I just received word that the 2010 Vera Bradley Outlet Sale will be extended by one day! Here are the updated dates and times:
Thursday 4/29/2010: 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Friday 4/30/2010: 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Saturday 5/01/2010: 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Sunday 5/02/2010: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
As you can see, Sunday has now been added, and on Saturday, the sale will be open for two hours longer, closing at 8:00 p.m. instead of 6:00 p.m.
I am thrilled with this news! Like many of you, I was concerned about the crowds. At last count, I heard that 12,000 people had already registered for the sale, and if it’s anything like last spring, there will be at least 60,000 people attending. That’s a lot of shoppers to cram into only three days. Now, we have a fourth day to do all our shopping, and with any luck, this extra day will provide a little more elbow room and a little less time waiting in line!
Also, this is great news for those of you that will be coming to Fort Wayne from out of town. I’m sure the best deals will be found on Saturday and Sunday – although the trade off will be that some of the items will be picked over. However, if you were planning to make a weekend road trip, this extension should give you a little more flexibility in your scheduling.
As always, if I hear any other news or updates regarding the 2010 Vera Bradley Outlet Sale, I will post them here. Time is flying – it’s only a little over a month away!
