Just when you thought it was safe to put down the credit card – not so fast. January Winter “White Sales” are in full force, both online and in stores, and it could be a great time to save on new bedding, pillows, and even select mattresses.
What exactly is a White Sale? It’s an opportunity for retailers to sell their excess inventory at a discount following the holiday shopping season.
The first sale was created by legendary Philadelphia department store owner John Wanamaker in 1878. “The reason it was called a white sale is simple, most bed linens and towels were only available in white during this period, wrote luxury linen company Schweitzer Linen in a blog post. “Later in the 1950’s when colors and prints were becoming popular, they were added to the ‘White Sale’ and the name remained the same.”
