After Christmas bargain shopping

December 26 is known for having many after-Christmas sales. With the economy the way it has been acting, some of the country’s biggest retailers will offer bargain hunters unprecedented deals.

Retailers such as Circuit City, which is presently bankrupt, and Home Depot are among the stores where some of the best bargains can be found.

Other stores where some of the best bargains may be found are:

Target - some women’s clothes, mainly by designer Jonathan Saunders will be reduced by - not a misprint - 90 percent. This is due to a new designer, Thakoon Panichgul’s GO International collection which will hit Target’s shelves on December 28. Other markdowns include appliances, Nintendo games, and 50 percent off of certain toys.

Sears - along with certain home appliances, there will be discounts on fine jewelry and certain models of treadmills (possibly to help work off some of that holiday flab).

Circuit City - this bankrupt electronics store bought too much inventory for fall 2008 and now needs to liquidate that overabundance. For post-Christmas shoppers, the company’s downfall means unbeatable discounts starting December 26 at stores which are still open as well as online. There should be substantial markdowns on laptops, flat-screen televisions and digital cameras.

So the shopping isn’t over yet for bargain hunters and those wishing to return gifts. For the anti-shopper crowd, this means only another couple weeks of lines at the register.
