"How can money be the root of all evil, when shopping is the cure for all sadness..." Elizabeth Taylor
Clearance merchandise consists of products that have been permanently marked down for quick sale. These items may be handled in several ways:
- Clearance items may be pulled together at the rear of each department. For example, clearance suits may be positioned on one or more fixtures at the rear of the career department.
- Clearance merchandise from all departments may be pulled into one area of the store to form a permanent clearance department. This catch-all clearance department should be positioned in the rear of the store.
- Clearance merchandise in specialty stores may be pulled to the front of the store for traditional major clearance events in January or early July.
