It’s that time of year again. Stores clear out their summer merchandise to make way for the delicious, brand new Fall/Winter collections. So yes ladies, it’s time to brandish that credit card, deplete those savings–and head to some of the city’s best sales. Whether its snatching that new pair of jeans, or scoring those designer heels… here are five summer sales to run (don’t walk!) to.

Ruins (950 Queen St. West): With its luxe hipster aesthetic and carefully curated picks, Ruins is the place to go to grab Minnow Bathers, CB: I Hate Perfume and Opening Ceremony. 

The Room @ The Bay (176 Yonge St.): When The Room has a sale, it may just be easier to call it a “less depressing splurge”. However, if you can buy Nicholas Kirkwood for ERDEM shoes marked down to less than $300 dollars–we say, splurge away!

Chasse Gardée (1084 Queen St. West): Primarily a shoe boutique, Chasse Garde stocks the labels we love. From sky high Jeffery Campbells to Dieppa Restepro brogues, we’re loving the fact that some of these shoes are up to 60% off.

Jonathan and Olivia (49 Ossington Ave.): With up to 70% off downtown cool kid labels, how could we possibly say no to snapping up deconstructed tops and super skinny denim.

ZARA (locations around Toronto): When Zara has a sale, they really have a sale. This Spain based fast fashion chain is always on trend. Sure, it’s crowded. Sure you’re going to have to wade through a myriad of stuff to get to your perfect piece–but it is so worth it when you score that gem.
