I have received word from tons of people that the 70% off clearance has in fact started at their Target stores today (1/16). I am also hearing that while there are quite a few items marked down to 70% off there are still some items that have remained at 30-50% off (probably LEGOs and a few other items). Keep in mind that clearance can vary by location, so there is chance that the markdown has not taken place at your store. You can keep on eye on this Facebook post and this Facebook Post for what people are reporting at their location.
Make sure you don’t pay attention to the 30% or 50% off signs on the shelves, check the individual price stickers to see if they are 70% off. You will see a number in the top right hand corner that will tell you what percent they have been marked down. You may also want to scan an item or two just to double check.
I do not recommend calling the stores, the employees up front aren’t usually aware of the markdown and you may get incorrect information.
I would LOVE to see photos of the toys and so would everyone else. You can share your photos the following ways:
