Good thing you're out there to keep us on our toes.

We got an email a few days ago from a reader who remembered our post about last year's Filson warehouse sale and wanted to know when this year's discount bonanza was going down.

A few phone calls later we discovered that it isn't.

The Seattle-approved brand launched its first factory store at the Shoppes at Burlington—about an hour and change north from downtown Seattle—where the company now sends all of its seconds, returned, and discounted items.

Rather than hold an annual warehouse sale, this new store will give bargain-hunters a chance to find Filson’s signature outerwear discounted from 30 to 70 percent off all year long.

This Burlington location can’t be “Binged,” “Yelped,” or “Googled.” It isn’t even listed on Filson’s site. Perhaps, until now, the new Filson Factory Store was one of Washington’s best-kept secrets.
