Old Navy...Add'tl 50% off Clearance

It's that time again...transitioning between fall and holiday season means a clearout sale at Old Navy...50%off last ticketed Clearance Items (red tag).

I was able to grab some fun Star Wars PJs for my little guy for $6.49! And a couple of cute jersey skirts for me at $4.49 each!! I was on limited time this morning, but I just may have to go back to see what else I can find!

Hurry though...the sale ends tomorrow (Saturday Oct 27).

Sports Mart - Closing Out Sale - Part deux

After my twin called me to tell me about her finds (see here) at the local Sports Mart, I decided to head there myself to see if they had any kids' boarder winter jackets. To my surprise, yes they did! If you are needing some high-end, great quality winter jackets for your kids, now is a great time to make a visit to your local Sports Mart for their best selection. I saw many brands on clearance including Columbia, SIMS, FireFly, Powder Room, and Etirel.

The store I chose to visit happened to be hosting an additional 40%off the last ticketed price (Central City, Surrey BC) so it seems as if the close-out sale discounts will vary from store to store.

Check out my finds below:

This is for my 8 year old daughter. It's a SIMS boarder style coat with tons of features including pit zips, fully taped seams, thumbed sweater cuffs, adjustable and removable hood and magnetized zipper garage (no velcro, yay!).

This SIMS boarder style coat is for my 6 year old son. Same features, with the exception of the magnetized main zipper garage. This zipper is fully exposed, but has fully taped seams.

The regular price of each of these jackets was $149.99, marked down to $69.88 and then an additional 40%off each one. Each one ended up being less than $42 pre-tax. A terrific price for a high-quality winter jacket.

Go soon for best selection. The stores will be closing for good at the end of this year.

Sport Mart Closing...Deals to be Found!

A friend of mine told me the other day that she walked into Sport Mart Langley to find the entire store was an additional 30%off the last ticketed price. So off I went!

Here's what I found out. Canadian Tire acquired Sport Mart earlier this year. Since its acquisition, they've resigned to shut down more than 100 stores Canadawide. This includes all of the Sport Mart locations...thus the 30%off all merchandise. The Sport Mart in Langley is due to be closed by Jan 1, 2013. I anticipate that discounts will get larger in the coming weeks. If you're looking for something specific though, maybe it's worth checking out while the selection is still great. There is a ton of inventory!

Are there good deals? On some things, yes. There are some sporting goods that rarely go on sale, such as UA (Under Armour) and NHL jerseys. Men's Canucks jerseys are $94 with the current discount. Kids UA pants are $28 with the current discount. There are some good deals on runners, such as New Balance and Nike for under $50.

What did I buy? I ended up buying some accessories for hockey (blade guards, neck guard) for around $9. I also bought myself a fabulous snowboard jacket for $45 (retail was $130, marked down to $64.88)...but the BEST deal was on a youth Reebok 2 piece track suit...reg.$ was marked down to $9.99, which means I paid $4.15 for the suit. That's less than a mocha at Starbucks.

I am sure I'll be in again to see what else I can snatch :)
