Designer sample sales with discounts at up to 70% off?Â Sounds like a fashionÂ fable to me. Free shipping in Canada?Â Stop taunting me.Â Â Suffice to say, it’s all completely true. CanadaÂ now has it’s veryÂ own online sampleÂ sale website, Stylehopper.Â Put your elbowsÂ down.Â There’s no frenzy induced crowd battlingÂ required at this sale. Wanna know more? Here’s the low down from Bart Lipski, CEO of Stylehopper.
What is Stylehopper.com and how does it work?
Stylehopper is Canada’s answer to the online designer sample sale. The idea is simple: we have two to three day flash sales for an exclusive membership. If you’re interested in buying something you have to do it before the clock runs out! PlusÂ shipping is free in Canada.
What kind of brands can shoppers expect?
Anything you’d see in Holts inÂ Vancouver or Saks in New York, through to the cute downtown boutiques. Check the coming weeks’ sales in glorious detail on our Previews page. We donâ€™t just focus on labels though – our buyers lovingly select established brands as well as up-and-coming designers.
Designer pieces at up to 70% off sounds fabulous, but how is it possible?
It’s the same concept as standing in line outside Alexander Wang for a sample sale where everything’s 50% off. Except we figured it’s easier to queue online rather than on a sidewalk in a Canadian winter.
Got an inside scoop on upcoming flash sales Stylehopper.com is most excited about?
We love all our brands equally! But look out for unique pieces from Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s line Elizabeth and James and luxe outerwear from Mackage.
