When does Walmart go to 75% off on Easter stuff?

I was at our local Walmart yesterday and all the Easter merchandise is 50% off and they have a ton left. Does anyone know how many days after Easter it will be before it goes to 75%?

I thought Target went a couple days after they were 50% off - Walmart holds out longer, huh.

I just got home from my store. Everything was 50% off and they were moving it out of the "Easter" isle to the front of the store. One of the employees said that he thought it was going to 75% off tomorrow.

Oh good. I have to go down that way tomorrow anyway, so I'll check our Walmart out and see what's what. I hope they have some dark chocolate bunnies left - I want to freeze them for cookies.

Walmart clearance levels depend on the individual store and inventory levels. If you live near a Walmart that is horrible on clearance, it will take longer than other Walmarts to lower prices. As an example, around the 2nd week of November some posters said their local Walmarts were 90% off on Halloween items, my local Walmart was still at 50% off. Same with Valentine's Day merchandise, it didn't go to 90% until early March near me and by then basically nothing was left. I think it is because that store is very busy so they figure they don't need to lower prices fast, even after midnight there are usually over 100 cars in the lot.

It's usually 50% off the day after and approx 4 days before it gets to 75% off, depending on what day the holiday was. By the next weekend its almost always 75% off because thats when they do the most business.

Our Walmart is terrible about clearance items. Most of the clernace section has been there since Christmas. As their clearnace prices are terrible.

I might have to look into the Little People as we can never have enough of these

I was at our WM before lunch on Tuesday and scored a great deal!

Speckled M&Ms, peanut butter. Originally 2.68 (9.9 oz), 50% 1.34. I had coupons I had picked up week before on the shelf in the candy aisle for $1.00/2 larger bags of M&Ms. So each bag was only .84! I grabbed 4 bags-our family really loves these.

At that time my store still had quite a lot of candy. Not much else though. I didn't see any toys at all. My DSis and I went back at about 4 p.m. the same day (she wanted to get some pb M&M) but sadly there were all gone. There were still a few Peeps left, bunch of jelly beans, tons of Reese's PB eggs. I haven't been there since Tuesday but I'm sure there isn't much left. There were 2 aisles on Tuesday but the whole time I was in the aisle, there were workers keeping everything straight and moving things around. Shrinking the shelf space.

Our Walmart has all the Easter stuff down to 25 cents each (started a few days ago). We only bought 2 new baskets and a pack of the gold and silver eggs to put away. They also had a cart full of different packs of silly bands for 25 cents each so I bought a bunch of those to put away for party favors.

I didn't even think to look for any Little People or Matchbox (didn't seen in the Easter stuff that was all placed up front) so I might have to go back and look through the toy section.
