Carolina Warehouse Sale makes it on Vogue

Posted By on Wed, Jun 24, 2009 at 12:13 PM


By now you've certainly heard about the Carolina Warehouse Sale starting this weekend. It's only been dubbed the "sale of all sales in Charlotte, North Carolina." At least, Vogue thinks so.

Carolina Warehouse Sale is a one-week (June 27-July 4) premiere discount sales event offering top designer items for unbeatable prices. This event will offer shoppers access to a huge inventory from top regional boutiques and national designers and will be held at 4720 Sharon Road (corner of Sharon and Fairview Road in the old Barnes and Noble store).

Here's a snippet from the Vogue writeup:

“To paraphrase Rahm Emanuel [speaking of the ailing auto industry last November], it would be a shame to waste the opportunity of a crisis,” says Ruth Caldwell, buyer for the Charlotte NC store Capitol (the Southern city’s go-to boutique for labels like Balenciaga, Oscar de la Renta, and Rodarte).

The crisis at hand? Because stores placed their spring orders last year, before the economic downturn (with their customers’ pre-recession shopping habits in mind), they have an abundance of merchandise that hasn’t sold this season. And the opportunity? Caldwell came up with the idea to have Charlotte-area stores combine their leftover clothing and shoes and have one big sell-off.

Read the full story here.

Here's the list of participating stores:

Beaux Belly (maternity)

Bella Ropa

Black and Blue





Coco Fleur

Cottage Chic



Monkees of Lake Norman

Our Place

Paul Simon for Women


Scout & Molly’s

the poole shop

And some things to keep in mind:

  1. VISA and MasterCard ONLY, plus one form of photo ID
  2. No handbags allowed and no strollers
  3. All sales are final
  4. There are no private dressing rooms
