Found one experience:
"Just got back from CC. Not really anything special. 10% off TVs etc and the prices they start with were retail so it works out to be the same as recent sales mostly. Any sale items from this weeks flyer still rang up as those prices."
I figured there wouldn't be much going on up there. I know when LNT started liquidating, it was pretty disappointing considering how high their prices were to begin with. We have a birthday party to go to in the same shopping center at CC in Cary at 2 pm, so we figured we'd leave and go take a look at CC. I'm not expecting much though.
It's the same old liquidation scam. They say everything is 40% off but it is off MSRP so the end price is about the same or a little better than what the normal store price is. You won't see rock bottom prices until the very end, but by then all the decent stuff will be gone.
I went to CC today- after news of the liquidation- i was curious to see if they had any good blu ray players on sale. Saw just what I expected- regular priced stuff you could buy cheaper somewhere else - even after the discount. Well - maybe i'll go back in 2 weeks.
Here's a clip about liquidation sales: YouTube - Going-Out-of-Business Sales Not Such a Bargain
Yes, fools don't understand a progressive markdown sale.
They run out with stuff at 10% off giving up return privilege. Can't wait for true bargains.
They also don't understand that mfr warrantees do not cover physical damage - only mechanical issues. You should never purchase without inspecting the item for things like cracked LCD screen, etc. This cannot be fixed, and mfr won't help you.
Wait till mid February for real bargains, if any.
My uncle used to auction off liquidated stores and there are good deals, but be a sharp shopper or you may very well get fleeced.
