The Saks Potts sample sale is currently being hosted down near Canal street in a tiny space that cannot accommodate more than 7 shoppers at a time. The line was insanely long and the staff members weren’t limiting the amount of time that the shoppers could spend in the showroom so it moved very slowly.
When you walk in the sale you’re probably going to feel claustrophobic and you might even be a little disappointed at first. They don’t have a lot of merchandise on display because the space is so limited, but I was told that they had enough back stock to put out new items every day of the sale. Most of the sizes were on the smaller end, but it looked like there may have been a few exceptions. There are about four long racks of coats and jackets ranging from their classic styles to one of a kind samples, and sadly there is one small rack of clothing. The discounts are amazing though. Their super popular, classic styles were about 55%-60% off, but other styles ranged up to 90% off. I got two $1095 puffer jackets for $145 each.
Overall I’m giving this sale a 9/10. The two things that took away from the awesomeness of this sale were the line situation and the staff members. I hate to say this but the girls running the sale were just downright rude. They were totally unfriendly and I was extremely disappointed when they told me that they would hold a coat for me and I went back to get it only to be told that there were no holds. Other than those two issues though, I have no complaints. The pricing was amazing and the selection was just as good.
