Once target marks Womens Clothes down one week, will they mark it down lower the next week?

@jamie Yes, I am guessing the 4th of July kind of threw things off for the week. My store ended up marking down the lawn and garden stuff today instead of Wednesday.

I am wondering if about the girls summer clothes clearance. I know some of it went to 70 off. But there is still alot left. When do you think the rest of the clothes will get marked down again.

It will be on Mondays, they seem to markdown the clothing on a more regular basis than most other departments. It could be as early as this Monday, but I am guessing by Monday, August 13th for sure.

Hello, I was wondering what their schedule is for marking items from 30% to 50% and so on? If an item is on sale at 30% one week, will it be marked to 50% the following week?

Not all “baby” markdowns are on Mondays. Diapers and wipes are Wednesdays. I was a Softlines (clothing) dept manager for ~4 years

Yes, as far as I know it is current. Some stores my vary from the schedule slightly. I have a store here that does their toys on Wednesdays and all the others do theirs on Thursdays.

When is nursery furniture marked down? With baby or with the furniture?

So furniture falls under the Thursday bi weekly category right?

I was at Target today and they had Halloween shirt on the boys clearance it was with other Halloween shirts that were marked at 1.67 I took the shirt I wanted it was the only one like it and I scanned it thinking it would come up as 1.67 but instead it came up as item not found so I went to customer service along with another shirt marked at 1.67 to see if she would just price adjust it, she told me no that since it wasnt in the system she could not sell it to me because all Halloween items had been pulled to be destroyed. Not donated to homeless shelters or needy kids but destroyed and she absolutely would not sell it to me. Is this something that happens often or was she just not wanting to go through the trouble of price adjusting?

Cindy, the Target in our city donates to the local Goodwill stores.

I don’t know what happened but I went to three targets in my area and all of the clearance toys were gone…I was waiting to purchase an item @ 70% off and went today to check to see if it was marked down but when I went all of the clearance toys were gone….I wonder what happened to the toys

Val, after a certain amount of time in clearance they pull them & donate to Goodwill.
