Annual Sales & Bargains 2005
A playbook for the shopper who wants the best and to never pay full price. Nevah!
Annual Sales & Bargains
A Playbook for Very Smart Shoppers
Smart shoppers insist on the best, and they never pay full price. Nevah! To that end, the editors of D Home surveyed hundreds of Dallas stores to create a listing of their major sales. The requirements were simple: The sales had to be planned for specific dates, the store had to be open to the public (at least during the sale), and the store managers had to call us back. (Calling editors back, very important.) The result: an invaluable listing of a year’s worth of local sales. Now all you need is a calendar, a highlighter, and some self-control.
