    Anyone want to use this an an example of marketing for a class???

    I just got an email from Justice. (It's a pre-teen clothing store, and all the kids in the girl's elementary school adore it!)

    I woudn't shop there online anyway, since there's a store about 2 miles away. But I did look to see what they had.

    Here's my favorite item of the day:

    "Printed Bootie Slipper
    $16.50 (original price)
    $ 16.49 (sale price)
    "





    Of course, the whole store is on sale for 40% off-- that's their typical marketing. They're expensive, but you can always get a 40% off coupon, giving the appearance of having a wonderful sale. Given the discount, their prices are normally decent.

    Still, that's one heck of a sale!!!!

    When I worked at a clothing boutique, they had me go through all the clearance merchandise and slash out the original price and write in with a marker a price that was 1 cent less. Then, when scanned, the computer would take off 60% to get a clearance price. It seemed ridiculous but they said they had to do that per company policy :dizzy:

    I get a flyer from Justice often. I don't know why. My daughters are 31 and 36.
