If you are a fan of designer merchandise and appreciate when you have the opportunity to purchase some of that merchandise on sale, then you really need to visit either a Loehmann's store, or, even more convenient, Loehmanns.com.
I can't remember exactly how many years ago it was that I first stepped into a Loehmanns store, although I do remember exactly which one it was… 7th Avenue in Manhattan. This was not long after the store opened, replacing a Barneys New York store which previously occupied the building. It must have been in the 90's I would have to guess, and back then there were only a few Loehmanns locations. There were very few places where you could find designer closeouts, and Loehmanns truly had the best selection.
A few years later, I was elated when the company opened a store on La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, just a block south of the high fashion shopping mall, the Beverly Center. I visited the store quite regularly and there was always a find to be had, whether it be in fragrances, ready-to-wear, denim or footwear.
Fast forward to the Loehmanns of today, and you are looking at a company which a second bankruptcy toward the end of the 2008-2010 recession, and emerged a leaner, smarter retailer by early 2011. Currently the chain operates approximately 40 stores, strategically located in close proximity to well-known, high end shopping areas. In addition to Manahattan and Los Angeles, Loehmanns stores can be found in places like Boca Raton (FL), San Francisco (CA), Norwalk (CT), Paramus (NJ), Houston (TX) and Washington (D.C.)
If you don't have a Loehmanns store close to you, don't despair. Loehmanns now operates an online store where you can still access some amazing deals on designer merchandise for women, men and kids. Here you can find a great selection of ladies dresses, ready-to-wear and accessories (sunglasses, handbags, belts) along with mens denim, shirts, activewear and accessories. Unfortunately, Loehmanns does not ship internationally, so shopping online is limited to those customers in the United States.
Visit Loehmanns.com regularly to find the latest deals. What you see one day probably won't be there on the next visit, so don't wait before purchasing. With the discounted prices offered, there are a lot of other customers competing for the same merchandise. And write now the timing couldn't be better to check out Loehmanns…
