Featured Brag: Patty Closes Down Zellers

Canadian Deals & Coupons, Featured Brag

100_3842 Large Web view

As we say a fond (or not that fond) farewell to Zellers, many SmartCanucks members have been taking advantage of the great store closing deals.

When mine closed there were people fighting over a sweater, items everywhere, people grabbing random stuff, open boxes, stuff missing from packaging etc but if you were willing to take the time and duck when needed, there were some great deals.

Patty Smyth got everything pictured above for just $192.10, a savings of over $900 off the original prices.  The Kitchenaid cookware was just $45!  It usually pays to find out when stores are closing and visit – and to listen to staff for deals.  As Patty found out from an announcement, items were a further 50% of the clearance price but it was not advertised in store, she may not have bought some of the items without the extra 50% off.

    The problem with Zellers in my area is that they advertised 50% off, but they raised the price tags 40-50% so there is not much of a deal on anything. They are closing for good on March 14th (or so they say..) so I might go take a look this week if there are any real deals.

    As a Zellers employee…I am going to tell you that WE DID NOT RAISE THE PRICES ON ANYTHING PRIOR TO LIQUIDATION!!!….we hardly had time to do our regular work at Christmas time to go around changing prices. ( might as well save my breath because no one believes) Sale prices that have been on in the months previous simply went back to regular price, this could cause some confusion. There is some excellent deals happening in the remaining stores, but just because it is liquidation, please do not feel that you have the right to open packages, throw stuff and complete destroy the store. Some one might wish to buy that item and it’s not nice if you wrecked it.

    I went to my local Zellers this weekend, and they had even brought out some high-end items (Lord & Taylor, e.g.) that had perhaps come from The Bay, as it’s not typical Zellers fare. I bought some Lord & Taylor cordoroy pants and a high-end brand cordoroy skirt, and saved $150 off the regular retail price!!

    Also, I have to say that I’m feeling rather nostalgic about Zellers closing :( I tried to find a Zeddy Bear to buy for the memories, but they were all gone. Best wishes to all Zellers staff (including you, Karen!) as the stores close!
