A few years ago I attended one such "Closed Door" event put on by a swimwear retailer at Pacific Fair onrepparttar 127289 Gold Coast. The free gift was a pair of bike shorts.

It was a Monday night so most shops were closed yetrepparttar 127290 shopping centre was absolutely packed with people who were all there to attendrepparttar 127291 "closed door sale". There were queues leading out intorepparttar 127292 car park ... imagine that, people queuing up just to get intorepparttar 127293 store. They weren't just taking their nibblies and their free gift and leaving, they were buying up and buying up big time. It was extraordinary.

Here's another example ...

One of our customers, a furniture importer was having a clearance sale of a range of unusual pieces that didn't match her usual collection, and instead of offeringrepparttar 127294 furniture torepparttar 127295 public, she ran a closed door event where she sent out invitations to 50 people. As a gift for attending, she gave guests picture frames that she had picked up for a song. All up, 57 people visited and she soldrepparttar 127296 entire collection.
