One day, when we lived in the west loop, I drove by the H2O corporate headquarters on Madison and saw a sign that caught my eye – “Warehouse Sale This Saturday”. Since it was just down the street from our condo, I got up early, stopped at Starbucks and got in line for the 7AM opening. Jeff was a trooper and came with me and thank goodness he did – we scored big time at this sale! We bought favors for our wedding guests, Christmas presents, bath gels, lotions, and potions and more! Bargain is an understatement – they give the stuff away. Your price for practically free bath goodies? A long line and a definite warehouse setting (comfy shoes are a must!). But there are unbelievable deals to be had here!!!!
H2O once again hosts this sale this Saturday, June 13 from 7AM – 3PM at their warehouse at 845 W. Madison. You can pay with cash or major credit cards (MC, Visa, Amex) and all sales are final. I highly recommend the early morning wait in line. H2O staffers hand out numbers as you arrive and they are pretty strict about saving places in line so make sure that if you’re attending with pals, you all arrive at the same time.
If you don’t live in Chicago or you’re just not into fighting the crowds, Bath & Body Works is also having its semi-annual sale (they have it again in January). Again, if you look, you can score some great bargains – especially in the 75% off bins. The sale is also online but the bargains don’t seem to be as big online as they are in the stores.
