Any idea what the price of the bikes were? I hadn't seen these but if they're the ones I'm thinking of, I'd wanted one.

I really wanted the bike, but the Neiman-Marcus collection went 70% 1/1, and bikes all gone. All my stores only got 1 or 2..

I gave it and checked out some stores near me. One had nothing, one had some stuff left and another a bit more. Candy, wrapping paper and gift bags is what is primarily left. There are many NM items. Would like to get dd a purse, so still hoping for 90%.

My store had TONS of stuff left Wednesday at about 3pm. Hundreds of bags of candy, a huge selection of stocking stuffers, decorations, lights, gift wrap, huge boxes of bows and ribbons etc. etc. etc. There wasn't a soul in the department either so I decided to wait.

I went back on Thursday and just about everything was GONE!!! Shelf we're empty and being stocked with new stuff. I couldn't believe it. There was NO WAY anyone came in Wednesday night and bought all that stuff.

I have to believe that it was cleared out and donated. The tax write off for Target is probably greater if they donate than sell at 90%. I remember once I asked an employee who was throwing 90% off dollar spot items into a cart what she was going to do with the items and she told me they would be donated.

I'm afraid our 90% Target deals may be gone forever. I hope I'm wrong.

70% at our Target last night, DD13 and I went in to return something and I bought more things. More gift bags, some tissue paper, some Peeps and some really cute party invites with penguins on them. DD's nickname is her name with "the Penguin" added to the end, like Chilly Willy the Penguin, but with her name, her birthday is 12-15 so she's going to use them as invitations to her birthday party next year. They were super cute, wish they had more of them. Our store had a lot of tissue paper and gift bags so I'll probably go back next to see if there is anything at 90% off, if not no big deal, I have a lot of stuff for next year already

The Target in Rockwall, TX had quite a bit left earlier today. I got ornaments, gift bags, and three wreath hangers all 70% off. I was pleased. My ornaments are super cute! They had lots of food, but that was only 50% off. It seems like they would want to get rid of it quicker than the other stuff???

I'm tired of going to check on Target Christmas merchandise. There is a whole aisle plus the candy and other food items. It seems to be multiplying, there are items I've never seen until yesterday. There is a big circle sign hanging above it, stating up to 70% off. These signs are hanging throughout the store. Maybe I'll check other stores this weekend, but not first thing. With these signs, I'm thinking no 90% off this year. They will never sell all the remaining items at 70% off.

3 or 4 years ago, it took a long time for it to go to 90% off. A manager said that they won't be going to 90% off that year but they eventually did, I think it was an extra 7 to 10 days past when it normally goes to 90% off. I think the same thing might happen this year, but by the time it happens there probably won't be anything good left. I miss the holiday clearances from 10 years ago where when it went to 90% off there was still a lot left and you could stock up for next year.

Some stores went 90 yesterday

I think most will go today (fingers crossed). When I was there yesterday I saw a stack of 90% signs in the Christmas section on a table where they were putting out the new display for that section. Also several employees were shopping the Christmas stuff. I bought all my must haves at 50 and 70 off but I'm heading back one last time today just in case. There are a few things that weren't must have that my cheap self would buy at 90% off. Plus I want that $5 Gremlin movie in he new section of stuff and I didn't buy it yesterday.

I'm fairly certain some stores ship their stuff to other stores. One store near me packaged it all up while another keeps getting more. It happens every year. When they are done with the clearance, it's salvaged and sold by the truckload to Goodwill who often charges more than the Target clearance.

I did well at our Target last week. Everything was 70%. I got about 20 various sizes of gift bags, a ton of tissue paper, some ornaments for my son's Christmas tree in his room, icicle lights, light clips, some heavy paper bowl things with Santa and snowmen that will be used to hold crayons at next year's breakfast with Santa, some snowman centerpieces, some candy and some lighted branches that can be used outside or inside. The most expensive item was the branches, at $3.00.
