It’s about the only thing that gets shoppers in Newport psyched for winter in early August: the annual Helly Hansen Warehouse Sale. Celebrating their 10th anniversary this Friday, Saturday and Sunday (August 7-9), shoppers flock from all over New England and beyond to stock up on footwear, rainwear, foul weather gear, snowboarding jackets, snow sports gear, boating attire, base layer and H/H’s signature fleece for men, women and children, all at up to 75% off. Because of the size of the sale, the Thames Street boutique takes over the nearby Newport Harbor Hotel & Marina where shoppers have a bit more space to dig through and try on new favorite things. Like any warehouse sale, expect crowds and at times, long lines, but the hours are long and bargain hunters won’t be deterred– deals like these are worth the wait.
