Top After-Season Sales

By Forbes.com

This holiday season has been ripe with sales, but the biggest of all will come Dec. 26. Starting the day after Christmas, 10 of the country's biggest retailers will offer bargain hunters unprecedented deals, from inventory liquidation at Circuit City to 80 percent off designer duds at high-end stores such as at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Macy's

Nationwide and Online
Dec. 26 to mid-January

The largest department-store chain in the country will offer shoppers clearance prices on fall items such as diamond earrings, bedding and appliances. Discounts will reach 75 percent off.


Wal-Mart

Nationwide and Online
Dec. 26, until supplies last

Despite the fact that it's doing better than others — December sales are expected to increase by 3 percent in North America — this big-box still needs to rid itself of much 2008 inventory. Shoppers will see reductions of up to 80 percent off certain jewelry, appliances and toys, as well as Christmas decorations.

Target

Nationwide and Online
Dec. 26, until supplies last

Women's clothing designer Thakoon Panichgul's GO International collection for Target hits stores Dec. 28, which means you'll find previous GO designer Jonathan Saunder's collection reduced by up to 90 percent. Other discounts include markdowns on appliances, Nintendo DS games ($25 each) and 50 percent off certain toys.

Sears

Nationwide and Online
Dec. 26 to Jan. 3

Along with home appliances, shoppers will see discounts on fine jewelry — up to 70 percent off — and certain models of treadmills, which will be discounted by up to 40 percent off. On New Year's Day, further discounts will occur.

Circuit City

Nationwide and Online
Dec. 26, until supplies last

This bankrupt electronics store bought too much inventory for fall 2008 and now needs to liquidate that overabundance. However, for after-holiday shoppers, the company's downfall means can't-be-beat discounts starting Dec. 26 at still-open stores as well as online, including yet-to-be announced markdowns on already-discounted laptops, flat-screen TVs and digital cameras.
