|Save 20% - 80% On Your Clothing Purchases|
By Melissa Tosetti
During last week's Savvy Shopping presentation that I gave in Fresno, I talked about seasonal sales cycles.
We all know that retailers offer sales for each season. But, if you know the sales cycles within the season you can save so much more.
For example, with summer coming up, retailers will usher in the season with an "introductory" sale over Memorial Day Weekend. There will be plenty of inventory and sales will average 15% - 25%.
Over 4th of July, retailers will offer "peak season" sales and summer clothes will be anywhere from 20% - 50% off. There should still be plenty of inventory on the rack, but if you fall in love with something, grab it. It may not be there the following week. That's when retailers start their clearance sales in anticipation of the fall season. Even though it's only the 2nd week of July, you'll see clearance signs in just about every clothing store - well, almost.
During my presentation, one of the attendees asked if stores like TJ Maxx and Marshalls also have seasonal sales cycles. I told her that I didn't know, but I'd find out and send her an email.
When I returned home, I did some research, but struck out. I decided to reach out to an expert in the affordable fashion field and contacted my friend Dianna of The Budget Babe. She was able to answer my question immediately:
Good to hear from you. I hope you're well.
I'm pretty sure Marshalls and TJ Maxx do not follow the typical sales cycle. What they told me in the past is that they get 10,000 new items each week at every store so the merchandise is always changing and the prices are always low. Hope this helps!
Have a great rest of the week.
So if you shop at TJ Maxx and Marshalls, now you know the prices are always low. In addition to that, if you're mindful of traditional retailers seasonal sales cycles and shop accordingly you can regularly save 20% - 80% on your clothing purchases at all of your favorite stores.
Just remember, no matter how good the sale - don't purchase an item unless you have absolutely fallen in love with it.
