What is a store sample? A store sample is a garment being sold by a boutique or brand straight from their showroom floor, usually at a hefty discount. Samples are often discontinued styles or surplus products, and while a sample may show minor signs of being tried on, they’re typically in great shape. Many still have the designer retail tags on them. We stand behind the store samples on our site. Rest assured, when you purchase from us you will be receiving a high-quality product that will exceed your expectations, and if for some reason it doesn’t we make returning orders easy and painless.
