When do you get the best sales?

I was wondering if you get better deals when all the snow is gone? Or are 40-50% off as good as it gets? Also do you guys know what the stores do with the equipment that they dont sell from clothing to boards? Thanks

Your going to find alot of good deals right now. Stores need to unload thier inventories. You may wait and hold off and find that some of the deals are even better over the summer, since it is out of season and in the fall companies release thier '10 lines. But with that being said the longer you wait, the more slim the pickings. Stores have very limited selection of inventory. They may have what you are looking for but not in the right sizes. All about paying what you think is a fair price and if you think you can afford to hold out.

anything they don't sell usualy ends up at warehouse sales. There was an Option warehouse sale in my city at the start of the season. 08 Franchises ran for $150. Compared to online stores, not a big deal, but compared to retail, that's a big discount. They figure they can sell em to the ppl who have never heard of online shopping.

warehouse sales are where it's at

i find the retail stores around here LOVE to markup (regardless of the dollar), making 50% off sales more like 30% off

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

wherever there's a warehouse, there will be a sale associated with it at some point?

Usually at the start of the season, usually at a warehouse. If there are no warehouses near you, you're out of luck.
