I am having a hard time believing September is here, the month’s just keep going faster and faster. The good news is there are lots of great things to expect at Target in September, here are the sales and clearance deals you should be able to find at your store.
Star Wars Event: 207 Target stores will be opening at midnight on Friday (technically Thursday evening) for Force Friday where you can be one of the first people to purchase the new Star Wars Force Awakens merchandise. Head on over here to see if your store is participating in the midnight opening. Early guests will get a fun giveaway and a chance to win a 4-ft tall Chewbacca.
All Target stores will be celebrating with Share The Force Saturday onSeptember 5th. You can check out their Star Wars Shop, enjoy photo ops, a giveaway for your kids and demos of new Star Wars toys.
Baby Sale Target generally has a baby sale the first part of September. You can expect to find lots of baby furniture, clothing and accessories on sale. I will be sure to update you as soon as the sale goes live.
Halloween: They halloween items will be showing up in stores very soon, but you probably already knew that.
Here are some of the departments we should see clearance hit 70% off during the month of September :
Dollar Spot Items: Many of the triangle dot dollar spot items consist of teacher and school type items, they will clear these out to make way for the new fall items. Right now my store has them 30% off, we will eventually see them hit 50% off and then 70% off. At 70% off, all of these $1 items will be only $ .30 each.
School Supplies: The school supplies markdown will vary from region (depending on when you started school). Last year our school supplies went down to 70% off on September 14. (We start school the day after labor day). There doesn’t seem to be lots of school supplies left at many stores though. It seem like each year the selection of school supply clearance gets smaller and smaller.
Outdoor Garden, Patio & Grilling: The garden, patio and grilling items that were marked down to 30% off last month, should go to 70% off in September. In fact, I have received reports that several people have found these have been marked down to 70% off today (9/2).
Home Department: Last year, I noticed a good portion of the home department marked down to 70% off towards the middle and end of September. This should markdown should include bedding, frames, decor, window coverings, towels and some children’s bedding too.
Please note these aren’t the only departments that will have 70% off items, these are just the departments that I know have a larger amount of items they are clearing out. You should be able to find 70% off items in every department sometime during the month of September.
