July is a BIG month for clearance deals! Here are some of the sales and clearance deals you can expect to find at Target in July. These are the major departments that we will see clearance in, but really almost every department will have great clearance deals this month.
Toy Clearance: The BIGGEST deal at Target in July is probably the 70% off toy clearance. Toward the end of July, Target marks down a nice selection of clearance toys to 70% off. They do this in order to make room for the new toys that are coming in for the holiday season. You can learn more about the Target 70% off toy clearance HERE. The markdown usually takes place the last week of July.
Remember, most stores markdown their toys on Thursdays, so that is the day the markdown will probably take place. There is no guarantee which day it will happen, it’s just a “wait and see” kind of thing. I will be posting lots of information regarding the clearance sale throughout July in order to keep you informed. Make sure you “like” All Things Target on Facebook to stay up-to-date on this big sale.
If I had to make a guess, I would say that the markdown will probably take place on Thursday, July 27th. Having said that, I have noticed my store already has some toys at 50% off, so they may mark things down in waves instead of all at once.
Summer Clearance: Another great section that goes on clearance is the summer section. All of the items they brought in for summer will get marked down in July. These items will go as low as 90% off!! Check out this post for a peek at some of the items that will be included in the summer clearance. Here are the days the markdowns took place last year (just to give you an idea of when they may happen this year):
- July 11th – 50% off
- July 13th – 70% off
- July 16th – 90% off
School Supplies: July is a great time to buy school supplies! My store has already started stocking the back of the store wtih lunch boxes, folders, crayons and more. We should see some great sales as well as coupons for school supplies that can even translate to FREE items.
Patio & Garden Clearance: The remaining patio furniture and garden clearance should go down to 70% off sometime in July. Last year many people saw these items go to 70% off the first week in July. I have heard from several people that have already had their store go to 70% off so I am thinking you should see the markdown very soon if it hasn’t happened at your store yet. They need to clear out the department so they can make room for all the school supplies.
Baby, Shoes & Clothing: We should also see some baby items, like car seats go on clearance to 50-70% off during the month of July. Most stores reported the 70% off markdown happening the last week of July last year. We should also see some shoes and clothing get marked down to 70% off this month too. The baby markdowns usually happen on a Monday.
With so many departments clearing things out we will see lots of brand new items at Target too. I love, love, love shopping Target in July!!
