With the school year starting it’s not surprising to see a lot of stores target teachers and students as they need to purchase supplies for the new school year. While the items are more geared towards this demographic, a lot of the items can be used for other purposes such as getting binders for office use. But what got me thinking was how someone was looking for office supplies and mentioned how he will wait for a sale geared towards that. I was thinking, why not look at the sale now as it may have exactly what you are looking for?
That made me wonder how many people actually neglect to take advantage of sale solely because of the sales theme. For example, even if you are not celebrating something like Valentines Day that usually means there could be chocolate on sale if that was what you were looking for. Many times too companies have sales each week where they struggle to find some kind of name for it. Holiday sales are a great example where while there may be more items that are generally in demand during those occasions to help draw in the crowd it’s still a good opportunity to find other items you need.
It’s different if it was a very specific item sale such as dropping the prices of various suits. Like there that would be a waste of time if you don’t need one. But if they say business wear sale then it could be a good time to look even if you were just looking for clothes in the future for school graduations an example.
