Major Retailers Trend: New Warehouse or Outlet Sections

We've been interested to find that major retailers like Target are bringing in warehouse-type items in sections of their stores. Some news outlets call it an attempt to compete with places like Costco or Sams Club. We'll be interested to see how the prices are. Check your Target store when you go next and let us know what you see! To read more, click through to this article.

I(Mel) have also checked out the new "Outlet Section" at ACMoore. After noticing it on the ACMoore circular a few weekends ago, I wanted to see what it was all about. At my location it appeared that the store discounted seasonal items or items that didn't sell well and centralized the location in the store. It was near the entrance and had big signs. I didn't find anything of note, but I will be sure to check there when I visit the store.

Have you noticed any other stores doing such things? Leave us a comment if so.

I saw this section at Target the other day...I didn't give it much thought at the time because I didn't understand it's purpose. From what I remember though, I wasn't too impressed with the products and/or the prices.
