Gail, when and where is your factory sale?

I'm also looking forward to the factory sale.  I went last year and I recall it being on a tricky noncontiguous street on the edge of Elizabeth, NJ*. 
If it's the traditional first Saturday of December, it would be only a week away.

*Googling shows the 1000 Jefferson Ave address, and mapping reveals the park and train tracks that made it so hard to find.

Thanks.  Gail responded and sent me the info.  It is on december 1 in Elizabeth.  Is the factory sale a bargain?

As a true factory sale, there was a wide spectrum of discounts.  Current production leather offerings were less than 25% off, whereas there was an entire room of '$40 or less' items that was filled with dated stock, odd sizes (racks of size 36 leather moto jackets) and returns. 

Selection is huge.  The pricing system was not perfectly clear, but there were people there to explain it.  I used extreme discretion and only got two jackets for a total of $120 (retail of ~$250 ea).

What are the exact hours?  I believe they close up fairly early.

I will be at the factory sale. I haven't been on the boards in awhile and was looking specifically for this info. Last year when I went, it was worth it to show up early, as many of the items in my size (48~50") were bought up quickly. I am bringing several friends and I want to thank the Schott company for having a sale like this.

As a side note - in looking over the various messages from the past few months - it looks like several 'trolls' have appeared (someone who intentionally posts controversial or contrary messages in an on-line discussion forum or group with the intention of baiting users into an argumentative response) its a shame really - but freedom of speech and all that...
