Captain America: Super Soldier has been $24.98 for well over a month. Is this normal? I've even scanned it every week to no avail.
Here is the scoop on clearance. Target clearance markdown on items that are not seasonal require a markdown team to scan the item to activate the new price. There are reports that the markdowns can be done without a scan, as mentioned by hidden last copy stashes, but I've price checked a girl's coat, and it was at 50%. Went to a mark down member and ask him to scan it to see if it's on his markdown list for today. He did and a new cheaper price tag printed. A minute or so later I was looking for more coats and he asked me if there was another coat I was interested in, so he he could scan it to activate it.
They don't markdown every item each week. For east coast stores they seem to mark down items every 2-3 weeks each notch in the 30,50,75% category. On the west coast it seems to be 3-4 weeks between mark downs. There is the option that they skip a mark down. I've watched items for 5 weeks at 30% then suddenly it's 75% off. I've also seen it 4 weeks later.
advice. do what your doing, watch it and scan it.
