TORONTO, August 27, 2020 – The Sample Sale Guys, the only designer sample sale company that operates across Canada, announced the launch of their new online shopping platform, The Flash Sale. Canadians can now shop online for affordable designer apparel and accessories from the comfort of their homes.

What started as a Toronto sample sale in a small hotel ballroom, has grown into a Canada-wide travelling event, that has shoppers marking their calendars. In just a four-day sales event, The Sample Sale Guys expect onwards 15,000-20,000 customers to descend for their opportunity to grab designer goodies at discounted prices you can’t get just anywhere. Not only were the sales bringing in city locals, but also, brand-lovers eager to road trip from neighbouring cities just to attend.

“After successfully hosting over 300 physical sample sales across Canada since 2010, the launch of our online website has been a long time coming,” said Warren Goldstein, CEO of The Sample Sale Guys and The Flash Sale. “This website is more than just a flash sale site. Our direct relationships with the brands has is what makes our site so exclusive. For years, we have sold designer merchandise on sale that is extremely hard to find.”

The Flash Sale has become a Canadian phenomenon, where those in the know can buy their favourite designer brands at unbeatable prices. Offering a huge sum of luxury brands, the site never reveals the brands up until a week before the event, so only registered customers get informed.

The Sample Sale Guys’ loyal customers are familiar with the process; the early bird gets the worm. Shoppers must act fast, the events usually run for only 48 to 72 hours before the deal is gone and the best merchandise sells out first. “Just last weekend we hosted a three-day event that rushed 160,000 visitors to the website and sold 27,000 units of designer shoes. The Flash Sale has quickly taken a lead role in this industry,” said Goldstein.

The fashion industry has faced big challenges amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Retail stores and designer brands are suffering, and has presented a great opportunity during this trying time. The shopping platform is getting hundreds of factory workers back to work, and enabling brands to liquidate inventory in a fast and discreet way, while maintaining the brands integrity.

Consumers are benefiting the most by enjoying the excitement of purchasing flash sale deals each week. The Flash Sale is unique in offering Canadians limited-time savings up to 75% off retail prices on authentic merchandise for women, men and kids. All products are displayed online with customer service live chat to answer questions in real time. This makes for a very easy shopping experience.
