    Before our last WDW trip I was so happy to hit a great big blow-out clearance type sale at my Disney Store.

    We are going again in mid-Sept and I am hoping the store in my area (Central NJ) will have at least one big sale between now and then.

    Is there a standard schedule to these sales or has anyone kept track of the sales and seen a pattern?

    Sinc the stores were sold to the Children's Place last November, don't count on anything being the same as it has been in the past.

    We went last September and I have a October trip planned this year. Last year the DS put all their memorial day stuff into clearance after memorial day. I got so many great deals! We had matching red t-shirts with Mickey Mouse on the front. On the bottom of Mickey was 2004. When we wore these last September, I had people in the park asking me where we had bought them! Also in June they marked down t-shirts to 3.99 and 1.99. I had the kids loaded w/ matching t-shirts! They seem to clear stuff out in June for July stuff which is fall merchandise :earseek: ! But they are owned by Children's Place now so who knows if they will follow suit. We might be able to get good deals online still.

    I am waiting for June now! Lot of clearance I hope!!! :Pinkbounc

    Last year they had an awesome sale to clear out room for the Halloween costumes.

    I bought tons of things for Christmas gifts and stored them away.

    It must have been early September or around then.

    I also live in central NJ. What Disney store do you go to and how is it? I like the one in Quakerbridge Mall but not the one in Menlo Park Mall. Any good suggestions for other malls in the area?

    Thanks,
    Linda

    Well, the Children's Place where I shop (Franklin Mills Mall, PA) is always marking stuff WAY down to make room for the new shipments. So if they keep that pattern with their management of the DS then we can be hopeful. :goodvibes

    Bridgewater, Freehold, and Paramus have the best and largest stores in NJ--they are double and triple sized strores and have the second generation design that looks like a movie set (blue carpet, yellow "scafolding" wall fixtures).

    Actually, I should have said Eastern, Central NJ (as in our house is 6 blocks from the Delaware River). The Disney Store closest to me is in the Cherry Hill Mall. I really only shop the clearance sales.

    As far as the store itself goes, I really can't give an opinion as it seems to be constantly changing. I've heard that this is the case with DS across the board. It's like the store that can't find it's identity......doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up. :rotfl: What I mean by that is, I'll go in and it looks like a Disney souvenier shop: mugs, key chains, etc. Then I visit 6 mo later and it seems like more of a toy store with every character made into a doll or stuffed animal. Then 6 months after that it's like it's a family clothing store....Shirts, sweat suits, PJ's for everyone in the family.

    But that's OK by me bc. every change in identitiy means the stuff from the old "identitiy" goes on clearance. :cheer2:

    Just went this week and got some great stuff at an extra 30% off. I also talked to the "CM" there who said that she has been thrilled with the change over so far from the management and she said to be watching for new and great things to be happening in the near future (tons of sales, outlet stores, etc.). She also said that they have some great summer stuff coming out like cute plates, glasses, for really cheap! Sounds great! I can't wait to see what is out there!

    Mickey Caps and canvas totes were 33% off yesterday. Don't know how long the sale will last though. I bought shirts for 7.99 markdown plus and extra 30% off. I work at Children's Place, so I get an extra 30% off employee discount, but I bought 13 shirts and 1 cap for $60.30 including tax.

    I'm always at the Quakerbridge Mall Disney Store. I'm just waiting for the disney dollars to come back. Last year I got lots of good buys in June and July. Hope they have the same this year.
