Skipping warehouse sales is like being unable to catch the bus—it's a missed opportunity. In resolution to make 2019 shopping more affordable and worry-free, we list down seasonal warehouse sales for the top two contenders to this event: books and shoes.
2018 is a good year, if not the best, for book hoarders. There was the annual Manila International Book Fair in September and the newly launched Big Bad Wolf in February. When the biggest book fairs conclude, these warehouse sales will treat your bookworm hearts.
Books For Less Warehouse Sale
If you hope to achieve a bibliophile's kind of understanding in life, you only need to visit this well-loved book sale. With prices as low as 50php, it’d be a shame to forego the chance to haul what could be your next favorite read.
Books For Less Warehouse is at 643 Frankfurt Street, Mercedes Ave. San Miguel, Pasig. For more information, visit Books For Less on Facebook.
Summit Media Warehouse Sale
It came as a surprise to many when Summit Media announced the cessation of its print titles. Then came January and June, Summit Media Warehouse Sale offered extensive back issue collections and hard-to-find book releases at considerable discounts. Now we got our fingers crossed to see more of this.
Summit Media Warehouse is at RDC Business Complex, Brgy. San Andres, Cainta, Rizal. For more information, visit National Book Store on Facebook.
Anvil Publishing Warehouse Sale
It's called Anvil-evable Warehouse Sale for a reason—books go for as low as 5php. As one of the top local publishers, you can expect titles from their roster of Filipino authors. They also have Spark Books, the feels-giving romance titles, and an LGBTQ+ collection that gives voice to this marginalized sector of the society.
Anvil Warehouse is at KM 14 West Service Road, La Suerte Compound, Merville, Parañaque City. For more information, visit Anvil Publishing on Facebook.
Saying expensive shoes are a better investment than standard ones is a persuasive argument. However, affordable kicks don't necessarily mean it's of poor quality. Here are the most notable examples of clearance sales we've grown accustomed to.
Converse Warehouse Sale
In case you don't know, you can never go wrong with a good pair of Chucks. From classic pairs to signature Chucks, get the most bang for your buck at this warehouse sale. Bags and apparels are available, too, FYI.
Converse Warehouse is at 65 General Molina Street, Marikina City. For more information, visit Converse Philippines on Facebook.
Toby's Garage Sale
Nike, Adidas, Wilson, New Balance—when these and many more brands huddle under one roof, you can expect foot traffic from sneakerheads. And since it's Toby's, there are also other sports items such as apparel and gym equipment.
Toby’s Sports Head Office is at Quorum Centre, C. Raymundo Avenue, Pasig City. For more information, visit Toby's Sports on Facebook.
Nike Factory Store Warehouse Sale
We may be going a bit far from the metro on this one, but it's inevitable. More than scoring huge discounts to purchase your new kicks, you can also cop the freshest Nike drops. At Nike Factory Stores, the destination is just as important as the journey.
Nike Factory Stores are at NLEX, Pampanga; SLEX, Mamplasan; Paseo de Sta. Rosa, Laguna, and Mactan, Cebu. For more information, visit Nike Factory Store PH on Facebook.
Warehouse sales are often crowded, so make sure to arm yourself with the essentials. Did we miss anything on this list? We'd be glad to hear from you!
