Breaking news: the current health crisis has switched up the status quo once again. While we were all looking forward to Old Navy’s iconic $1 flip-flop sale, which was going to happen any day, they’ve decided to cancel the sale due to safety concerns, according to a statement we received from the brand.
“As we re-open our stores, customer safety and maintaining social distancing during the shopping experience is our top priority. Therefore, we will not be holding the $1 flip flop sale this year. We will continue to offer great everyday prices on this summer staple both online and in stores.”
While this customer-favorite sale basically gives the sandals away for free, everyone’s health and well-being is the priority here. The good news is that you can still shop online or in the store if you feel comfortable doing so, and while the sandals may not be $1, you can still get some cute new flip-flops for under $5, so we’re not complaining. The sale went down on June 15 last year, so pencil that date in for 2021. Fingers crossed things will be somewhat back to normal by then and the sale will be back in action. Start saving up those $1 bills you’d usually be using for your daily iced coffee and put them in a safe spot for next year’s haul.
