Following Tropical Storm Isaias, Manhasset, LI is bracing itself for a thunderous Hermes sale. The sale is set to begin Thursday but Madison Avenue Spy has come to learn that priority entrance tickets will be distributed starting on Wednesday at 6am at the Manhasset Mall security entrance.
Once a shopper receives a ticket, they are invited to return at any time during the duration of the sale. Only one ticket will be given to each person. Those who do not receive a ticket can still shop the sale but will need to register at the store once the sale opens. Ticket holders and registered shoppers will be called 30 minutes prior to admission.
This season, in order to accommodate social distancing guidelines, each shopper will be limited to 30-minutes of shopping. Each customer will be required to wear a mask. Masks will be provided for those who don’t have any. (Do you think it will be a special Hermes mask or standard-issue medical grade?)
American Express and cash will not be accepted. All shoppers much have an ID that matches the name on the credit card being used.
Our source was not able to outline what items will be available at the sale. There are rumors that there will not be any silks addition to the standard omission of leather goods. That means no ties or scarves. Most shoppers will gravitate to the shoes, jewelry, and ready-to-wear. Clic-Clac bracelets and enamels tend to go fast– especially when there are no buying limits.
