The SAMple Sale was Simply OK

By: Eve Orbach

The Sam. Sample sale had great winter coats but at a discount of approximately 50% to 60%, better discounts can be found elsewhere. Simply put, this sale was underwhelming. Women’s coats were the most heavily featured item, but there were styles for men and children as well. Overall the price markdowns were significant, but paying upwards of $200-$300 at a sale is definitely not what I would call a great steal. If you are in the market for a new winter coat then this might be worth attending, but don’t go in with high expectations. (I tried to get a new coat because my four year old horrible purple coat is stain-ridden, but alas— I was unsuccessful.)

There was a good range of sizes, colors, and styles available. There were long lines to enter, and unless you are on the sale’s guest list you might end up waiting over 20 minutes in the cold just to get a jacket (kind of ironic, no?). 

The coats were hung up neatly on hangers. There was a women’s section, men’s section, and children’s section all organized by style. 

All sales are final. Cash and major credit cards are accepted. The opening times for each day vary; be sure to check the picture below to get there on time.

I gave this sale a 4/10. The long lines and high prices made this sale a bust.

All Lined Up for the Sam Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

We know winter is coming and the need to stay warm is paramount. However, at the Sam sample sale, people were lined up in the cold just to snag fur-lined Sam coat. Crazy! Once you made it through the door, the room is filled with coats and vests for women and kids. If you love a good parka with fur this is the place to be. Find coats with just fur-lined hood or full fur lining. The brand reps did not allow us to report on pricing. What we can say is that items were about 40ish percent off. All inventory ranged from $129 to $999.

We rated the Sam sample sale an 8 out of 10. The line is long and the discount isn’t amazing. On the other hand, there was an abundance of merchandise available for shopping. There were multiple items in the same style. And even the kids had a large selection. Hey, if people are lining up and going crazy inside, they must be on to something. If you’re willing to brave the cold, head over to Meatpacking district and check it out for yourself. Happy shopping!
