    I don't know if this is news or not, but my Target had the G1 repaints of movie Jazz and movie Starscream on clearance for 1/2 off today. And the weird thing is, they never actually made it to the shelves. I've been checking for a Jazz for my daughter for weeks, I finally find them today, and they're in the clearance section!

    In the Chicagoland area, I'm sure all over too, all Transformers are on sale 10% off until today. Now I've seen 6" tits on clearance for $10 or $11, which probably means that this is the end of the titanium line.

    In the world of retail we have clearance sales to clear out old non-selling items to make room for more product. And this store determined not by coporate. Target as whole is not having a TF clearance but your Target location is see what I mean?

    I went to a local Target today, and the exclusives were still at regular price.

    Deluxes were "advertised" for a price of $9.94! Five cents off?? Don't have a clue about that one...

    Wrong. Target's clearance is determined by corporate. Things like endcap exclusive items are clearanced nationwide to make room for more endcap product, which switches out every 1 to 2 months.

    Some stores might clearance things at different times (15% off at one store while another is %30 off) but even those are determined by corporate. Target stores don't have any autonomy when it comes to clerancing merchandise.

    yes, but nonetheless, stores can and will still have seperate clearance sales cause something maybe selling well at one store but not at the other location. For example, I work at TRU and when we were carrying 20th AE Optimus it was retail lfor what like $80 I believe. I went to closests TRU some months later and they had it on clearance for $40, did ours ever drop in price? No, it didn't.

    Yes other companies allow individual stores to clearance things out separate from other stores in the company, but Target doesn't allow that with their stores. A reduced price doesn't take effect at a Target store unless corporate sends that price to the stores to be activated.
