Returns from The Webster hit the clearance rack...

As I've blogged about in the past, Target tends to send customer returns of online-only items directly to the clearance rack.  They probably don't want to bother with shipping them back to their central distributor, putting it back into their online inventory, etc. etc.  Whatever the reason, I've noticed more and more online-only items from The Webster showing up on the womens clearance rack, like this adorable cross-back navy eyelet dress.  It retails for $39.99, but right now it's just $10.81 at my local Target store.  And while it looks cute on the model, I'm glad I passed it up, because it has received  poor reviews on Target.com.  I also found this pretty petite-sized Mango Berry Tunic reduced to ridiculously low price of  $5.50, which I nabbed for my teenage niece.

Cool-I will keep a look out! I have been getting some cute online clearance finds - not the Webster, but great stuff. Got my boss a killer cute petite dress for $5. The whole office complimented her that day!

When I returned a bunch of things that I bought online, the woman at the counter stated "I love handling the online returns". I thought she was being sarcastic. She indicated that was not the case and she showed me. A scarf that I bought for 14.99 was marked down to 3.00 as she processed the return. She said the employees get first dibs at the returns and they can buy the stuff dirt cheap.

Do you know when the In-Store items go on sale?

I really hope my store gets some Webster returns, they didn't have much of it to start with.

Oh to get first dibs on returns...

I found that "mango berry" top on clearance at my store, too for about $5. It is a perfect match with the Merona coral colored shorts they have, too. If you find it and it's not your size, try it on. I found the small, but it fits great and I'm usually a medium or large. The style is also quite figure flattering.

The maxi dresses were actually pretty well made! I bought two of them & a bikini to go with it

Not all the Webster collection on sale, the intimate collection is not. Also some of the Privet House items are on sale.

Yikes! I feel bad for the team member Tina worked with! I work at target as a GSTL and if that worker is setting aside returns, especially those that are clearance or online returns...she will probably get fired for that kind of behavior, I have seen it many times in the past. Merchandise has to be out on the sales floor before the team members can shop for it.
