Merry After-Holiday Sales

Shirley Walker

A slew of post-holiday sales kick off this weekend all over the city. Here are some of the spots we'll be hitting up to take advantage of the best deals.

The Big Box Department Stores

All of our favorite department stores marked down their winter wares significantly over the post-holiday weekend, with the clear winner being Saks Fifth Avenue, whose designer goods are being discounted up to 70%. This week, however, all three of the big Fifth/Madison department stores -- Bergdorf Goodman,  Barneys, and Saks -- are taking their designer wares down by up to 60%. The prices may still be rather astronomical, but 60% off high-end platforms is about all we can ever ask for.
