DO PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES HAVE TO WAIT IN LINE?
Please come to the back door, on the north side of the building.
DO MEMBERS OF THE MILITARY AND PUBLIC SAFETY GET TO ENTER THROUGH ANOTHER ENTRANCE?
Yes. You will need to have a valid military, former military, law enforcement, or other first responder ID or be wearing your uniform. Access is limited to the person with the ID or uniform and one guest only (plus children under 18). With ID, you, one guest, and children under 18 may come to the back door on the north side of the building. Keep in mind that even the first responder line can get long, so be prepared.
Please note, the only acceptable identification is:
• You, with your official ID card
• You, wearing your uniform
• For former military members, DD-214 is acceptable ID
Other first responders include firefighters and EMTs. If you have a question about your specific profession, please contact us before the Sale or leave a comment below.
CAN I BRING MY CHILD?
As long as your child is under your strict supervision. Please remember that we are a knife company, and there will be lots of very sharp knives around the Warehouse Sale. Please use an abundance of caution and good common sense when bringing young children.
Those under 18 are not permitted to touch the Shun kitchen knives. These fixed blades are in cardboard sheaths and can be dangerous to remove if you’re not careful. Adults should pinch the sheath by the face of the knife, not by the edge or spine. Then, carefully remove the sheath.
Just remember, use caution and encourage knife safety at all times.
I’VE SEEN LINES AROUND THE BLOCK FOR THIS. ARE THE PRICES REALLY THAT MUCH BETTER?
You’ll save up to 75% off of our Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices for Kershaw, Shun and Kai Housewares products. So yes, the savings are pretty great.
ARE THESE “FACTORY SECONDS”?
Many of them are. Usually, what makes any of these knives “seconds” are small cosmetic issues—like a tiny scratch or other blemish that only the trained eyes of our quality control inspectors are likely to see. But you will be able to inspect them for yourself and select the ones you want. You will see "XXXX" engraved on the blade of the factory seconds. Factory seconds are not covered under our Limited Lifetime Warranty.
However, in addition to these, there are also many overstock items, as well as one-of-a-kind and few-of-a-kind items. The Warehouse Sale is sort of like a treasure hunt for knife lovers.
WHERE CAN I PARK?
Parking can be a little tough at the busiest times. We will have people directing traffic and helping you find spots. Please remember not to block driveways, fire hydrants, or other cars when parking. Please note that handicapped parking is limited.
HOW CAN I PAY?
Cash, credit cards (including American Express), and checks are all accepted. All sales are final.
CAN I GET MY KNIVES SHARPENED WHILE I’M THERE?
Yes, we will be happy to sharpen Kershaw, Zero Tolerance, Shun, or Kai knives while you shop—with the exception of serrated knives and scissors. Sharpening services are FREE.
ARE SERVICE DOGS WELCOMED?
With their handlers, yes they are. Just be aware that the Warehouse Sale is usually a very crowded with a busy environment.
Please leave non-service animals at home.
WILL ANY OF THESE PRODUCTS BE ON SALE ONLINE?
Before the Warehouse Sale, we will be hosting giveaways on our Facebook and Instagram pages. However, we will not be having any discounts on our website. Be sure to check out our social media feeds if you’re not in the area. Giveaways will take place on December 4th (additional Kai Housewares items will be given away on December 3rd). Giveaway items include Shun products while supplies last. International customers may participate, but they must provide a U.S. or Canadian address. (Portland metropolitan area and Southwest Washington excluded).
WHAT IF I GET HUNGRY OR NEED TO USE THE RESTROOM?
We will have Porta Potties and food trucks on site.
ARE TENTS ALLOWED IN LINE?
Many customers line up days in advanced. And although there is no limit to how early you can line up, we do ask that you be courteous if you choose to bring a tent. We have limited line space that protects from the rain, so we ask that your tents are not unreasonably big or take up too much line space.
