lululemon hamilton warehouse sale 2010

(Psst... This is so 2010. Check out the details for the 2012 lululemon warehouse sales happening in Ottawa and Chicago.) 

Time is ticking… we’re less than a week away from the 2010 lululemon Warehouse Sale (aka Homecoming Party!) in Hamilton, ON. Excitement is building, product is being shipped, and Homecoming decorations are being hung.

Warehouse Sale 101? We’ve searched high and low, from East to West, and sourced the very best Warehouse Sale tips out there – and we’re going to share them with you below. You can thank us later!

Tip #1
Follow @lululemonWHS on Twitter. This is where we’ll be sharing up-to-the-minute news about line lengths, broadcasting new product hitting the floor, and putting the ‘party’ in Warehouse Party! Tweeting to us? Use the hashtag #lululemonWHS!

Tip #2

Bring as little with you to the sale as possible. This will keep the line moving quickly and you won’t have to use our bag check!

Tip #3
lululemon giftcards will not be accepted at the sale. Cash, debit and credit only, please! If you are paying with a credit card, photo ID will be required to complete your purchase.

Tip #4
Thanks to @aimbrogno for this tweeting us this tip: “Use your yoga-breath to get you through the chaos!” Make like the manifesto, breathe deeply and enjoy the moment.

Tip #5
Are you on Foursquare? You should be! (Hint, hint!) Share the love and leave tips for your fellow shoppers too!

Tip #6
This tip comes from @lightfooted on Twitter: “There's just 1 big change room (one for men, one for women), so don't be shy, wear easy slip-off clothes, ask others for their opinions & have fun!”

Tip #7
RSVP to our Warehouse Sale Facebook event. We’ll be uploading pictures, sharing video clips and posting updates here.

Tip #8
If you move through the sale quickly, you may just get an extra surprise from us! Know your size and what you’re looking for. More details to come…

Tip #9
Will you be buying pants? You can take them to any lululemon store location for complimentary hemming!

Tip #10

Have fun! This is going to be the homecoming party to end all homecoming parties… enjoy every moment!

Hey MK,

Have you checked out the ‘We Made Too Much’ section on the lululemon website (http://bit.ly/cfvfCs)?

The lines were ridiculous on Thursday – over 5 hour wait just to get in! Plus really long lines for the change room as well as the cash – overall not worth the $20 savings on a hoodie.

Very Disappointed, I made the drive from Toronto to Hamilton for the sale. The line was wrapped around the building, I unfortunately did not have the time (1.5hr)to wait in the line.

I drove back home with nothing & very disappointed.
