughout the world. As we are a global economy, I will continue to highlight fantastic retailers far away and close to home. Please feel free to reach out at any time with thoughts, observations, and insights.
The Canadian online retailer, Ssense has added lots of new season merchandise to its site. The highlights are that there are lots of items priced lower than they are in the United States and there is also no sales tax.
For example, this classic double-G belt is $325 from $450 US retail and a mini Gucci Marmont bag is $1295 from $1890 US. Here is a Bottega Venta pouch that’s $2350 from $2700 US retail and the hard-to-get Jacqumus Chiquito is $465 from $630. Other brands with attractive pricing include Commes des Garcon, Loewe and Chloe.
Ssense usually breaks it’s spring sale earlier than most retailers. Be on the lookout in mid-May for serious discounts.
