By now you've certainly heard about the Carolina Warehouse Sale starting this weekend. It's only been dubbed the "sale of all sales in Charlotte, North Carolina." At least, Vogue thinks so.
Carolina Warehouse Sale is a one-week (June 27-July 4) premiere discount sales event offering top designer items for unbeatable prices. This event will offer shoppers access to a huge inventory from top regional boutiques and national designers and will be held at 4720 Sharon Road (corner of Sharon and Fairview Road in the old Barnes and Noble store).
