SALE vs. CLEARANCE



a SALE is a temporary markdown that the store can raise to it’s full price at anytime;; usually for promotional purposes
CLEARANCE is a permanent markdown that won’t be raised back to it’s full price;; the word "clearance" says it all - the store is trying to clear out their old, seasonal inventory in preparation for the new items



....so always remember this :
{{ SALES ARE THE DEALS, BUT CLEARANCES ARE THE STEALS }}

also, something I've noticed is..most stores use the red stickers to symbolize the item is "on sale" and the yellow sticker to represent "clearance".
