For many bargain shoppers, the half-price mark is when a close-out sale gets really good! Long rumored for years, Pier 1 Imports is finally closing its doors for good. The home décor retailer has begun its going-out-of-business sale, which is expected to run through sometime in September. The shelves are full of merchandise now, so it’s the perfect time to shop for the best selection. However, bargain hunters know to play the waiting game for bigger savings.
As with most close-out sales, the discounts get bigger as the final business day approaches.
As of now, most everything is up to 50% off – with discounts varying by department. There were also some bonus discounts of an additional 10% off with the purchase of more than one item from select categories. The current discounts are posted in-store, so look for the signage before going on a shopping spree.
Many diehard cheapskates don’t consider close-out sales of any value until they hit 50% off or more. You may want to wait until August for bigger savings, though the selection may not be quite as good.
If the locations are inconvenient (or you prefer to avoid any crowds), the close-out sale is also available online. Just be prepared to pay extra for shipping. Plus, all sales are final.
