A reminder to all that many stores (at least in Washington) are having their garage sale today (Saturday).
Also, the Seattle flagship store garage sale has progressive markdowns as time goes on. Last quarter, they were at an additional 50% off by around 2pm, and even deeper cuts as evening rolls around. At some point, all shoes became $10, regardless of how high the original/starting price was.
Alderwood does not do this as far as I know. It all depends on the store and how much they need to clear out.
