10 Tips for Shopping The Novato Warehouse Sale:

  1. Come early if you want first dibs especially at the Kuhn Rikon warehouse where you can expect a lot of other deal trackers. If you don’t need to have first dibs come a few hours after opening.
  2. Bring a shopping partner. If the lines are long you can take turns shopping and waiting in line. Plus you can help each other make smart choices.
  3. This sale takes place in an office park at the actual warehouses and not retail stores. You will fnd products on folding tables, in boxes, and shelves. Expect to find a lot of merchandise in a small(ish) space.
  4. Not to generalize but the crowd at this sale, unlike many sales we deal track, are very friendly. Expect a sense of community and sharing instead of guerrilla-style acquisition tactics.
  5. The sale is only as long as the supplies last.
  6. Some establishments will only take cash so bring plenty of greenbacks.
  7. All sales are final. No exchanges, no returns, period.
  8. No sale previews (aka early shopping) and no sales to the public after November 18th.
  9. Consider this a stock up opportunity with this caveat: buy what you need and what you will use. Just because it is a great price does not mean it is a great deal. It is better to walk away empty-handed then come home with something you do not need.Purchases that sit in your front hall closet unused are not deals. I know because this happens to me…
  10.  Hungry from all that shopping? Then be sure to check out these local food options. Plus, if you mention the Novato Warehouse Sale when dining at Aurora Ristorante Italiano they will deduct 10% off your meal (deal available November 16-18 only.)
