      I’m a little bummed…I needed to go to the grocery store anyway and was hoping to score some post-Valentines bargains. The selection that was left was piddly and I bought nothing. Oh well.

        Wasn’t looking for food items. I was looking for something I could use as a Christmas gift. I shop very early, trying to purchase one gift per month. Have 8 people In my immediate family. Found this two hearts entwined hand carved gem for $16. Got 2 for my sisters. Gonna engrave something on a gold plaque and attach it.

          I went this morning and saw a lady with 2 carts full of stuff. Like a garbage bag full of stuff animals, piles of gift bags, probably 30 boxes of chocolate, piles of candy.

          I was kinda bummer there was nothing left. I didn’t get any valentines chocolate so i was going to buy myself some. Nothing left.

            I live in Missouri and had the same experience. I was buying for my grandchildren as I hadn’t gotten them anything before Valentines Day due to schedule. It was so different than usual.

              We went out around noon today and then had time to kill before meeting our daughter when she got off work. Went to Walmart, Target, and Walgreens. Found nothing.

                Hi Walgreens or CVS for their after holiday sales. Most people forget about them and we’ve gotten great stuff.

                  I had to grab something before work at the grocery store and the employees were pulling candy off the shelves as fast as they could at 7:45 am!

                  Didn’t need any but kind of a bummer.

                    I find the same each Holiday. Stores are only purchasing enough for the Holiday and also some stores can send their candy by for credit. I did not know that until I went to a name brand candy outlet and saw all the “packages” of holiday candy that was sent back.

                    Can’t remember the name right off hand.

                      Yeah I went to Walgreens tonight for other stuff but checked out the Valentine’s Day stuff and hardly anything and most of what was left had nuts.

                        I went to dollar general and was hoping to get some stuff. No sale what’s so ever. Their dying roses were on sale. Maybe…

                          I work retail and will tell you holiday items have taken a real hit. I tell customers to buy it when they see it (months early) because we aren’t getting replenished like in the pre-covid days.

                          We have seen less and less holiday merchandise to mark down. And often just sell out of it before the holiday hits.

                            Walgreens is almost always a good place to hit after valentines. People don’t think to go there and they usually have a lot of stuff left that’s marked down!

                              Most stores aren’t over buying for holidays anymore. Even running low before the holiday. Want something then you better get it early.
