Forget going to Boxing Day sales when factory outlets have the cheapest bargains everyday in Alexandria, around 15 minute walk from Redfern Station or 5 minutes from Green Square station (1 station from Central on the Airport Line).
$2 samples and seconds are exclusive to the Clearance Outlet, so grab those shopping baskets and fill it up with random items of clothing… that you normally wouldn’t buy- but it’s ridiculously too cheap!
The huge red posters in the front windows help attract the shop’s attention.
Nothing over $5 on the wall, and nothing over $10 on the racks.
Racks and racks of samples and faulties. It’s like finding a needle in a haystack at times. But once you’ve found something amazing, you won’t regret coming.
Cotton On Body offers a great selection as well.
Tables and tables of shoes!
Sunnies for $3.. I’m not worried about the branding! I tend to loose mine anyway. I’ve got 4 pairs at home..
There is even a huge selection for men’s.
Try the clothes on but beware- there are no lights so it’s hard to get changed around the black curtains.
Maxi dress and a guy’s shirt that I wear as my pjs were $2 each.
These funky skirts were $2 only.
All these shoes I bought for $2 each, except the sneakers for $10.
Even staff only gets 50% off full priced items. At this rate, you’ll have a new wardrobe in one trip.
Review Rating: =D =) =| =(
Product (clothes): =)
Would I go everyday to Cotton On Clearance Outlet? YUP! I used to intern at Cardinal Spin, which is only one block away and almost every week I would return with a red Cotton On bag. Oops. The quality of clothes isn’t bad either. Some of the stock isn’t the best in the $2 section but lots of the new stuff is around $5. Score!
Would I pay full price for the items I bought? I would definitely buy that maxi dress for full price and possibly the skirts because they are really nice and are marked down from $20-$40 so that’s amazing. I wouldn’t get the shoes normally because I would prefer comfort and sunnies break often so I wouldn’t pay the full fare.
Highlight: Going through the clothes on sale! There are so many items of clothing, accessories, shoes, etc.. you’ll end up spending your whole lunch break there..
Suggestion of Improvement: Some of the items are clearly labeled and I wasn’t too sure at first BUT if it has a ‘S’-like mark using red then it’s only $2. I liked how if there was something wrong with something, it would be written on the tag but the biggest downfall is spending more than you need. That isn’t a bad thing.. right? Lighting for each of the change rooms would be useful, too.
