As I said I don't really know about other FS since this isn't really a "store sale" and I don't want to promise everyone is going to get great deals. I just know personally at my store my DSM wants to get rid of all OB and clearance so he prices it to move. We're also doing 50% off our Open Box table tomorrow I believe.

My manager had marked the things on the table but other things weren't marked (such as cameras and camcorders). Just ask the Sales Associate to ask a manager how low they can go and they should hopefully swing you something good.

There will probably be some good deals out there but a lot of it is going to be missing parts or in bad shape. A lot of what is sold at these low prices is the stuff that was found in a filing cabinet in the back or that was returned missing accessories and no one wanted during the rest of the year.

Went to FS at 16th and Yonge - nothing happening there - only regular discounts on open box items

Went to BB at Hwy 7 and Yonge - absolutely nothing going on there

Went to FS at Hwy 7 and Warden - a small shelf of open box items, including A/C adapters, some MP3 accessories, etc

Had to cross the city (Winnipeg) today, so I hit 2 Futureshop locations, saw nothing, so probably something that is specific to the OP's store.

The smaller stuff (that doesn't require negotiation) are on two racks - one near GPS's, and the other in the gaming section. I believe there was a Gameboy Micro for $6.97 (location specific; YMMV) as well as PS2 controllers for a buck or so. Big ticket items (such as TV's/Computers) will require you actually talking to a salesperson. Depending on how well you get them to believe that you're serious on buying - they'll show you some clearance units and shoot you an offer for them.
