Brooks Brothers clearance centre in Garland, NC

Yesterday, I decided to make quite a drive to the Brooks Brothers clearance centre in Garland, NC, USA. There used to be another clearance location in Olathe, KS, but it closed years ago, leaving the one in North Carolina as the only one of its kind. Anyway, as many of you know, Brooks Brothers is my favourite brand of clothing, and so going there made me like a kid in a toy store! Basically, when particular items don’t sell for one reason or another (unusual sizing, unpopular styling, or just overstock), they are put in the “Sale” section of the Brooks Brothers website. They are generally marked down by 25% – 60% from the original tag price. However, if the items still don’t sell, they are ultimately sent to the clearance centre in Garland, NC (which is, naturally, right next to the Piggly Wiggly):

Fortunately for me, I’m a somewhat unusual size. Therefore, there were many items that fit me nicely. The prices at the clearance centre are unlike any other deals that one can get from Brooks Brothers. For instance, I got a sport coat for $29.00 USD instead of the tag price of $598.00 USD (nothing like approximately 95% off :) ). Anyway, I left there with a huge amount of shirts, sweaters, some pants, and even the previously-mentioned sport coat for a mere fraction of what I would have paid for the lot in the store!

Not too bad if I do say so myself… and I do. I’m hoping that I get another opportunity to go to the clearance centre in Garland at some point. I would also like to just spend a day or so in the area, because it is a beautifully quaint little country town, with fresh produce stands lining the roads, Mom & Pop shops, and crafts all around.

P.S. I would imagine that BB chose Garland, NC as the primary outlet centre because they also own the Garland Shirt Company, which manufacturers many of the Oxfords, dress shirts, and sports shirts that are nearly synonymous with the quality that is Brooks Brothers.

  1. Interesting post I was actually doing research on the Garland store myself I wonder if this is the outlet brand of 346 or if it is actual Brooks Brothers clothing. Also, was there a particular or unique sale going on at the time of your visit these prices seem really really low almost to good to be true, I know you mention unique sizes, which applies to me as well, this is just a tough call driving all the way from Charlotte. Thanks.

    • While they do carry some ’346′ outlet brand merchandise (especially a lot of the ties), there are plenty of of items that are authentic Brooks Brothers. Nothing in the photo that I posted was ’346′ label. There wasn’t a unique sale going on that day; just the standard prices. Shirts are typically $19.90, and sweaters are generally $29.90, though there are some other miscellaneous prices.

      I think that it is definitely worth the drive from Charlotte. If you are able to go during the week, that might prove to be even better.

    • Yes, indeed. In the photo, the store front to the right (not under the Brooks Brothers sign) is the room with women’s clothing. That room is filled with suit coats, pants, miscellaneous coats, women’s clothing, and to a lesser degree, some Fleece line (for boys and girls).

      • When you say ‘unusual sizes’, what do you mean? I’d like to stop by Garland myself, but don’t know if it’s worthwhile if we’re not ‘unusual’ sizes.

        • Hello Maureen,

          I’m very small and thin, and that’s what I meant by unusual sizes. For instance, I wear a 34R or 36R in a suit, and only the Green Label (extra-slim fit shirts) fit me (and they’re still a bit baggy). That being said, you should definitely go to the outlet if you’re anywhere near Garland, NC. They don’t ONLY carry unusual sizes, but I found a lot of things in my size.

          Cheers,

    • I know that they’re not open on Sundays, and I believe that they’re open 09:00 – 17:00 Monday through Saturday. I hope that information is correct. If you go and find out otherwise, please let me know, and I will put it on my blog.

      Cheers,

  2. i have been going to BB in Garland. i live in wilmington. i used to be a secret. but i guess the word is out. i can only echo what Zach says. i have gotten suits, ties, shoes, outer coats. they always have khakis and shirts. neat thing is…. they have a rack of monogrammed shirts you can buy for $5. i get my size, take back to seamtress in wilmington. she pulls out the previous monogram then adds mine for another $5. so for $10 i have a first quality, monogramed BB shirt. best to call to see how their inventory is… 910-529-16912. happy shopping.
