Then head to REI's Garage Sale. It is happening this weekend at both Valley locations. You score some amazing deals during their sale.
REI's Garage Sale is full of customer return items and it is a way for REI to clear out their inventory. So splurge on a new tent without having to break the bank!
At this sale all items are sold as is but the mark downs are huge. Most items are discounted at least 40% and go up 70% or more. They often have an abundance of shoes from hiking to rock wall climbing, plus lots of tents and sleeping bags plus bike equipment and the list goes on. Last time I attended this sale I purchased a four person tent for $10 and Keen hiking shoes for $15. Those shoes normally retail for $70.
This sale attracts just about everyone who is into outdoor sports so expect to wait in line. Also keep in mind some of the items may be missing parts and clothes or shoes may have been worn a few times and returned. Some items are in perfect condition and some items may need some tender love to get back to good condition, but no matter what, you can find a bargain at this sale.
One more really big thing. In order to get into the sale you must be an REI member. You can purchase a membership the day of the sale. It cost $20 and it is a lifetime membership, which means once you pay that $20 you will always be a member.
Both Valley REI locations will be conducting their garage sales and each location will be doing it differently.
The Tempe REI Garage Sale is only on Saturday, October 12 and it starts at 9 a.m. outside of the store and will end once the entire inventory is gone. In the past, they're usually cleared out by 1 p.m. The Tempe location will be on a first-come first-served basis. So I would suggest you get their well before 9 a.m. so you can get the best selection.
The Paradise Valley location is conducting their sale a little different. It starts on Friday, October 11 at 10 a.m. and ends on Sunday October 13. The sale is only during their regular store hours and will be inside the store upstairs. They will only let 30 people in at a time and you will only be able to shop for a period of time then the next group of people waiting in line will be let in.
Plus they will replenish the inventory so everyone can get a fair chance of scoring deals. Again at both locations all items sold at the sale will be sold as is. So look and make sure you have all of the poles you need for that tent and be nice, have fun and post your deals on my
Smartshopper15 Facebook page.
