Retailers who didn’t sell enough products in the run up to Christmas will be slashing prices and offering great after Christmas sales to get those items off the shelf.
This year after Christmas sales are expected to start even earlier — just like Black Friday sales. Last year, some after Christmas sales began on Christmas Eve. The trend is likely to continue this year, DealNews notes.
In 2012, 19% of after Christmas sales were rated as “Editor’s Choice” quality deals, meaning they were the best DealNews had noted all year. 2013 is anticipated to bring an even higher number of top after Christmas sales.
Among the items seeing the best after Christmas sales this year will likely be apparel, Christmas decorations and brand name HDTVs.
Look out for steep after Christmas sales at retailers including GAP (GPS), Staples (SPLS), Neiman Marcus, Home Depot (HD), Lowe’s (LOW) and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Many retailers will be sending out emails announcing after Christmas deals, so watch that inbox.
