Major Creeper Alert.
I love it when I go shopping and find that my favorite store is having a huge sale. These shoes give my outfit the perfect pop it needs, and you won't believe me when I tell you how much I got them for. However, it took me years before I realized that the feeling of snagging a huge score while shopping didn’t have to be completely random. In fact, you can track a store’s sale cycle so you always get the best price for whatever clothing and accessories you want.
So, I know you're dying to know where I got these chic creeps. Well, I got these Tuxedo inspired creepers from FOREVER21 MEN, for a whopping $14.99, and here's how!
Here are 3 quick tips, to catch your favorite store in the middle of a huge sale:
Shop End of Season
One of the best times to get the most bang for your buck is to shop around the end of a season. Keep in mind that retail stores are a couple of months “ahead of the weather,” so you could still pick up a cheap sweater and get a month’s worth of wear before it’s time to bring out your spring wardrobe.
Wait Six to Eight Weeks
The typical retail store lets a new item hang out on the shelves for six to eight weeks before it’s marked down. Merchandise in retail stores is ever-changing, so shop owners can’t afford to have old items languishing on the racks and taking up space. Furthermore, after six to eight weeks of buying, there might only be a few of a specific item remaining – hardly enough to take up room on a display. Therefore, it’s moved to the sale or clearance section, usually at the very back of the store. There, it can be lumped with other sale items to be snapped up by savvy shoppers.
Thursdays Are Best
If you want first dibs on a pair of shoes you’ve been eyeing, your best bet is to try shopping on a Thursday. Stores know that most people come to the mall or the shop on the weekend, so they begin preparations on Thursday to mark down old merchandise and rotate new merchandise into the store. By shopping on a Thursday, you can have the best selection paired with the best prices to snag the item that you desire.
