I have some bad news folks! It appears as if the black star dollar spot items were salvaged at 50% off. We didn’t see them even make it to 70% off, they were all removed from the dollar spot. If these items went 70% off at your store, please let us know!
I posted last week that the black star dollar spot items went on clearance for 50% off on September 2nd. In the past, the dollar spot clearance items have gone from 50% to 70% off usually 3 days after they hit 50% off. A reader let me know that the valid date on the 50% off sign at her store said “valid through 9/8″, which seemed to mean that the items would go 70% off on 9/9 instead of 9/5 like I predicted. Unfortunately, it seems like all the dollar spot items that were on clearance were removed and not marked down to 70% off at all.
I have received numerous reports from people and found the same thing at my store.
It sounds like the next time we see a clearance in the dollar spot you may want to buy everything you want to 50% off, because it may not make it to 70% off. Only time will tell!
