Went in Friday.
It was depressing.
Piles of shoes in aisles, empty boxes.
Most boxes were damaged.
Googled some of the goods, Walmart et al were selling them cheaper at regular price...

Pretty pathetic sale - and what's amazing is how many people are buying. Most things at sears were 50% on a normal sale, so now it's 20% off and people go crazy.

Huge lineups at the one location I stopped at. But, this is the norm for these liquidation sales...I saw a couch listed for $2000 on clearance, that was literally $1200 before the sale.

Oh well..

Wasn't too bad at promenade last night. Men's socks area is a mess but aside from that everything looked pretty neat in spite of how busy it was. Ain't got nothin worth waitin in line for tho. Like there's some pairs of levi's at 50% off, except they're only like 5 bucks less than i paid for them back in the summer lol

That's exactly what the Target nearest me looked like in the first few days. I felt so sorry for the employees working continuously to clean up the mess, it was obviously a loosing battle for them, but they kept fighting....

LOL this looks like someone playing a video game--abandoned department store stage, after zombie apocalypse. Crazy camera moving all over the place just like in an FPS.

Yep it's really deceptive.. I went this morning to the Sarnia store... Nespresso regular price $250.. red sticker price 200,, addtl 20% off.. your price $160... Hardly 50% off the original price... of course there's the magic word in those posters "up to"

in small print: 20% off the already reduced red ticket
In bold print under that: 50% off

The cashier is reminding people that they did not read the sign properly.
There is only 20% off the red ticket. The red sticker is up to 50% (and more) off already...EVEN THOUGH just last week the clearance floor already had a 50% off the red sticker sale.

So, long story short, if it did not sell at 50% off, try it again at 20% off and hope a new liquidation fan won't notice...

Shoppers complain of price hikes during Sears' liquidation sale

" (...) a pair of Tender Tootsies riding boots she bought for $129.99 was $99 or even $79 at other online retailers."

" (...) she tried to bring back her items for a price adjustment or refund on Wednesday evening, but was told by a manager that there was nothing he could do about it."

“I looked at 4 different items I nearly bought a few weeks ago before the liquidation and all of them had their prices changed and were now higher to offset the ‘discount,’”

Vincent Power, a spokesperson for Sears Canada, said the reported markups are probably from regular price increases “some time ago,” as the retailer entered a new season.

Power said customers who encounter such markups will be given a discount off the lower price, and added that customers who find out after they’ve bought products should return to the store for a discount.

Who do you believe?

I mean all of us on RFD knew they were going to raise prices before discounting them. I believe it is actually an illegal practice but what do they have left to lose? I thought shoppers these days wouldn't be fooled as easily as in the past since anyone can just google an item to see how much it sells for anywhere else.
