Q: What is a Showcase sample sale?
A: A Showcase sample sale lasts from 1 to 5 days, providing our members with access to highly discounted designer items. Stock is provided directly from the luxury brands we work with. This can consist of this season’s excess or pieces from previous seasons and genuine samples.

Q: How do I shop at a Showcase sample sale?
A: Showcase members are able to book events and select a dedicated time slot. As Showcase offers tiered membership options, not all time slots will be available to each member. For in-store sales you must come during your allotted time or you may not be allowed in. For online sales, you must shop and checkout during your allocated time slot.


Q: What memberships are available?
Our membership tiers include our General (in-store only), Priority (early access in-store and online), and VIP (VIP access for in-store and online). See more on our memberships page.

Q: Why is Priority or VIP membership better than General? 
Our brand partners only give us a limited amount of stock in limited sizes. The sooner you access the sale the wider range of products will be available for you to purchase. Priority and VIP members have regular access to  online events with preferred time slots.

Q: How long is my membership?
All memberships are valid for 12 months and automatically renew.

Q: How do I cancel my membership?
We are sorry to see you go. Please email to cancel your membership and your membership will automatically end at the end of the current 12 month period and not be renewed. We do not offer refunds on membership fees.

Q: Can General tier members access online sales? 
A: Normally, no as our brands give us access to strictly limited and private offers that they don’t want available to the public on the internet. While Covid-19 social distancing regulations are being enforced, we have arranged an exception which allows general members to shop online. Please note that as with in-store events, only time slots towards the last period or the last day of the sale will be available to General members.


Q: I cannot see the online store on the website. How do I access it?
Online sales are not available for public access as they are restricted to your member account. They become available when you click your unique ticket link in your confirmation email or by accessing the My Bookings section. Once you are in the online store you only have until your time slot ends to shop and checkout your basket.

Q: Can I share my online account?
A: Please do not share your account details with others. Online store access is controlled through your Showcase member account and for your personal use only. Multiple baskets, browsers or tabs could result in a loss of your shopping basket.


Q: What products will be on sale?
Products will vary by brand but we aim to offer a range of brands focusing on womenswear, menswear, footwear, accessories, leather goods and jewellery. All items will be discounted at up to 80% off RRP.

Q: Do you sell seconds?
A: While not the majority of stock, faulty, damaged and seconds items are available but will always be clearly detailed in the item’s tag (in-store) or description (online). Please be sure to check you are happy with the item as, to enable us to offer the same high discounts online, we operate a very strict refund policy.

Q: Are all sizes available?
A: All stock availability will be dependent upon the brand. Please check specific listings as items will be limited in style and size.

Q: Will there be size guides available?
A: As we are working directly with brands, it is encouraged that you refer to the brand’s website for specific size guides for clothing, footwear and accessories.
