Target and Wal-Mart Toy Sales

Target and Wal-Mart Start to Slash Prices on Toys

Shoppers, listen up! The pumpkins are barely ripe for carving and already the mega stores are having price slashing wars. Target and Wal-Mart have made the 2009 holiday toy budget a tad more realistic as they have marked loads of games and dolls down to half-price. Parents who like to keep their local mom and pop businesses afloat may be reconsidering that approach this holiday season when they see Barbies and G.I. Joes at dirt cheap prices. Will the state of the economy affect where you are shopping this holiday season?

Yeah, the article says some toys are marked as low as 50% off. That probably means one toy, which nobody ever buys.

I was at Target today and I did not see any 1/2 price toys. I call BS. Well, maybe some of them will mark toys down but most won't. I doubt I'll find nice toys at 1/2 price.

i wonder how online retailers like Amazon will compete. i think they can keep up which might keep people like meandtheo from having to drive all over town!

i will buy toys at the jumbo stores (even though i have to drive 20 minutes to get to the closest one) this year if they are really half off. i find toys to be incredibly overpriced to begin with so half off would be a good deal.
