I love outlet sales and on my continuous hunt to save money I am constantly disappointed in what most outlet sales now consist of.
With the development of outlet malls the real outlet sales have almost all but vanished. Businesses now often run a second cheaper line that they sell at outlet mall trying to fool the consumer. There truly is no real money saving.
But the real outlet sale has not totally disappeared! I delighted to share that Cambridge Towel still has it's once a year tent sale where the bargains are genuine.
Cambridge Towel is nestled in Cambridge Ontario and has a long history in the town. Originally started in the early 1900s it has been at its present location since the 1960s. It has a reputation of quality manufacturing and is proud that the cotton used in the towels is grown in America with the manufacturing done in Canada. It is one of the last North American towel manufacturers.
Their yearly tent sale is well known to locals who scoop up great bargains of quality towels with a mix of other items also available.
Set up in the field beside their manufacturing plant the tent is filled with products in cardboard bins and set out on tables.
With prices like 25 inch and 27 inch towels for $5 each and 30 inch towels at $6 each it is no wonder people stock up. 35 inch bath sheets sell for $8.50 and hand towels sell for $2.50.
Some of the other great money saving deals I saw were, pillows $10, feather filled comforters $25 (only one style), dish towels sets for $5, pillow cases $4 for a pair and a variety of other items.
This sale is a great opportunity to buy towel sets for up coming bridal showers, for kids leaving home for college and university, to update your own towels and to buy quality towels in fabulous colors for your pool or crisp white ones to have spa days with.
If you have guest coming for the holidays it is wonderful to be able to offer them some eye popping colored towels to use (and a perfect way to keep the guest towels separate from the regular towels.)
If you are in Southern Ontario in the next few days then this sale is worth the drive out to Cambridge for towels.
