Dollar General HUGE Sale – 90% Off Clearance
It’s here! Dollar General only has their big Clearance Sale twice a year! Sure, they have sales all the time, but this one is epic! You do NOT want to miss it!
We’ve just received word that Dollar General is starting their Clearance Sale now! If you love Dollar General’s Penny Items, then you’ll really love the Clearance Sale! They only happen a few times a year. And, when they do, prices are super low!!
Unlike Penny Items, which are obviously cheaper at only one cent, the Clearance Sale is up to 90% off items. Of course, the big difference is that penny items are super hard to find. However, all stores will slash prices during Clearance Sales.
While some call the Penny Items a clearance sale, purists know that Penny Items technically aren’t on “clearance”. At least, that’s not what Dollar General calls them.
Why do some product prices reduce to a Penny?
Penny Items at Dollar General have either been hard to sell, are discontinued products or after Holiday close outs.
Maybe in some areas a certain product doesn’t sell. DG will mark them down in steps, all the way down to 90% off clearance.Then, if there’s any left, they discount them to a penny.
Often, manufacturers will stop making a certain product. Maybe it’s Tide and they want to change the scent. Or, maybe they change the size of the product. Either way, they’ll discontinue the old version. And as a result, they’ll close them out all the way down to the 1¢ sale.
Of course, Holiday close-outs are popular in most stores. For example, after Valentine’s Day, stores close out chocolates and candy, and other holiday-themed items at a step-down sale discount. In other words, they’ll start at maybe 50% off, and after a set amount of time they’ll increase the discount to 75% off and so on. It’s at the end of those mark-downs that the penny items happen!
The reason Dollar General discounts all the way to a penny is to alert sales associates that it’s time to pull the merchandise from store shelves, to be donated to places such as Goodwill, or to be destroyed.
