The annual Alexandria Warehouse Sale will return this year on February 5-6. Due to concerns about COVID-19, like last year, this year the commercial event will be a walk-in sale to be held on the streets of the old town.
Almost 50 independent boutiques in Alexandria will participate in this year’s sale in stores, pop-up tents and open retail spaces along King Street and adjacent streets. A full list and map of participating retailers will be posted on the event website, www.oldtownboutiquedistrict.com/alexandria-warehouse-sale.
This year, there will be a “manufacturers” component at the warehouse sale, because Made in ALX joins more than two dozen local manufacturers offering a variety of items ranging from honey candles, books, clothing, pet treats and Valentine’s Day gifts.
Bargain hunters will find discounted prices of up to 80% off the retail price on clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, pet products, housewares and more. There will be even more opportunities to save through contests and giveaways leading up to the sale.
The Instagram account of the shopping district of the old town @otboutiques will post two giveaways before the sale. Entrants can share what they can’t wait to buy for a chance to win an Old Town tote and $ 25 gift card to the participating warehouse sale business of their choice. Four winners will be selected.
