I love the violent, over-the-top language that retailers sometimes use to advertise clearance sales, like “fire sale” and “doorbuster” and “blowout.” I imagine shoppers forcing their way into stores with a battering ram to get at the insane deals inside, and retailers so desperate to clear their inventory that they’re firing clothes at shoppers with those T-shirt cannons they use at baseball games.
Anyway, this weekend we’ve got two doorbusters and a blowout, which should be very exciting to everyone. The deal alert level is at orange; we’re at DEALCON 2. Let’s see what we’ve got.
This is a great deal if you’re a really big person or a really small one – “rich wine” (maroon) is only available in XXL and 3XL, and “brt yellow” (yellow) is only in XS, XL, XXL and 3XL. If you’re more medium-sized, I’d recommend the Colorblock fleece jacket for $16.79.
It may seem like $99 is a lot to pay for a sweater (at least one that’s supposed to be on sale) until you consider that it was originally $275. I’m curious what could justify charging $275 for a sweater. Maybe it’s made from angel wings.
