  • Critics choice

We love how affordable this Canadian chain usually is, but the latest sale—happening at all Joe Fresh locations in NYC—features unbeatable savings. Already reduced merch is now an additional 50 percent off. For ladies, that means white lace shorts that were originally $49 are now $12, and an eyelet beach cover-up dress is just $14.50 (was $89). Guys will find equally amazing deals at the store, too.

You changed the format of the sample sales page. Now it's a mess. Keep it simple, dum dums. Only sample sales on the sample sale page, with dates, times and location, all on one page.
