But dont go if you want handbags, childrens clothing or home decor items. Those quickly sold out after the pop-up store opened at 9 a.m. Wednesday. The temporary store had occupancy limits, so the line to get in stretched down the sidewalk outside. Some people said they waited about 30 minutes just to get to the halfway point in the line, and more shoppers were coming.
The Kansas City department store company, with stores on the Country Club Plaza and at Crown Center, is clearing out its already discounted end-of-season inventory. Prices at the temporary store are an extra 40 percent off. The sale runs through Sunday in vacant retail space in the Shoppes at Deer Creek Woods, 13308 Metcalf Ave.
We wanted to bring Halls to another demographic to remind people of the exclusive brands we carry, said Kelly Cole, president and chief executive officer of Halls.
Hal Wagner of Leawood was thrilled with his purchases Wednesday morning, filling three shopping bags with items originally priced around a total of $2,000. He said he paid less than $500, including $50 for $250 Uggs and $38 for a $145 designer shirt.
Sale items still include mens and womens clothing and accessories, denim and shoes, but merchandise is skewed more heavily to menswear.
Hours will be 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
