The R13 Sample Sale is a Rip Off

By: Jacqueline Munro

The prices at the R13 sample sale are very disappointing, but at least there is a decent selection of merchandise. I kept getting confused between the menswear and womenswear; not that you can’t wear either regardless of your gender. But an employee called me out for grabbing a men’s sweatshirt in a very embarrassing way.

At this sale, they have more jeans than anything else; there are several tables lining the middle of the showroom with tons of denim. They’re selling a pair for $125 which is just too much money. At the Current Elliot sample sale (currently going on at 260) jeans are going for $45 which is, on average, 80% off their retail prices. And they’re definitely just as nice as R13 jeans when it comes to quality. The fact that the R13 sweatshirts are selling for $125 is insulting. I mean they’re comfy, but definitely not worth a sample sale price of $125. Oh, and their famous lace-up boots are $395. So if you were thinking of getting a pair for a reasonable price, I’m sorry to say this, but it isn’t happening at this sale.

Overall, I’m giving this sale a 5/10. The prices are outrageous and the staff members are rude. If you were really excited about this sale and are still contemplating going, at least wait for the additional markdowns Thursday (which I overheard a staff member confirm).

The Good, Bad and Just Ugly – R13 and CP Company Sample Sale

R13 & CP Company sample sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the chance to check out the R13 and CP Company Sample Sale at ClothingLine located at 261 W 36 Street. The R13 and CP Company Sample Sale was interesting. There was very limited inventory from CP Company and a lot of eclectic merchandise from R13

The R13 and CP Company Sample Sale had limited variety and merchandise. The pieces from CP Company were extremely limited to one rack of sweaters and another of winter coats. The sweaters were high quality cashmere but still the prices were too high. R13 had a great deal for their jeans, you could buy three pairs for just $150! While these jeans usually retail for somewhere between 250 to 400 dollars.

Overall, we rated the R13 and CP Company Sample Sale a 5 out of 10. The merchandise from R13 felt old and dirty. While there was extremely limited assortment of clothing from CP Company. The prices on everything, besides the jeans, from R13 were still high. The sizing options from both companies was limited to only smalls and extra smalls.
