Loehmann's Online Shopping Starts Today!

Monday, November 07, 2011

This has the makings of being one of the best online shopping developments to hit all year. Loehmann's online shopping starts today!

Loehmann's Online Shopping Starts November 7

For those of you not in the know about Loehmann's, or without a local Loehmann's to call your own, let me educate you. Loehmann's is a discount shopping store that stocks out of season and overstock items. Sounds like of like half a dozen stores floating around right now, doesn't it? But, Loehmann's is different.

They only stock top end labels that you actually recognize and want to buy, but marked down as much as 90% off. I know, it's madness! I was just at my local Loehmann's bricks-and-mortar store over the weekend, where I browsed labels like Theory, Helmut Lang, Vince, Valentino, Missoni, Rag & Bone, Marc by Marc Jacobs and See by Chloe. They are much more akin to a Neiman Marcus Last Call or Off Fifth Saks Fifth Avenue than a Ross or TJ Maxx.

So, back to this new development. Starting today, Loehmanns.com will offer online shopping. They are being awfully tight-lipped about what the store will look like and what labels will be included from day-one, but I'm hopeful. I'll be back with a more in-depth review after I get a chance to online shop. In the meantime, why don't all of you check it out too and let me know what you think. Keep your fingers crossed that it lives up to the in-store experience!
