Powell’s Midnight Madness Sale (September 2012)

In Books on September 30, 2012 at 10:16 am


My favorite consumer event is the annual Powell’s on 57th Street Midnight Madness Sale, where every item (under $50) is half-off between 9pm and Midnight (if you own or buy a Powell’s T-shirt or tote bag).  I sat out last year’s sale, mostly because I felt like I was running out of space for books, but I’ve moved since then, and space is the least of my concerns.  The key is to get to the store early, maybe 8pm, while you can still move around freely.  Alternately, showing up around 11-11:30 is ok, even if not quite as easy as earlier.
