SDM Valentine Chocolate clearance

At what time they start the clearance at SDM? Tonight, tomorrow morning, or after?

I went to three SDMs this evening. First one had many empty shelves. Second one was regular priced (or just no sale tags put on). Third one had two small baskets of clearance items. Items I saw on clearance didn’t really interest me (Eg. smarties, chocolate hearts, hard candies, etc.). Walmart’s and grocery stores were closed in Toronto. May find some better sales in those stores tomorrow.

Often SDM will mark down before the holiday arrives / is over

This is true ... be it candy for Valentines, Easter, Halloween or Christmas

So the day after ... the shelves are empty ... and store employees can get right onto loading up the next Seasonal item that’s been waiting in the back room to be unpacked

Usually the day before the holiday, special day, etc.

I often wonder if they pull everything and send it back to the warehouse (either to destroy, wholesale or save for next year).

The SDM beauty warehouse has some VERY old merchandise, so I wouldn't put it past them to hang onto some stuff....
