OFFPRICE (formerly TOPS – The Off Price Show) is Philippines’ largest roving outlet sale where premium lifestyle brands are tagged at up to 80% lesser from corresponding online or mall boutique prices.
Premium brands at ultra low prices is indeed a money-saving privilege every shopper desires to experience all year round. But that is just a dream because Offprice only visits key cities in the Philippines once in a year. Thus, when you really want to score big when it roves near your place, you have to be ready. Here are some practical buying tips when shopping at Offprice.
Know when it roves near you. Follow OFFPRICE PHILIPPINES across social media platforms. Knowing the roving schedule helps you to set healthy budget for shopping, schedule specific amount to be saved months before its opening and check which piece in your closet needs a new one or list new stuff you now need to own.
Some of the best deals I got from Offprice 2017 in Davao. A Parker fountain pen which still keeps on writing big-ticket deals until now (Top Left). A Zara white shirt with thin blue stripes (Top Right) and a French Connection green shirt with thin white stripes. Both favorites for office dealings or weekend escapades.
Offprice in fact, helps us to still be mindful with our savings without compromising the quality of rewards we give to our hardworking self.
Be there on the opening day. (You know well how the cliché means.) Offprice usually stops for only three (3) days in every city, usually on a Friday until Sunday. It has specified inventory on each branded piece. It is not for everyone to own. It is only for the early birds. Thus, be there at 11AM or even earlier. On the first day. Register for your lifetime membership card at the entrance for rebates from accumulated purchases (That is an additional savings).
Compare sizes. Most apparels follow a US size measurement. Check first if the Medium still snugly fits you or you might be fit to the Small. There are also Asian sizes though. Thus, check the sizes in every premium brand you hop in.
Hoard first. Don’t rush queuing to the fitting room with only a handful. Get baskets and hoard pieces at your size. You come in early. You deserve the dibs!
Fit. The Offprice staff are good at assisting you. Be kind to them. They group your choices into 4 to smoothen the fitting. If it does not fit well, let it go. Stains and tears are not really concerns with Offprice items, but it still pays to check. When you just love that particular item which is too loose for you, get it. Your tailor would still charge you far lesser than the brand’s real selling price.
Pay. Cards are accepted – Enough said.
Owning premium brands through Offprice does not make you a money splurger. Offprice in fact, helps us to still be mindful with our savings without compromising the quality of rewards we give to our hardworking self. Save as you shop!
