anybody know what determines whether a product is put on clearance or not?
like is it a inventory deal or a timing deal?
I think a number of factors really jump in on this...
Inventory, the time it's been on the sales floor, and the quality of sales it's doing; ie: poor sales = clearance shelf you go!
Because the size of the cases are usually somewhat small, they try to keep it filled with the hot new releases since they are what garner the majority of sales. Those, and the A-listers (ex. Call of Duty games, Halo, etc.). They clearance out the games that aren't A-listers (X-Blades, Ninja Blade) like that to make room for these new releases. Therefore, we get clearance goodness! Ya dig?
