Title: Daffy's to shut all their locations this fall!
Post by: 123ablack on July 16, 2012, 12:53:03 PM
Saaaaad :(  :-[ :'(

Our beloved designer discounted fashion store Daffy's will be closing down all their 19 locations come this fall... :'(

The only good news out of it: we can expect smashing sales on their current inventory in the next few weeks/months.

Rarely can you actually get a good deal at a going out of business sale...often the deals are worse :P

Right but after all they're sitting with some stock of real designer clothes and accessories which they'll have to get rid of in a very short period of time so might find some good specials.

Either way, it's a very weak נחמה... :'(
My wife and kid's wardrobe contains of 90% daffy's, 5% TjMaxx and 5% Century 21..

Wife and i are just soooook saaaad now.....

That is incorrect. They sell the inventory to liquidation companies, who are experts at turning profits on these things.

As Dan said before, you very rarely get good deals at a "going out of business" sale.

Have you shopped at daffy's before? Everything is already very cheap add an extra 25% to everything that is already usually on sale and you have some really good deals.

I'll still stand by my hope/prediction that we'll get some better prices on what's left..

Another one bites the dust :'(

Here's my take on this:

As inventory depletes the discount offered goes up, so you gotta find that sweet-spot where there's still normal stuff left on the racks but the discounts are good. I've had better experiences, and not such good ones. Borders was lousy, and circuit city was even lousier.

I'll be happy to find another pair of Ferragamos for $50 (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=11026.msg160583#msg160583)...

1. Something tells me that won't fly.
2. At liquidation, stock is often limited.

If there are one pair of $50 Ferragamo shoes and it's my turn, you wouldn't be upset you missed out?

We each get one shoe or we do rock paper or flip a coin

So, is the sale on yet? Anything worth getting excited about?

Didn't see any big sale movement. All I saw are big signs that say something to the effect of:

Sales after Jul 23rd are final.

FYI, I walked by Daffy's at Atlantic Mall, and they had signs at the entrance saying "20-40% off", but I was in a rush so I didn't go in.

Anyone been to Daffy's recently? Any good bargains to be had?

Yes.

There's not much left in the stores (unless you want to buy store furniture - it's all on sale), but I picked up 2 sweaters for a decent price.

For the heck of it, what did the sweaters cost?
Wool? Cotton?
