WHERE; Dollar General Stores; As always this is a YMMV; That means EVERY store SHOULD be participating but some say they are not. This is due to lack of training on the stores part as the manager most of the time does not check emails and or gets store ready. The day of, most of the time the extra clearance price IE; 50% off yellow sticker price has to be over ridden. Just be patient and if your store says they are not participating, just go to another one.
CURRENT CORE ITEM CLEARANCE; THIS DOES NOT MEAN THIS IS THE ONLY THING IN THE SALE. REMEMBER TO CHECK YOUR STORE. The pics are some of the items at my store RIGHT NOW. SO this is why it is important to check your store out.

Tips & Tricks to be successful for the upcoming clearance event
-Make sure your app is updated before going to the sale
-Make sure you get there early but check back often as some stores have a ton of overstock clearance items and may be restocking
-Scan your items, it should show 50% off the stickered price, so if the sticker says $2.00 it should show $1.00 in the app. If your store has signs hung and your app still shows $2.00 you can kindly ask the manager if it is supposed to be an extra 50% off the $2.00.
-IT WILL NOT BE AN EXTRA 50% whatever the app shows. So if the app shows $1.00 and sticker says $2.00, IT IS $1.00, NOT 50% off $1.00
-IF EMPLOYEES SAY THEY HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT A CLEARANCE SALE or They are not participating, do not go by their word alone. Scan items from the clearance section. A lot of employees do not know about the sale, nor do they ever.
