We have customers that will come in to the store and go straight to the sale rack, and others that will do their best to avoid it. One time I had a customer ask where we get our sale product from, I wasn’t sure what they meant and inquired further. She explained that she once worked at a department store that would order lesser quality items and put them on sale, but still make a great margin. Nope-Not us! Our customers that shop our store’s sale area… they know. And now, we wanted you to know too:)
So how do our sale items work? At The Happy Sol we believe in selling a high quality item at a fair price. When those items arrive in our store they are quickly turned and put on the sales floor. It is important to us to keep the sales floor fresh with new items and deliveries, in order to do that, we also have to move things quickly. When an item arrives in our store it already has a set time frame that it will be “new”, after that brief time frame it has it’s first mark down and becomes a sale item. Some of the items were never seen on the rack, others may have been unseasonable at their time, but they still get the mark down.
So you see, our “Sol” Sale items are not items over priced – they are not purchased at a lesser quality- they are not even “duds”– they just didn’t get seen in their “time frame” and we hope they are noticed in the sale area! At The Happy SOl we also have a few seasons and opportunities when we mark down additional items. An example of this would be at the turn of a season before we stock up for what is to come. January is a great month for sale, as we are gearing up for resort wear and Spring merchandise!
This January is an exception to most, as we have A LOT of items marked down to help us make room for a new project! If you stop by the store in the next few days you will see a huge selection of women’s, men’s, home decor, gift & jewelry marked down 40% or more! We are ready to start our New Year fresh, even if that means extended some big savings to help clear out the floor for a new look!
Swing in now to shop a great selection of high quality, fashionable sale items!
