Sale on Nearly Everything

That's the way it seemed if these Sale posters are indicators. Most of these signs were featured in retail clothing stores.

Discounts ranged from 25 percent up to 70 percent OFF. These sales were seen in store windows several days before Christmas in a Lancaster, PA mall. We were visiting over the holidays to celebrate the birth of our new granddaughter.



All of these sales had us wondering exactly how much more items would have been reduced after the holiday. Alas, we never returned to learn the answer.
Despite all these great pre-Christmas sales, we left without buying anything because window shopping is the best discount — it's totally FREE.

Did you find great shopping bargains, before or after Christmas?

I rarely window shop. When I do shop, it's with a definite object in mind.

There's no shortage of post-Christmas sales here.

I think the "free" would be helpful for me. So many signs!!

I didn't shop in stores much this Holiday....almost all online shopping this year. And since I've not been feeling well since The big day, I've not done any bargain hunting after Christmas yet either. Guess all those 'steals' are going home with other folks ;-).

Bargains seldom attract me. Sometimes, however, something that I want might goes on sale. That is different.

The American consumer has been a source of amusement and wonder for me ever since I came to this country many, many years ago. A store will advertise "4 for only $5" because they get better sales than "$1/each". Your first poster shows "Buy 3 - get 3 FREE". Aside from the "What does that mean? Of course I expect to get three if I pay for them", oh, so I get an additional 3 free?! Is that really a better deal than "But ONE get TWO"? Or, "50% OFF"? Two stores I frequent are most confusing to me. I choose a product to buy on the basis of the price shown and when I get to the counter the price is less. Why don't they mark the price down? It might lead to more sales.

Well, the year is almost gone, hope they all make their sales goals.

I also hope the the bright new year will be happy, prosperous, and healthy for you!
