Overall Impressions:
The value at the sale was pretty good. What i would suggest is to go in with an idea of the retail prices though. As you can see on comparison of the items i had purchased, the percentage of savings for the products could vary quite a bit. On average, i found that you'd definitely save at least 50% off at the warehouse sale. Make sure you keep in mind that selection of products could be limited and that you'd have to be a bit flexible with the colours of products as well. I found that while the event was coordinated and organized, it was still quite difficult to find products due to the amount of people there and people mixing things up that some boxes ended up looking like they were miscellaneous items or you would sometimes get confused with whether it's a box with items to be sold or somebody else's haul. Overall, I found it to be a good experience where you just have to have the patience to look and dig around. Luckily for me, by the time i got to the sale there was no longer a line up to get into the sale or to pay at the cash. As well, it worked out just perfect that since the Umbra warehouse sale was located at the International Centre, other sales was happening at the same time such as the Parasuco and Fruits & Passion sale! I LOVE sales!
