If you haven't already heard, BCBG is closing its US stores. It's unclear how many of their more than 570 boutiques will be shutting their doors, but either way, big changes are on the way. There is some good news for your wallet though — BCBG is having a limited time closing sale. When does it end, you ask? There's more than one sale going on, which means there's more than one date to remember.
It's a sad, sad day in fashion. According to Allure, BCBG's in-store locations are closing in order to "focus on the digital retail landscape." Basically, all of your online shopping is to blame for this news. While this isn't the end for the brand, it is a serious blow for fans of its wares. A spokesperson for BCBG tells Bustle in a statement,
"Like so many other great brands, BCBG has been negatively impacted by the growth in online sales and shifts in customer shopping patterns and, as a result, has too large a physical retail footprint. In order to remain viable, the company --like so many others in its industry -- must re-align its business to effectively compete in today’s shopping environment. This realignment will include a reduced focus on free-standing brick-and-mortar stores, concentrating more on in-store boutiques and, increasing our online presence as well as licensing. BCBG is a world class designer and producer of apparel, which with the necessary changes, should be able to be successful. We are looking at a variety of options to accomplish the restructuring of the company."
But the silver lining is that the brand is having an online sale in honor of the store closings. There are three different sales ranging from 25 to 50 percent off. Depending on which one you want to shop, you either have until Jan. 23 or 31. The bigger the percentage off, the longer you have to shop.
All of the sales are currently up on the site right now. The 25 percent off sale is off of all regularly priced dresses and accessories. It won't last forever though. This is the only one of the three sales that ends on Jan. 23 at 2:59 a.m. ET.
The other two sales end on Jan. 31 at 2:59 a.m. ET. The first is 30 percent off select Factory styles. The largest saving is 50 percent off Factory clearance. While prices still range from $100 to $400, half off is still a pretty darn great deal.
So what are you waiting for? Go hit the online shops and save some money before these deals disappear!
