Daffy's to shut all their locations this fall!
« 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
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

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.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

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...
