How can you survive the Century 21 shopping experience? Simple! Go only on your cousin’s birthday, stand on one leg, close your eyes, and make sure your name is Edgar. Racked asked fashion writer Mark Ellwood for his expert discount shopping secrets and he came up with a 7-point attack strategy that would impress a Navy Seal. To start:
• Visit in February and August, the prime times for showroom overstock.
• Visit three times a week for two weeks in 15-minute targeted attacks.
• Arrive early (the store opens at 7:45 AM).
• Don’t go to the dressing room; buy mutiple sizes and try them on at home.
There’s more (three points to be exact) but we’re going to show some blogger etiquette and leave the rest to Racked. (Plus we’re behind on our Century 21 shopping by about six trips.) Got any Century 21 shopping tips and/or horror stories? Let us know in the comments.
