I was interested to try the New York and Company Closet rental box because the store that was in our mall closed down. I have tried other boxes in the past but they were mostly ridiculously priced items (I am a working mom). I knew New York and Company was reasonably priced so I thought – hey lets give it a try. I originally started the subscription in April 2018 so I am into month four at this point. With taxes added the subscription is $53.45 and you pay for any items you choose to keep.
I loved their clothes before I ever ordered the subscription, so I knew that it was classic/trendy items that would be in the boxes.
This is a rental subscription so you don’t have to buy anything if you don’t want to
If you do choose to buy it’s at a discounted price
You get to change up your wardrobe each month with new items
There are a variety of options to choose from to put in your closet and new items are added two or three times a week
They’d have you believe that turn around is super quick – it’s not. Even though you can “return notify them” it’s still going to take about a week to get another shipment. For instance – If I notify them on Monday (and actually put it in the mail on Monday) – the new box won’t get back to me until Friday or Saturday – sometimes even Monday of the next week. My shipments come from Ohio so maybe if your closer it won’t take as long?
If rental clothing is an issue – this isn’t the box for you
There’s only one membership option
While you can choose items as priority it’s never guaranteed that you’ll get these items – I’ve had eight shipments and I think I’ve received two priority options. The first box I got a priority item out the gate but I’ve not been so lucky since then.
I have had a really good experience with the service. As a working mom it helps to get rid of wearing the same old clothes every week and as my weight changes it allows me to work with different sizes. I will continue to use the service in the coming months. Below are photos of some of the items I’ve gotten from NY and Company Closet.
