Does climbing gear go on sale?

Does climbing gear ever go on sale?

A full climbing rack costs ~$500-$1000. (Rope, grigri, helmet, draws, crashpad)

MEC's 60% clearance event has no gear on sale.
Sail has "In Store Only" items, none available in Ontario.
Waiting patiently for Atmosphere/Sport Chek's Friends & Family discounts... Some gear available.

Anyone successfully purchase climbing gear on sale?

Thanks!

Really depends what you were looking for in terms of climbing gear:
- Some of the climbing gyms with shops had shoes, ropes, and other items on clearance during covid because they had to close down the gyms to recoup some cost.
- Lacordee had a few pretty decent sales like alpine draws, ropes
- Sportchek/atmos had BD sale last year when BD announced new gear including cams/hexes/nuts... they've had Grigri on sale at least 2 times or so in 2019.
- The Last Hunt had a lot of helmets on sale; although i dont think they sell climbing stuff anymore
