Intrigued by the yellow and black e-blast announcing the weekend-only hours of J. Crew’s online factory store, I decided to check it out. The women’s section offers a disappointing collection of discounted tissue t’s, blazers, cardigans, pants and skirts. The men’s section has a decent selection of button-down shirts and sweaters. If you are shopping for a few basic items, the prices are lower than the regular store. However; some of the trendier items are missing that “c’est la mode” that we all adore. One plus to the factory store is the clothing is returnable, unlike the “final sale.” The best way to get some fabulous J. Crew style at more affordable prices is through the sale section. With hundreds of items on sale, you can always score a fashion find, however; popular sizes do sellout fast.
Remember, the factory store is only open from 12 a.m. Friday to Sunday at midnight (EST).
