July is a BIG month for clearance deals! It is one of the best months for saving at Target. Here are some of the sales and clearance deals you can expect to find at Target in July. In listing the major clearance deals that will happen in certain departments, but really almost every department will have some great clearance deals this month.
Toy Clearance: One of the biggest deals 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 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. I already have a post up sharing some of the Target toys that are part of the clearance this year.
If I had to make a guess, I would say that the markdown might take place on Thursday, August 1st. We’ll keep an eye on things and give you updates as the end of the month draws closer.
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 should 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. This clearance should also include the 4th of July items, the lemonade and the camping items from the Target Dollar Spot.
Last year, Target did something unusual and marked down the entire summer section with yellow clearance stickers. This was not normal, this section has always been treated like a holiday line in previous years. I am hoping we won’t see a similar type of markdown this year, but we will have to wait and see. These are the types of sales that I use to stock up on items to give as gifts. Think ahead and buy things for teacher gifts, party favors and more. This markdown generally happens the last two weeks of July. In some areas it may happens sooner because they need this section to stock school supplies.
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, but our store just marked things down this week so I don’t see that happening for me anytime soon.. You can get a peek at some of the patio and outdoor items I found on clearance at my store. They need to clear out the department so they can make room for all the school supplies.
Baby Clearance We should also see some baby items, like car seats , strollers, bedding and more get marked down to 50-70% off during the month of July. Last year, most stores reported the 70% off markdown happening the last week of July. If you want to check this department each week the best day to go will be Monday, because that is usually when the markdowns in the baby department happen. You can check our guide for what days all of the markdowns happen in each department.
Clothing & Shoes Clearance – We see a larger amount of clearance in the clothing and shoe department due to the fact that they will now be bringing in clothing for fall and winter.
School Supplies: July is a great time to buy school supplies! We should see some great sales as well as coupons for school supplies that can even translate to FREE items. Soon, we will add a school supplies section to our weekly coupon match-ups to keep you posted on all the best back-to-school deals.
Target Deal Days: Get ready! Target will be going head to head with Amazon on Prime Day and offering Target Deal Days online at Target.com.
