All-Clad Factory Sale: Winter 2013
*The dates for this winter's All-Clad factory sale have been announced, so as usual, I'm posting a heads-up for my readers...
All-Clad's factory is located in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. Twice a year, on the first weekend in June and December, All-Clad holds a factory seconds sale at the Washington County Fair and Expo Center.
This winter's All-Clad Factory Outlet Sale is scheduled for:
All-Clad Factory in Washington County Fairgrounds, Washington PA.
Friday, December 6th from 9am-7pm
Saturday, December 7th from 9am-4pm
Washington County Fair and Expo Center:
2151 North Main Street
Washington, PA 15301
This is about a two hour drive from the Akron area. You get prices from 40% to 70% off on factory seconds. In most cases, the damage is cosmetic; a little scratching on the stainless, or a lid handle that's a bit offset from center.
Most of All Clad's cookware is available but not their entire line. Some favorites (like the 12" stainless fry pan and its lid) are hard to find. Overall, though, it's an amazing value. Make sure to arrive early - there is always a long line to get into the sale, and I've had up to an hour wait.
(I've heard from readers that the lines are much shorter later in the day - they've been able to walk right into the sale in the afternoon.)
Q: What forms of payment do they take?
A: I've used Visa and MasterCard, and I know they take cash and checks. Not sure about other credit cards.
Q: Does it matter which day I go? Is stuff only available on Friday?
A: I've been there both Friday and Saturday morning, and have never been disappointed. They re-stock throughout the day; I've seen pallets of their special deals coming in during the sale. They seem to have a large stock of their best deals.
That said, certain items (12 inch lids, their pasta multi-pot) disappeared quickly when I was there, so I think some of the items are first come, first serve. My advice? If there is a specific item you want badly, and you can make it early on Friday, do it. (Be prepared to stand in line.) If you can't make it early in the day, don't let that stop you - the sale is still worth the trip. You'll still get good deals and selection.
*I will not be there this time around. I don't need any new cookware right now. If anything, I need to hold a garage sale and unload some of what I've accumulated...
