Discount Women's Clothing - How to Find Women's Clothing at a Discount

stores clothes sales jeans

Prices of fashionable clothing for women can be outrageous at most department stores. Specialty shops, often located in town squares, charge even more. However, it is not impossible to find attractive clothing for a fraction of the price, if you know where to look. You may be amazed at what you will find when you stray from the center of town and the big city malls to smaller and greener pastures. Once you see the hidden bargains, you may never want to go back to the larger, more well-known stores.

If you are wiling to wear secondhand clothes, then thrift stores are the place for you. Look especially at your local Goodwill or Salvation Army stores. Their prices range from $1 to $5 for clothing. Particularly, if you live in or drive to a more wealthy area, you will find higher quality clothes that have been donated to these stores. Some of the clothing may have never even been previously worn. It is possible to find expensive formal dresses with the tags still intact for as low as $4. Designer jeans in many sizes line the racks. Sometimes the most comfortable kind of jeans are those that have already been broken in by previous wear, and often the worn look is preferred over the look of jeans fresh from the factory. Of course, no matter what type of clothing you are considering, you should always closely check the fabric, buttons, and seams for tears, stains or other flaws before buying. Some may be absolutely perfect, but others may have small imperfections. You must decide whether the flaw is small enough to live with or too noticeable for you to enjoy wearing the item. Remember, you are paying only a few dollars, so the amount saved might be worth having to endure a small speck. If the blemish is fixable and you have the skills to alter it, then it is definitely worth purchasing.

Another store harboring great bargains is Walls Bargain Center. They receive their merchandise as a result of incidences such as factory over-productions, closeouts and bankruptcies. Most of their clothing is of good to high quality, but you should always examine it before buying, because they do receive some irregular items. Walls Bargain Center has an amazing array of clothing from which to choose. They have everything from wedding dresses and formal gowns to swimsuits and underwear. The stores are usually very large and have numerous racks of pants, jeans, blouses, t-shirts, dresses and every other type of clothing imaginable. They also have dressing rooms, and it is a great idea for you to make use of them, and use them as a place to examine the quality and fit of the item carefully.

A chain of stores called “Dirt Cheap” offers deeply discounted clothing and lots of it. However, be wary of every item, because they are “dirt cheap” for a reason; most of their items do contain flaws of some sort. Check for missing or malfunctioning zippers, lost buttons, and uneven seams. They do have dressing rooms, so be sure to take advantage of them.

In many suburbs and rural areas, you will find multiple yard sales. The items are often as cheap as $1, depending on the seller. Often the owner of the yard offers clothes for sale because he or she has either outgrown them or lost weight and cannot fit into them anymore. If this is the case, then the clothes may still be in good shape and not tattered from frequent use. Some owners will even let you use an outdoor utility room to try on the clothes before you buy them.

If you desire a bargain, but you just can’t bring yourself to buy clothing that is not from a department store, then check your local newspaper to see if any stores in your area are having sidewalk sales. During these sales, extremely discounted items are moved outside to the parking lot or sidewalk in front of the store. Sidewalk sales help stores clear out merchandise at the end of a season to make room for new arrivals. The end of summer and winter bring many such sales along with them.
