Furniture stores “going out of business” sales…

One of my biggest pet peeves is stores that advertise “going out of business” or “retiring” or whatever excuse they use – then mark everything up just to mark it down!! I”m sure you have seen or been to these sales. Sadly, many items end up costing more with the “mark-downs” then they were before the “sale”. How many people get drawn in by this type of sale and THINK they are getting a deal?!

Note that it says “up to 68%”. Evidently, that one item already sold.

This is one of my biggest pet peeves. Just saying… :-(
