TRU clearance?

I've been reading the Target thread, and I've seen for myself K-Mart's clearance prices (boosters for $4.50!)--any word on when TRU will start up with the clearance prices?

Re: TRU clearance?

It's started already on the website - SotM is at $29.98 (and the 8 digit indicates clearance at TrU). I haven't checked the stores yet but they can't be far behind.

Re: TRU clearance?

I asked because my local store still has SOTM for $42.99. I keep hoping that TRU will slash 'scape prices the way that Target and K-Mart have now that they're getting rid of it.

Re: TRU clearance?

I posted this in the Target thread, but it may be worth mentioning again. I went to the TRU in Independence MO today and was only able to find 1 booster (sitting in a completely random area) and it was full price. I hunted hard looking for items that might have been moved to clearance areas. I even involved a worker who said she was surprised I found any HS stuff as she hadn't seen any in a long time.

I'll check other TRUs and Kmarts in my area over the weekend and report what I find.

Re: TRU clearance?

I work at a Babies R Us and can state that all scape is "X" status - Discountinued. However at this time, SoTM, Waves, VW, and Flagbearers (yes there are some out there still) are at full price, all other scape is x.98 clearance priced.

Also, anything that is at clearance priced is additionally 20% off for a limited time.

Re: TRU clearance?

I know we should be happy about clearance, but I can't help but fear for HS. If all of these stores are discontinuing Scape, how will it live?

I don't want to lose HS.

Re: TRU clearance?

There is a TRU near me that is sitting on over 15 SotM, plus the CS rep said they have another case "in back" whatever that means. All of them are marked and ring up at the normal $42.99 price. I asked if they'd go on clearance soon and she just said "They're discontinued, so probably, but I can't say when."

So, I've taken to calling up there about once a week to ask someone to scan the price to check. I'd drive out myself, but...you know....gas prices and whatnot.

Re: TRU clearance?

They have Marvel marked down to 19.98 right now, with an additional 20% off taken at the register. The clearance sale on Marvel expires 8/16/08.

My guess is that they will mark it down further at that time, and, I'm hoping, SotM will go on clearance in the stores at that time also. I have been checking my TRU every couple of days since I work across the street.

The dummy working there told me that they were clearing out the HS because: "They are coming out with a new Master Set that is more brightly colored to be less scary to children, and it is coming out soon." He implied that TRU would continue to carry HS and they were just waiting for new product.

This is the first I had heard of any of this and I suspect it is all false. What WotC has told us on the board directly contradicts everything he said.

I will check both Sat 8-16 and Sun 8-17 and post here whatever I find. I think their clearances are nationwide.

Who to trust, who to trust.... The WotC representative or the guy known as "the dummy".

Re: TRU clearance?

The TRU in Florence KY had one lonely Jandar flagbearer...HAD one. Now I have one! =D

The problem was that it was in the clearance 'games' section with Big Trouble and Trivial Pursuit DVD for Kids....but it was marked at regular price and rang at regular price. I would've complained but I figured with the luck of even finding it 12.99 was a small price.

I was famous, once...

Re: TRU clearance?

Thanks for all the info! It's good to know that it's not just my local store that's dried up and NOT marked down the few remaining discontinued bits they have.

And if anyone hears of a nation-wide TRU clearance on 'scape, definitely post it here!
