Racked NY has taken to the streets to find out how Barneys Warehouse Sale shoppers feel about the seminal question of the week: To wait in line or to shop online? Surprise: Those queued up outside of Barney's Warehouse were predictably anti-virtual-sale. Like Gerry, for example, who told Racked NY, "I don't think it's fair. Once I come to New York, the sale is available to me back home." Do you have thoughts on online vs. in-store sample sales? Let us hear 'em in the comments. [Racked NY]
