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. I do know of some stores that do the markdown on Wednesdays, so there is a chance that your store will do the markdown on Wednesday. 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 30th. 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!! Here are the days the markdowns took place last year (just to give you an idea of when they may happen this year):
- 70% off happened around July 13, 2014
- 90% off happened around July 16. 2014
School Supplies: July is a great time to buy school supplies, before you know it we will see the pack of the store filling up with lunch boxes, folders, crayons and more. We should see some great sales as well as coupons for school supplies that can translate to FREE items. Last year we saw FREE pens, Scotch tape, Sharpies, Rose Art items and more.
Patio & Garden Clearance: The remaining patio furniture and garden clearance should go down to 70% off sometime in July. Last year most people saw these items go to 70% off the first week in July. There is a very good chance we can see the same happen this year, 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.
Eddie Borgo for Target: July 12th the next designer line will hit Target stores and Target.com. This line consists mainly of jewelry and bags. You can head HERE to view the Eddie Borgo lookbook.
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!!
