The Bath and Body Works Semi-Annual Sale 2020 started yesterday online and I don’t know how they achieved it but they unlocked new levels of suck with this sale. We all know the past several years the sale has been pretty bad. We all yearn for the days when the bins were overflowing with Holiday goodies, candle holders, accessories, and Tutti Dolci. Long gone are those days!. I read a recent rumor on Instagram where someone said the sale wouldn’t even be referred to as a Semi-Annual anymore. That the Semi-Annual would take place once a year, after Christmas, and the June/Summer sale would be just labeled as a “Summer Sale”. Obviously, that wasn’t true as they are still very much promoting it as the Semi-Annual.
Typically, during the Semi-Annual they do bring back old favorite signature scents like Vanilla Bean and the Coconuts everyone adores. However, it’s understandable this didn’t happen this year as COVID-19 likely had their factories on lock down. That being said I thought with stores closed up they would have a lot more clearance available online from Spring. But online the sale is looking rather bleak. Most items are 50% Off at best and nothing lower than that. $12.50 candles? Meh! $7.75 Fragrance Mists? Double meh!
I have seen people lining up outside stores for two hours and many of these stores are well stocked with items marked down 75% . Obviously, the sale is looking a bit better in store than it does online. My own stores are not yet open so, online shopping it is for me. But I didn’t even bother as the sale is disappointing. Honestly, even when my stores do open I have a feeling the selection will be disappointing.
Good news though!
I’m saving money so thanks Bath and Body Works for having another sucky Semi-Annual Sale this year.
