Zellers Haul!

As most of you know Zellers (in Canada) will soon be going out of business, so  in order to prepare for their closing many stores are having weekly sales on a number of items. Although they do have really great deals going on now I believe many more will emerge a month or so before the closing (my location is shutting down in January). Soon select stores throughout Canada will be transformed into Target! This week I made a trip out to Zellers with a friend, she had told me that the clothing was marked down a lot. I picked up a couple pieces and in all honesty it wasn't the best price, I didn't think it was a good deal deal....that was until my friend she told me it was 70% off the ticket price. First their was the original price, then the sale price, and to get rid of their stash they marked many items including clothing, scarves, bags/purses, belts etc. down even more. I got a couple things for my sisters, and a few things for myself, I'm actually saving the stuff I got for my sisters as a an Eid gift, I just have to add more bits and pieces..I like giving a variety of things (clothes, makeup, bath/body products..)

So here is an overview of the things I purchased.. I want you ladies to guess the price of this total purchase, I'll let you know at the end of the post:)
Here's what I got for my middle sister..
Pure by Alfred Sung Grey Cardigan- $19.97 -> $12.00 -> $7.00 FINAL- $2.10
Purple & Grey Plaid Scarf (Pure by Alfred Sung)- $14.97 -> $10.00 FINAL $3.00
Brown cross body bag (James+Juliet) - $19.97-> $15.00-> FINAL $4.50

Here's what I picked for my younger sister..
Creme colored hoody (Pure by Alfred Sung)- $29.97 -> $20.00 -> FINAL $6.00
Pashmina scarf (James + Juliet)- $12.97 -> $10.00 -> FINAL $3.00
Brown studded belt (Pure by Alfred Sung)- $12.97 -> $7.00 -> $3.00 FINAL .90 cents

...and lastly here's what I got myself
Mint T-shirt with swirls (Alfred Sung) $14.97 -> $7.00 FINAL $2.10
Studded Belt (Pure by Alfred) $12.97 -> $7.00 -> $3.00 FINAL .90 cents
Black Floral scarf (James+Juliet) $19.97 -> $15.00 FINAL $4.50
Blue and White Polka Dot (James+Juliet) $12.97 -> $10.00 FINAL $3.00
Small Polka Dot Scarf (James+Juliet) $10.00 -> $7.00 FINAL $2.10

So how do you think I did???
3 tops, 5 scarves, 2 belts, and one bag all for..... $36.33
I highly suggest checking out your local Zellers in the near future!! I'm sure you'll find some sort of amazing deal there. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend:)

  2. I was so shocked as well haha! Zellers is like a smaller version of Wal-Mart I would say. It has all the departments Wallie has (food, clothing electronics etc..) but on a smaller scale.

  4. I didn't know they were ALL going out of business! even the ones in smaller towns?
    I have always found the prices at Zellers to be exorbitant for a 'discount' retailer- no wonder they're going out of business! they cannot compete with the prices at walmart.

  11. I'm super duper sad to see Zellers go. :( The quality of the clothing is far superior to Walmarts...I really hope Target clothes are decent. I buy a lot of Nevada and other clothing for my children there. Better go see what I can find for back to school..sigh.. rip zellers! Another Canadian business disappears!

    1. Believe it or not I'm kind of sad too! I recently started going there more and more, and to know that another Canadian business is goner sucks:( My mom bougght some of my siblings clothes there too, and I agree the quality is great and they have such good policies (if clothes wear & tear)!! Heck I get clothes there too, and I really LOVE them. I am excited for Target but who knows...the U.S stuff is reasonably cheap..hopefully it's the same way here for us. I know our prices are gonna be higher no doubt but hopefully it's similar.
