Alexandria Warehouse Sale Returns February 5-6
The annual Alexandria warehouse sale will return this year on February 5-6. Due to concerns over COVID-19, like last year, this year the shopping event will be a foot sale to be held on the streets of the Old Town.
Nearly 50 Alexandria independent boutiques will participate in this year’s sale in stores, pop-up tents and open retail spaces along King Street and nearby side 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 “makers” component to the warehouse sale, as Made in ALX joins over two dozen local makers offering a variety of items ranging from candles to honey, books, clothing, pet treats and Valentine’s Day gifts. The Manufacturer’s Sale will take place at 201 N. Union St., the ALX Community Building along the waterfront, just north of the Torpedo Factory.
Bargain hunters will find prices up to 80% off the retail price of clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, pet products, home goods and more. There will be even more opportunities to save through pre-sale contests and giveaways.
The Old Town shopping district’s @otboutiques Instagram account will post two giveaways ahead of the sale. Entrants can share what they’re most looking forward to shopping for a chance to win an Old Town tote and a $25 gift card to the participating warehouse sale business of their choice. Four winners will be selected.
