Plenty sale

Finally, the long weekend is here and I’m sure for many of you, it hasn’t come soon enough. You may be preparing for your Easter dinners, but there is one more thing to put on your calendar that you won’t want to miss!

Starting Friday at 9 a.m. Vancouver’s Plenty clothing store is holding their massive annual sale.

In it’s fifth year, Plenty is hoping to bring in more people as it has become increasingly popular over the years. Starting off in a 2,000 square foot space, this year’s space has increased to 20,000 square feet at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

“It’s such a good deal that people remember [the sale] and are expecting it,” said Plenty’s communication manager Jenna Tuazon.

The local clothing store is selling items from previous seasons for men and women with a discount of 60 – 90 per cent.

Tuazon says she expects the house brand wool coats will sell out quickly for those who will save it for the fall. Those coats can be found on sale for $40. The denim always sells out, she says as well as the shoes.

“If I were a customer, I would go for the shoes right away,” she says.

However, be prepared to wait in a long line with thousands coming down to the event.  Tuaza says that she expects over 10,000 people to join the event with customers lining through the halls of the convention centre. Last year, there were 20,000 units of clothes with more items for this year.


Making a comeback

Well, it has been quite hectic since I last posted. I am finally a journalism graduate and just recently finished an internship with Vancouver 24 hours. I have been working hard at finishing my last year at college, spending 10 to 14 hours a day at school, working on major projects. While interning at 24 Hours, I worked as a social media intern and wrote several feature articles. I was lucky enough to cover Vancouver Fashion Week and made some friends along the way.
But now that that’s all over, I will be doing weekly blog posts again on fashion trends and how they relate in history and perhaps a few feature articles in between. I am looking forward to putting my all back into this blog and constantly improving!
I hope you guys stay tuned in the future and will a be part of this experience!

I will have something new to share within the next week, but until then here is one my fashion articles from 24 Hours, in case you missed it!
