Where did all the sample sales go? Only a handful of them are still around, but one of the best runs through Saturday. The David Rosenberg sale at 11525 Excelsior Blvd. in Minnetonka won't appeal to the hardcore sample sale shopper used to getting high-end designers or couture at wholesale prices.
Rosenberg's sale attracts more of the middle of the road shopper who likes Herberger's, Kohl's and Penneys. Brands include Southern Lady, Erin London, Tribal, Woolrich, Habitat, PBJ Sport, Quiksilver, Pepe and Buffalo Denim. Save about 50 percent or more off regular retail.
When i went earlier today, the men's selection is good, but much smaller than the women's. there are about three rows of men's merchandise and nearly ten times as much women's clothing and jewelry.
The racks along the back wall are for items marked $3 to $5.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
