The 64th annual Army and Navy Shoe Sale is coming up this month with discounts at every location including Vancouver (Gastown), New Westminster, Langley, Calgary, Edmonton Whyte Avenue and Edmonton Londonderry Mall.
The dash for deals will begin at 8:00am on Wednesday, April 24th with savings on premium brands like BCBG, Steve Madden, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Eli Tahari, Franco Sarto, Pour La Victorie, Bandolino, Marc Fisher and Kelsi Dagger. There will be over 100,000 pairs up for grabs and many priced under $40.
Back in 2008 I interviewed a Junior Buyer for the Shoe Department at Army and Navy who gave me some tips for Shoe Sale first-timers:
“I would definitely recommend for everyone to wear flip flops! That way you just slip them off and try on a new pair. Because the sale is so popular, it gets very full, so wearing something light and comfortable is ideal. Another great tip is to grab a basket or the complimentary Army and Navy shopping bag, fill it with all the shoes you like, and grab yourself an empty corner to try your shoes on. That way you don’t have people grabbing from your stash…yes the competition is fierce. For those shoppers who aren’t able to make it right at 8:00am, don’t worry we stock up the shelves all day, and especially for the lunch and after work rush. Once you have picked out your fantastic pairs of shoes, you are able to purchase them at any till in the store.”
Army and Navy has offered up a VIP opportunity for a lucky Miss604 reader and their guest. Our contest winner will receive VIP entry into Army and Navy in Gastown at 7:30am (beating the rush and the line) on Wednesday, April 24, 2013. The winner will also receive a $25 gift certificate.

Since 1919 Army and Navy Shoe Sale has been 100% Canadian owned and operated by the Cohen family and the Vancouver store was the one that began that legacy. This year’s Army and Navy Shoe Sale will run from Wednesday, April 24th until Sunday, May 5th. Follow Army and Navy on Twitter and Facebook.
I will draw one winner at random from all entries on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at 2:00pm.
Update The winner is Kristen!
