Savers opening in St. Louis!

Gucci, Movado, Dooney & Bourke, Louis Vuitton—a few of the labels I spotted last night during a sneak peek of the Savers thrift store opening tomorrow, Thursday, September 27, in Ellisville.  Yes, y’all.  Savers, an international thrift retailer with more than 280 stores across the U.S. and Canada, is finally opening in the St. Louis area.

Savers store at 15892 Clayton Road, Ellisville, MO

This Savers location houses over 100,000 items on the sales floor.  And, Savers stores get about 5000 new items daily.  I got a glimpse at how quickly inventory is renewed when the two Dooney & Bourke bags below were purchased (one by me) and a store associate swiftly restocked the case with two different Dooney bags.  I promptly asked if I could see the entire stash.  She assumed I was joking though.  I wasn’t 🙂

The designer bags and chunky gold jewelry on sale at this location are all right on trend.
The prices are just right too!

What you’ll find in this new Savers is a well-organized store.  Clothing, for example, is organized by item type (skirts, dresses, blouses) and then by size, making the search for treasures a tad easier.  I was also impressed by the well-curated collection of clothing for sale.  I saw all the labels I regularly shop and love (J.Crew, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor) as well as a sizable selection of items that looked vintage, all for low prices.

A look at the racks of jeans on sale.
This Savers has fairly large fitting rooms for your convenience.

Of course, I didn’t leave Savers empty-handed.  Check out my mini haul.  

The clothing I purchased looks brand new.  I tried on several items and most of them showed
no signs of wear.

Savers will host its grand opening this Thursday at 9 am.  If you plan to stop by, sign up for a super Savers cub card to receive alerts about special deals like 50% off clothing days, and enter for a chance to win a $100 gift card.

Disclosure:  I was invited to attend the VIP sneak peek event at Savers and received a gift certificate to shop at the event.  No monetary compensation was received for writing this post.  As always, all the ideas and opinions expressed are my own.

    This store is one of my favorites, unfortunately they are all in the suburbs and I rarely make it out there.

      I'm even more excited about Savers now, then, because you're a thrifting expert! This new store is a bit of a drive from my house too, but I think I'd be willing to make that drive often 🙂

    I'm definitely going to have to check this store out when I come home to visit next month! Never heard of Savers Village–looking forward to it 🙂

      Definitely! You'll love it. I can see you flexing your stylist skills on the gems to be found in this thrift store.

    This looks like a fun place to shop! Thanks for sharing. I've really got to see what kind of things are going on in my area.

      It was so much fun. I actually spent a much longer time there than I had anticipated. A store like this draws you in. Definitely see if there's one in your area. Savers is also affiliated with Value Village thrift stores.

    I am SOOOOO jealous! There are some excellent consignment shops in my area but none that look as Savers. I don't think I have ever heard of them until your post…and my middle name is "bargain savvy" . Enjoy all the savings.

      Thanks, I'll surely be enjoying the savings at Savers.

      I had seen several you-tubers and some fellow bloggers bragging about hauls from Savers. I now totally understand what they were so excited about. I've thrifted sporadically in the past, but I've never had an experience as good as thrifting at Savers. Of course, this store is brand new, so I hope that it stays this fabulous.

    Wow. I want to go to Savers. There is one that will be opening soon about an hour away. I have to find one of my thrift enthusiast buddies to make the trip with me!

    So jealous, what an amazing thrift store! Love your purchases, that dress is beautiful 🙂

    Nice tip. I'm sure they'll get steady items that are good finds. Lots of people like shopping but have to cut back on their clothing budget and only purchase the essentials. Getting deals on clothing at stores such as this one makes it possible to stretch a dollar comfortably.
