As we feared, the LA leg of the Barneys Warehouse Sale is no more. We just received this official statement about the decision:
As part of our digital strategy to create a true omnichannel experience for customers, Barneys New York has brought the Warehouse Sale online this August. The exact launch date has not yet been announced. To accomplish this and allocate appropriate levels of inventory to the digital sale, the Los Angeles warehouse sale will not be taking place this season.Oh well. This is probably a win for our personal safety and for those who hate the early start time and line waiting of the physical sale—though now, instead of competing with Los Angeles residents over Alexander Wang purses and DVF dresses we'll be pitted against the entire nation. Barneys Warehouse Sale superfans, you best click over to the Barneys Warehouse site to sign up for online sale access.
Barneys will still be hosting the physical Warehouse Sale shoppers know and love in New York, August 23-September 3 at the 17th Street Barneys New York location.
