Bargain Hunting For Below Retail Prices

Mar 28, 2008
If shoppers wanted to go bargain hunting for automobiles with prices that are below retail, they would probably check an automobile guide to get a suggested retail price for the car and then take some time to compare that price against many automobiles on a car dealership lot. The below retail prices might even be further enhanced by rebates and discounts that come directly from the car manufacturer.

When bargain hunting for prices below retail in a grocery store, the shopper might feel that the clearance aisles in the store will be a good place to start. The prices for grocery store items might be priced lower because they came from another store in the chain that closed and the savings are passed on to the customer in this manner. Bargain hunting through clearance aisles can bring smiles to the faces of shoppers at times because the prices are well below the retail price they expected to find.

Some retail prices are lowered in stores when the store is overstocked with merchandise. This usually occurs after a seasonal holiday has passed and the retailer has merchandise that did not completely sell out. These items would normally be sent to the clearance aisles after a time but right after the holidays the bargain hunter can find below retail prices assigned that are very remarkable.

There are stores that have below retail prices assigned to every item in the store. These stores are a bargain hunters dream because the below retail prices get lower and lower as time goes by. Some days a bargain hunter might see an item for half priced and if they are lucky and patient they might see that same bargain priced even lower if enough time passes and the item is still available.

Some stores use clever marketing techniques to attract customers. They will allow people to join shopping clubs for a yearly membership fee. These shopping clubs are places where merchandise is marked below retail right from the start. These below retail prices are possible because the purchasing power of millions has given the retailer enough incentive to purchase large quantities of items that lower prices because they know there are members that will come in and buy them.

There are some retailers that might not lower the prices on all products in the store to below retail but are willing to give customers certain incentives to buy products and reap discounts too. Some grocery stores think that bargain hunters should be rewarded and will offer these shoppers the incentive of paying full price for one item and getting another item for free. Shoppers will usually go into a frenzy when this occurs and restock their freezers with lots of good meat at prices that no other retailer can beat.
