Tips for Clothes Shopping During Store Clearance Sales
You love it when you go shopping and find that my favourite store is having a huge sale. But if you know exactly when an item will be on sale, you can decide whether you want to wait to buy it on the cheap, or you think it’s worth the extra money to buy it beforehand. Armed with the information below, you can save money, look fashionable, and dress the way you want for cheap.
Wait Six to Eight Weeks
The typical retail store lets a new item hang out on the shelves for six to eight weeks before it’s marked down. Merchandise in retail stores is ever-changing, so shop owners can’t afford to have old items languishing on the racks and taking up space.
Thursdays Are Best
If you want first dibs on a pair of shoes you’ve been eyeing, your best bet is to try shopping on a Thursday..
I once found a dress on sale that I loved, but they didn’t have my size. Instead of leaving empty-handed, I asked one of the retail associates if she could check around to see if any of their other store locations had the same dress in stock. As luck would have it, there was another, and the store had it shipped to my house for free.
Shop End of Season
One of the best times to get the most bang for your buck is to shop around the end of a season. Keep in mind that retail stores are a couple of months “ahead of the weather,” so you could still pick up a cheap sweater and get a month’s worth of wear before it’s time to bring out your spring wardrobe.
