Amazon Fashion is extending its invite-only Prime Wardrobe program to more Prime customers, the company told Retail Dive in an email on Thursday.

It’s nearly impossible to try to internet-stalk any business these days without stumbling across an Amazon-related article. Is that a reflection of Amazon’s efficient PR office? Or of their identity as a big bad wolf that terrifies the retail industry? We don’t know. But there’s no doubt that Amazon has recently made inroads into luxury, beauty, and fashion with 3-D body modeling technology and one-hour-catwalk-to-doorstep-deliveries like a slow bad news drip for competition. And those inroads are just the start. Drip, drip, drip; Amazon’s territory is growing exponentially. Is it possible that sample sales are part of that newly-conquered territory? Is Amazon really getting the eyes (and wallets) of our sample sale lovers?
You, as readers and sample sale aficionados, should be able to answer that question for us. Time for a multiple-choice pop quiz! If you used to love sample sales, but didn’t buy anything at a sample sale in 2017, was it because:
- You couldn’t make it to any sample sale.
- You were not impressed with the selection of items.
- Prices were high; the discounts were not big enough for a sample sale.
- Your tastes changed and you now prefer retail sales to sample sales.
- You buy everything on Amazon, and can’t be bothered with sample sales
OK, so it’s not much of a pop quiz if there are no right answers… but if you are genuinely curious, feel free to see the answers of the poll.
For those of you readers who are still sample-sale-devotees, here’s another multiple-choice pop quiz. This week, will you head over to the:
For this quiz, you can’t go wrong with any answer. Although the Hugo Boss sample sale promises to be a better sale for men than women we still recommend it. ?The German luxury company means business with their clothes and the event organized at Soiffer Haskin. No photos, no children, no strollers rules apply. Sorry.
The other sample sale is coming from Milly, the beloved New York based advanced contemporary brand celebrating its 17th year, and promises to have samples from the Fall/Winter collection: tops, skirts, pants, dresses, jumpsuits, outerwear, special occasion dresses, and more.
