Most going out of business sales are not bargains! They are run by professional liquidators who raise the store’s prices up before they mark them down. That means you’re often paying as much or more as when the store was still in business. I did an undercover investigation for Good Morning America and store clerks confirmed, on hidden camera, that the liquidators made them put new higher price tags over the old price tags. Liquidators even bring in outside merchandise that the chain never sold, to take advantage of the hype. So never assume a price is a steal just because it’s at a going out of business sale.
Instead, shop and compare, as always.
