    Woolworths Discount Patterns

    Hi all, I know there's been a thousand and one woolworths posts over the last few days but I've yet to see this and beg your forgivness if this has, in fact, been widely reported.

    My local store closed down today and I've been in and out over the last couple of days grabbing some decent bargains, especially on video games. While doing so I made a note of when the discount levels changed and thought this might be useful to those close to stores which close between now and January 5th.

    2 Days Before closing - 50% discount across the store
    1 Day Before closing - 60% discount across the store
    Morning of Day of Closing - 70% discount across the store.
    Afternoon of Day of Closing - 80% discount across the store and mass hysteria.

    From what I saw the change from 70% to 80% came between 12:00 and 13:30, I'd guess around 13:00. As for deals there were still some decent bargains to be had, the best probably being Burnout Paradise at 60% discount and Dead Space for 70% but there were stll some gems even when they moved to the 80% discount level. That said, when they DID change to 80% all hell broke loose with people diving in and grabbing a LOT of the more expensive stuff with at least some of it being bought for resale (based on conversations overheard in the queue).

    As I said, may already be widely known and, of course, different stores may do things, uh, differently but thought it was worth posting. If you do head off then good luck to you and I hope you find something worthwhile.
