With just days left till Christmas, you haven't completed your shopping?

No need to stress: Stores are now starting to slash prices, and in some cases the deals are even better than Black Friday.

Many People Not Finished

At the Target store in Newport, KY, shoppers like Jennifer Trenton were rushing to finish their Christmas shopping this final week.

"I'm almost, almost done," she said"

Mary Devin explained "I'm a last minute shopper, I like the hustle and bustle of Christmas time, so I never start in June, July, and August."

They are in luck.

Target, and other retailers, are now starting to slash prices to clear as much of this inventory as they can by Christmas, especially cold weather gear that has not been selling.

Right now, winter clothing is 30% off at Target, but in the next few days it's going to get even better than that.

Target manager Lori Morris explained "we have some really great sales coming up on Sunday, all of our clothing will be on sale. Now it's 30% off, it will go up, and we also have great deals on electronics."

Other stores are starting to roll out all stops as well.

  • Kohl's is offering $10 Kohl's cash with every $50 purchase till Christmas.
  • Sears is having a big one day sale Saturday.
  • Macy's is also having a one day sale, with an extra 25% off clearance items.
  • Toys r Us is throwing  a 2 day wrap-it-up sale this weekend, with a number of buy one get one deals.

Retailers have a ton of unsold holiday and winter merchandise to move.

"Absolutely, you can come in four days before Christmas and still get that great deal," Target's Morris said,
You can bet they'll be slashing prices to move it, right up till December 25th.

As always, don't waste your money.
