liquidation sale ???

Took my wife to the doctor this morning and she wanted to stop a K-Mart on the way home since this is the last week before they close for good. She did get some good deals on clothes [not that she needs any] although it pays to double check the sizes. She picked up one pair of pants that said small but I think I'd need suspenders if I was to wear them The clothes were all at 50% off.

Anyway I went to the tool/automotive dept to see what they had. Most was already gone although I did see some cans of R-134A for $22.99 @ 20% off Just bought one for my wife's car a month ago and paid less than $10 - regular price at a different store. There were other items that also struck me as being high even with the 20-30% off.

Never understand why so many folks will buy something because it's on sale when the regular price somewhere else is the same or lower!

Some of the worst pricing I have seen was at those store liquidation "sales". Truly, buyer beware. Liquidation Sale does not mean the same as "cheaper now than our last advertised sale".

Often the "liquidator" takes over the store. They raise prices and then claim to offer a discount on the inflated prices. Buyer Beware.

I always thought that store was a little overpriced but they've definitely inflated the price on a lot of things. I don't care much for DAP caulk but they had the Alex Plus priced at $5.19 a tube if I remember correctly the last tubes of White Lightning I bought were about half that price.

I assume the shirts my wife bought for $3 each was a good buy .... but she's already got enough clothes to start her own store
