I have often commented on your blog posts about how you guys in the US get the best shopping deals.
Where I live in Canada, not too far from the border, the clearance sections in the stores take off about 10% and call that a clearance. What? A $100.00 item is clearance priced at $90.00? I don’t think so.
Yesterday I went to a clearance centre for the Sears store to look for some tops for work mostly. This is a separate store not part of the regular stores and is all clearance items.
Finally someplace that understands how to clear out merchandise.
Not only was this stuff at a low clearance price but they were taking a further 25% off at the checkout. If I had used my Sears credit card they would have taken off more still.
Here is what I bought….wait until you see the total price
The column on the left is a black skort, a coral, white and cream coloured turtleneck (think fall) and a black tee.
The second column is a nice green faux suede jacket with a zip front and an ivory colour silky shirt.
The 3rd column shows a coral sleeveless shirt and a lovely striped shirt.
Last but not least was a 2 piece set. A beautiful yellow silky tee with a sheer overshirt with a pretty butterfly design.
What did I pay for all this booty? 10 pieces of clothing for $74.00 before our taxes. I would have bought a lot more but because I am only 5’ tall but wear a large size of clothing the sleeves are often too long for me. I will shorten the sleeves on the green jacket but the clothing I left behind had fancy cuffs and stuff that I would not want to try to alter.
That my friends, is what I call a clearance!!!
