Most stores follow something called the 3-3-2 rule. This applies to every Holiday except for Christmas. This is important to know when you are trying to get post holiday deals. Here is how it works:
Year-round this is how Clearance works. However, it may vary from store to store.
Monday: Infants department, Kids clothing and Electronics (maybe food also)
Tuesday: Women’s clothing, Domestics
Wednesday: Men’s clothing, Garden, Toys, Health and Beauty
Thursday: Lingerie, Shoes, Housewares, Sporting Goods, Luggage
Friday: Cosmetics, Hardware, Auto, Home Improvement and Jewelry
The first 3 days after the holiday are 50% off.
The next 3 days are 75% off.
The next 2 days are 90%.
After that it’s gone.
4th of July 3-3-2 (The dates always stay the same since the Holiday is always on July 4th)
July 5 = 50% off
July 8 = 75% off
July 10 = 90% off
Halloween (The dates always stay the same since the Holiday is always on October 31st)
Nov 1st = 50% off
Nov 4th = 75% off
Nov 7th = 90% off
This should help you out when trying to get the best deals on Clearance items!
