There has been much belly aching (mostly by me) about how Target’s clearance schedules this year have been all wonky. At my two local stores, I’ve seen things sit at 30% off while other stores in the region were at 70%. Or I’ve been in one day where clearance prices were 30% only to the next day jump to 70%. Don’t even get me started on how Halloween Clearance magically sprouted to 90% with no rhyme or reason.
These fluctuating savings made me very nervous for the July toy clearance, one of my favorite times of the year. But all the worry was for nothing! My first visit saw a load of 30% discounts and quite a few 50%. That was encouraging. Imagine my joy when I returned this week to see the 30%s had moved to 50%s and some toys that weren’t discounted the first time around were now at 30%. It was so…on schedule. So logical. It filled my Type A, savings loving heart with joy.
Dare I dream than next week we’ll see drops to 70%?
If you’re in the market for reasonably priced toys, now is the time to check out the clearance. It sounds like most stores are keeping their sale merchandise in aisle instead of separating it like they have in the past, so make sure you are scouting out the whole section. Remember, availability and discounts will vary by region.
