Shoppers can prepare for the Gilt City Chicago Warehouse Sale by reviewing the following tips and advice to having the best possible experience:

Arrive early: Just as you would for any sample sale, arrive early! No matter what session you come to, be sure to get there with ample time. This ensures a full shopping experience, and it’s best to view the merchandise when it’s most organized.
Reduce your drag: Come prepared to shop – we require coat check and large bag check, so bring a small purse or wallet that you can keep your credit cards and ID in. A small wallet or cross-body bag will leave your hands free to peruse the racks, or sip a cocktail! Also, shopping in light layers will allow you to try clothes on easily, and you may even decide not to wait for a fitting room!
Skip the Line: Guests with bags smaller than 5”x7” with no coats can access the FastPass line and avoid coat check.
Think Ahead: Don’t be afraid to shop for future seasons. You’ll find that there are amazing deals for every occasion – score designer suits or that perfect glam dress for the holidays.
Have an open mind: The most exciting part of the Warehouse Sale is the element of surprise! While you may have certain items in mind that you’re really focused on purchasing, take your time, look through the racks and filter through the shoes and accessories with an open mind. This is usually the time when the magic happens and you’ll find yourself going home with some great steals that you might otherwise not have found!
And Remember – Plastic! No cash, so bring your debit or credit cards!
