My local Winn Dixie will be closing in about a month and I was told today that I can expect general merchandise to go on clearance in about a week. I asked if they would still be accepting coupons and they said yes. I am trying to get my coupons ready in time for the sale. I know the HBA and all of the miscellaneous stuff (toys, batteries, school supplies, straw hats, etc) are considered GM. What about other non-grocery items like cleaning supplies, laundry soap, paper and plasitc products, foil, etc. I was told the non perishable grocery items will go to the new store taking its place (IGA). The woman telling me about it was busy and I didn't want to delay her by asking too many questions.

i would say just wait for the sale and then go in and check it out asap....i think its up to them what they put on sale or not

Depending in who is doing the clearancing, you may find the deals are not all that good. Oftentimes liquidation companies will be brought in to handle getting rid of the merchandise. They will often bring in merchandise never sold at that store, mark prices as they please (including higher than pre-liquidation). The store will be operating under the old name, but will be operated by another company.

Then again, perhaps the deals will be awesome, and you'll clean up. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0>
