Welcome to the second installment of #FrugalFridays! Today I want to highlight a store where you can find workout clothes, sneakers and gear for at least 25% off retail price – Marshall’s.
According to their website, Marshall’s offers current-season brand-name and designer goods for men, women, teens and kids at incredible prices everyday. Their motto is “Never pay full price for fabulous” which is something I can totally get behind. Luckily I live very close to my local Marshall’s – it’s a 10 minute walk – so I try to swing by once a month to see all the new deals. I’m always really impressed with the selection for their fitness apparel and accessories. I’ve gotten some great deals from the store in the past.
Tips to maximize your Marshall’s experience
- Go in with a game plan – This store literally has everything – clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry, home decor, etc. When you enter the store, know where you want to focus your attention. It’s easy to get lost in all the different sections the store offers.
- Shop early – The main complaint I often hear about the store is that you have to spend time searching to find something good. While this may be true, isn’t it worth a few extra minutes to save some cash. Also, if you can, try to go to the store shortly after they open. Chances are the racks will be more organized and the lines will be shorter.
- Use the fitting room – Items that end up at the store are often there for two reasons – an irregular fit or irregular color. Just because you typically wear one size in Nike, doesn’t mean the Nike shirt at Marshall’s in the same size will fit you correctly. Make sure to try on the items and that you like the fit. Also this saves you a trip back to the store to return any items.
Do you need home workout gear? My Marshall’s had a great selection of resistance bands, free weights, kettle bells, exercise balls and water bottles. Looking to take Yoga or Pilates? The store had a great selection of yoga blocks and mats.
A PRO Compression Discount
Changing gears for a bit, PRO Compression is offering a Super Bowl discount good for all items on their website. Use code SUPER to save 40% on their website. Because let’s face it, you’ll need some great compression socks to go along with all those good finds at Marshall’s 🙂 Discount good through Super Bowl Sunday – February 1st!
