There's no more bittersweet signal for shoppers that summer is coming to a close than the big OPENING CEREMONY clearance sale (Click on the flyer at right) which, like clockwork, is happening this weekend, the last one before Labor Day. As the innovative retailer/wholesaler has become increasingly popular, its offsite final clearance sale has generated more interest and even longer lines. While it bounced around various Manhattan locations for several seasons, the sale has now comfortably settled into a regular location at the Williamsburg, Brooklyn club Villain. While the selection can be hit or miss, the process are usually exceptional, especially on Sunday when they typically get another deep discount. The good news is that the weather looks favorable through the weekend, so make sure to have a good audiobook loaded on your phone.
Although OC tends to cap off the clearance season,that's not the only sale around this week. THE SHOE BOX has taken over 260 Fifth Avenue through the weekend with its seasonal blowout of shoes and more shoes along with apparel and handbags.
