With just 10 days to go until Christmas, Macy’s, Sears, Kmart, Walmart, Belk, and a number of other major retailers are pushing out huge sales this weekend.
“This is the last of the big pre-holiday sales” theorized one shopper we spoke to today. “By next weekend, people will be traveling or last minute shopping and grabbing whatever they can find regardless of the price. This is the last full weekend that stores can capture price conscious shoppers.”
Macy’s was been one of the stores promoting their sale heavily on TV last night. The sale runs 7am to 1pm Saturday, and is called “Macy’s Super Saturday Sale.” The sale includes apparel such as Style & Go sweaters at $19.99 (that’s more than half off their regular prices), 50% off Alfani and Club Room dress shirts and ties for men, Planet Gold, Pink Rose and other junior girls sweaters for $14.99 and all blenders and juicers are 40% off.
Belk is pushing a sale they call their biggest of the year. Their sale includes 60% to 70% off fashion jewelry, 50% off find jewelry, 50% to 60% off boots, 60% off Christmas decorations, and 130 doorbuster specials.
Included in Walmart’s online sale this weekend is a 42 inch Sceptre HDTV for $299 and a 50 inch Sceptre HDTV for $448. Their LeapPad 1 Explorer tablet is $60. A Nintendo 3DS Starter Bundle is $189. An Xbox 360 4GB Kinect Holiday Value Bundle w/Kinect is $250. And a PS3 Gamer Bundle is $279. Their NABI 2 Touchscreen Kid’s Tablet is on sale for $200. Of course, as we mentioned yesterday, Walmart is also having a sale on iPhones and iPads which will continue through Christmas.
Sears is calling their’s the “Holiday Roundup” sale. They have a Super Saturday sale preview page here. A look-thru finds a large number of items listed, from faux Christmas Trees to safes, boots, clothes, lawn tractors, chain saws, tools, HDTVs (Panasonic 42″ Viera Plasma HDTV for $350), tools, grills, furniture… and even tires.
Sears’ sister store, Kmart, is having a “Freak Out” sale online today. Sale items include comforters for $12, microfiber sheet sets for $10, 50% off select outerwear, a Proctor Silex 0.7 cu. ft. Microwave Oven for $40. a Seiki 26′ inch HDTV is $198. Like Sears, they have a huge number of items in their sale. The list is here.
