Target Clearance Today, Goodwill Tomorrow
Ever wonder what happens to Target clearance merchandise that nobody buys? As I wrote about in my article, Hitting the Bullseye: Strategies for Shopping at Target, Target follows a fairly consistent clearance strategy – 15%, 30%, 50%, 70% off and sometimes even 90% off (seasonal items seem to be the only ones that ever hit 90% off). Much of it is sent to Goodwill Industries. In fact, Goodwill stores offer many brand-new Target items (sometimes for less than their Target clearance prices).
During one of my recent trips to Goodwill I spotted many of Target’s winter clearance items I’ve been reporting to you on over the past month or so. So, if you missed Target’s clearance buys – you’re not out of luck yet. Head on over to the nearest Goodwill store for another chance at finding a great deal!
