For YEARS I’ve been shopping at a nice upscale Department store, “Belks”. I think they are local to the south east though. They always have their “end of the season sales” long before the season is over, and they have most of the items 60% off PLUS several “Take an additional 30% off all clearance items”! The last time I went, I got a hand embroidered white shell, a pair of jeans, a pair of dress slacks, 3 pr. of shorts and 2 sport tops all for $48.00, and they were ALL good brand names like Liz, Halston, etc.
I would NEVER pay full prioce for ANYTHING there, but only going there during a big sale, I can get good clothes and spend far less than even buying at Walmart!
