Le Creuset is hosting their annual four-day Factory-to-Table Sale at the Park Expo & Conference Center this fall, which means truckloads of their high-end and brightly colored cookware will be 40 to 70 percent off.
Expect to find Dutch ovens, skillets, fry pans, stockpots, saucepans, cooking accessories, hard-to-find pieces and other kitchen essentials at highly discounted prices.
The pop-up sale has been hosted in Charleston, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Denver and Nashville so far, and this will be its first time it’s in Charlotte. Very cool.
How it works: The sale kicks off on Thursday, Sept. 12 with two ticketed VIP sessions (3:30-6 p.m.and 6:30-9 p.m.) which allow you to shop for longer and get the first pass. VIP tickets cost $30 and include parking and snacks, and you can snag a $50 mystery box with $200-plus worth of Le Creuset items. The sale is open to the public Sept. 13-15, and your $10 ticket gets you two hours of shopping. You can register here.
Pricing: Everything will be marked down 40 to 70 percent. To give you a frame of reference, their least expensive regular-priced skillet starts at $120, their most expensive skillet starts at $275, and tons of gadgets are regularly priced under $50 — so you can expect to find some high-quality kitchen items under $100 at the pop-up sale.
Where: The pop-up will be at the Park Expo & Conference Center, 800 Briar Creek Road.
Fun fact: A portion of the proceeds from the sale are going to Meals on Wheels America. You get to buy things on sale and help other people — it’s a win-win.
