The Barneys Warehouse Sale, formerly the exclusive privilege of seasoned New Yorkers, will be returning for its sophomore season on the World Wide Web. The brand has just announced that the famous sale—which boasts discounts up to 70% off high-end designers—will be held online for the second time this February.
If you recall, last season they secretly launched in the wee hours of the morning, presumably to avoid tech issues that could arise from too many people visiting the site at one time. Barneys then rolled out email notifications throughout the day.
The drill seems to be the same this time around. The department store is soliciting email addresses and promising "to notify you as soon as the sale starts." But no date has been announced.
Head here to sign up to receive notification from Barney's about the sale, and head over to Racked New York to learn more about the Warehouse Sale happenings on the ground.
