Le Creuset Factory-to-Table Sale Event
Le Creuset Announces First Factory-to-Table Sale Event in Nashville
Le Creuset, known for its trusted premium cookware, has announced that its third Factory-to-Table sale event will be held in Nashville, Tenn., at the Music City Center on Friday and Saturday, September 29 and 30, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, October 1, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a special early shopping event Thursday, September 28, 4 to 9 p.m. Each shopping session features special discounts on a large selection of Le Creuset products from around the world, including colors and shapes rarely seen in the American marketplace. Tickets, which are now available for purchase in two-hour shopping sessions here, are $10 for Friday and Saturday and free-of-charge Sunday with pre-registration online and the donation of a pantry item. One hundred percent of the proceeds from all ticket sales benefit local nonprofit partners, The Nashville Food Project and Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.
"After incredible response to our first Factory-to-Table event in Charleston, South Carolina, in September 2016 and our second ever event in Ft. Worth, Texas, in early 2017, we felt Nashville seemed like a perfect fit with its impressive culinary culture, Southern and sophisticated charm and dynamic economic growth trend," said Diane Foster, Le Creuset VP of Retail. "As we've grown as a company, the number of best-in-class products we produce has grown as well. We're excited to put a huge assortment of these products under one roof and to give our valued consumers this special chance to get great deals on Le Creuset items! We’re equally excited to be able to give back to the Nashville community through ticket proceeds from our Factory-to-Table event benefitting two local nonprofits making a huge difference in the fight against hunger."
VIP Means Early Access
The Factory-to-Table sale event kicks off Thursday evening, September 28, with a special VIP Hospitality Event at the Music City Center from 4 until 9 p.m. The event, which is offered to the public at a premium ticket price of $25, grants early access to the floor products and sales, demos and meet-and-greets with Nashville’s top chefs, live music, tasty bites and sips to fuel shoppers, and more.

Shopping for a Worthy Cause
Le Creuset has tapped Music City-based nonprofits The Nashville Food Project and Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee as the benefiting charity partners of the Nashville Factory-to-Table sale event.
