The Cost of High Rents

Filed Under: Zannee’s Tips, Inside Scoop,

By Suzanne O'Connor

If you’ve lived in Southern California for any amount of time you know two things….traffic sucks and rents are ridiculous.

It’s not just people and families that suffer with high rents eating up their paychecks and limiting where they can afford to live, it’s businesses too. It drives up the costs, that you and I eventually pay for.  High rents also force businesses to relocate into lower rent areas to try to control costs and stay in business. 

A trend that is increasing now is Sample and Warehouse Sales as well as manufacturer outlets being found in the San Gabriel Valley / Inland Empire. Both the Toms Warehouse Sale and Hurley Warehouse sale have been held in Ontario. There are more Patio Furniture Warehouses sales in the Inland Empire than there were just a few years ago.

In the San Gabriel Valley I have noticed several clothing manufacturers including 24/ 7 Comfort, Trina Turk and Isabella & Chloe having their some of their sales as well as moving their outlets there too.
Pottery Barn now has an outlet there.

It’s a growing trend that will force us to drive a bit further through bad traffic than we normally do. So to get the best deals, it’s time to car pool more and bargain hunt with a friend… or two.
