Buying Winter Coats in July or September

Jump to last reply

Fortunately, we have two trips planned to Canada this summer... Montreal and the Eastern townships in July and the driving from Seattle or Vancouver to the Canadian Rockies in September. Any ideas on getting a good winter coat on sale during these months?? I know Canada Goose is never on sale, but looking for similar warmth, if not the stylish label.
Thanks.

    July would be the better time - by September, anything in the shops would be "new models" for 2016-17, not sale items from 2015-16.

    Either way though, I doubt you're going to find much of anything on sale - most sales on winter gear are in early to late spring, so done by early May. These days sales are earlier and earlier - often before winter is even over.

    And, honestly, the best place for sales is online - I find far better deals & selections from websites than I ever do in-store. My impression is that stores are increasingly keeping only very limited quantity in stock, and thus "left over" merchandise is most likely to be sold through their website or that of the many online businesses that seem to specialize in sales/discounts.

    If you are in Banff, you could try Monods, though I doubt they'd have any winter stuff on their sales racks at that point. You might try Patagonia if that's your style, though again it's the wrong season & most of their sale stuff is sold online through Patagonia Elements or the main Patagonia store. If you are in Canmore, Switching Gear is an excellent outdoor gear consignment store. You never know what will be on the racks, but you can get some fabulous deals there. Other options include MEC (in Vancouver or Calgary) and REI (Seattle). For both you need to purchase a co-op membership, but they are cheap ($5). I know for MEC you can order online and pick up in store - suspect REI has a similar set up.
