Gymboree Canada: Big Red Balloon Semi-Annual Sale Up To 70% Off


*Select styles only. Prices may vary in-store and online.

I love shopping at Gymboree, their stuff is unique and super cute. Though their regular prices are higher than other children’s clothing stores, when you wait for a sale such as this one you can get really awesome deals. Remember that it’s also Gymbucks earning time until January 15, 2012 where you earn $25 Gymbucks for every $50 purchase.

    Shopped in store today – great deals – shorts were $5.59 and tee were $3.19 and accessories were 79 cents with a 20% coupon, my kids are set for summer and only $200 spent 🙂 Happy!

    Ya, but watch out for the duty charges/brokerage fees online. They negate any savings. I’ll never order from them again. It adds 30-50% to your order.

    I agree with Insane. I received an order today that i had placed online, paid $49 duty/brokerage on a $179 order (plus $16 shipping). Brutal. I’ll never order from them again either.

    When you order online, it’s not Gymboree that is charging duty and brokerage fees- it’s Canada Customs and Revenue, and Canada Post charges the brokerage fee. When you order from any foreign retailer online, if the clothing items were made outside of the USA, you will be charged roughly 37% of your total order for duties and brokerage.
    When you order $20 or under, CCRA doesn’t charge anything.
    Other countries, such as Australia, don’t have customs or duty on clothing orders under $1000 (or maybe $1600, can’t remember at the moment). Anyhow, if you don’t like it, it isn’t the company’s fault- it’s the government that is applying these charges.
    I do wish (REALLY wish!) that Gymboree would have a Canadian site that we could order from, like Gap/Old Navy/Banana Republic implemented recently!

    Actually Kari, it’s not Canada post. It’s DHL Global Mail now, so you get dinged worse. It was way better when they just used Canada post as the brokerage fees were lower. I really dislike DHL

    I used to think Gymboree was so so so expensive!!! Until I found a way to bargain shop… when they have there 25% off clearance or 30% off fill a bag there’s usually a 20% coupon or coupon code you can get which means you saving 45-50%. I always shop online bc its soooooooooooooo much cheaper!!! I saved over $200 and bought 2 wardrobes for my son and daughter and only spent $105. Plus I earned Gymbucks 🙂
