When Do Clothes Go on Sale?

Everyone wants to know when groceries go on sale. What about clothes?

There seems to be a sale every week or month.

When are the end of season clearance sales?

When are the big sales from major department stores?

I once read a magazine article detailing this many years ago.

It was so helpful to have on hand, that’s why I put this list together using Bankrate and my own research.

    Incredible tips! I didn’t know the greatest days of the week to purchase things online or that Thursday night is the best time to purchase garments. I likewise didn’t know the greatest months to purchase suits, tennis shoes and pants.
