Are some of you guys seeing that in other parts of the country?
Just speaking for the ones I went to, it seemed like the clearance was about the same size -- it was just items in which I had no interest. Several Targets had 2+ aisles of clearance merchandise. Unfortunately, those 2+ aisles included maybe 2-3 sets of Legos, most of which were unremarkable.
Lego just did not make a big appearance in Target clearance this year. Unlike previous years, going to most Targets showed a toy department that had very few Legos left -- usually only a handful of sets. Most of the sets I did get on clearance were not tagged -- they were ones that I scanned just hopin'.
So, people really bought them this year, at least in my areas. Win for Lego. Lose for finding Lego on decent clearance.
