Mid-Week Update

I was at Target today and they had Superman toys 50% off, for $9.98, with a $5 coupon attached, making the toys $4.98 each. There were two to choose from a Superman cape (which could be made into a Halloween costume + it makes flying noises) and a toy that makes noise when the child throws punches (I opted to get the cape instead!!). If they mark the toys down again next week to $4.98, potentionally free Superman toys!!! So check your Target and see if they have them.

I didn't see much else on clearance, this is a slow clearance time. I don't really get into the Halloween clearance, so the next clearance I am looking forward to is Christmas!! I've started to go through my Christmas stockpile from last year, to see what I need and honestly don't need much of anything! I have lots of wrapping paper, gift bags, ornaments, etc. etc. I try to have self control when it comes to the Christmas clearance, but it's very hard!!

I updated the baby stuff page today and found many baby items on sale, and ship free on $25+! You can mix and match books, toys, etc to get to $25. If you have a baby shower coming up or you need baby stuff for your little one, there are lots of cute outfits and more. Also, there are Disney watches on sale, costumes, toys and more that ship free, see the list.

Buy, Buy Tops Stores

I hope you are having a good week. I just heard on the news today that Giant Eagle has bought 18 Tops stores. Everyone knew this was coming but I will be really disappointed if I only have Giant Eagle to choose from for deal shopping. Right now, I split my shopping between Tops and Giant Eagle, always looking for the loss leaders. If Tops is gone, my choices are limited. Not looking like a good day for bargain shoppers!

Here's the article:
Tops Markets’ stores in Northeast Ohio are being lopped off from their parent company, Dutch grocer Royal Ahold N.V., which wants to sell them by the end of the year.The decision affects 46 stores in Greater Cleveland, Akron, Youngstown and Norwalk, and about 3,800 full- and part-time employees, who learned the news late Thursday.“This geographically separate region is no longer considered a core part of Tops’ market area,” Ahold said in a statement released late Thursday.“We want to focus our priorities on strengthening Tops’ position in our core markets in New York and Pennsylvania,” said Denny Hopkins, vice president of advertising and public relations for Tops and parent company Giant Food Stores LLC in Carlisle, Pa.... While Tops is the No. 1 grocer in its home turf of Greater Buffalo/Niagara, its Northeast Ohio stores have been bleeding sales and losing market share to market leader Giant Eagle Inc.While Tops had 28 percent of the Greater Cleveland grocery market in 2000, Tops’ market share had dropped to less than 25 percent by June 2005, according to Trade Dimensions International Inc., a firm that tracks market share. And that was before arch-rival Giant Eagle started heavily promoting its lowered prices, in-store butchers and Fuelperks gasoline-discount program.Retail analyst Robert Antall, chief executive of LakeWest Group LLC in Cleveland, said Ahold had been struggling to find a spot for the Tops stores in a marketplace being invaded by discounters like Wal-Mart and Marc’s Deeper Discount Stores.
