Set 79111 On Clearance at Target?? Whaaat?!

Postby CloneDoc » Sat Jul 27, 2013 7:33 pm

Found the Lone Ranger Constitution Train Chase 79111 marked with a Clearance sticker for $64.98. on the Shelves today. I guess the movie must really be doing bad for them to put it on clearance before it even leaves the theater! :lol:
Plus its marked down to $84.99 on their website, too. D'oh :shock:

Typically when a relatively new set goes on clearance like this, it's for one of two reasons. Either a) It's not on the planner for the next season or b) it's a mistake. Stores have a limited amount of space, and they may not carry everything at each store (Walmart does this based on store size).

But occasionally, something slips through the system. Which is how I picked up 79007 The Black Gate on clearance today for $41.98.

Yup. I picked up Council of Elrond for $21 this weekend. Target is screwy sometimes.

Mostly it's that Target's distribution centers outrun its merchandising arm a lot, and product shows up before it has a place on the shelf. They have some kind of automatic system that marks down items that aren't placed on a shelf, and sometimes it screws up.

I wish I would have found the Council sets marked down. I need several more of those for those delicious new mini arches.

The shelves were pretty bare of the other stuff, but I guess you never know what's going to be marked down. I wish any of the LOTR sets were marked down, I would have gotten a few of those as well.
