The tech team has been alerted that the pic upload feature isn't working. Sorry! But it's the weekend, so it will still be off for Sat and Sun.

That totally explains why a few weeks ago I picked up a super cute pink basket for my daughter in the clearance section and it rang up .1. It was marked 6.00 and was a total impulse buy, but it was so cute and pink I had to get it! My DH as happy too since he was with me and going to Michaels is always an eye opening experience for him when he sees the register total.

I am headed over there today after I take my son to school. I want to do x-mas baskets this year for the family and I need to find some cheap.

Wish me luck!

I know it's a hassle, but can you post some UPCs?

Do all stores active clearance at the same time?

OK went this morning. The clearance isle had been pushed to the side wall. Not one basket on it. Mostly junk. The stuff I did pick up wasn't .1.
They did have 4 $2 grab bags so I bought those. Really random stuff. One had 5 pair of rubber flip flops in it and 2 laundry bags. Another had 15 bags of the wood shavings I thought was Easter grass but later realized it was the stuff used for gift baskets so that made me happy. Also some other summer clearance items like a kite, sand pails, a wood frame that's seen better days, some random scrap book items like look like old rose pins. Kind of fun to open but now I need to hide the crap before my husband comes home from work today and has a coronary -haha he hates junk laying about the house!

Alright, have to chime in here. I work at Michael's. Items are "pennied" when it is time to remove them from the floor and return them to the warehouse or whatever else is planned for them. Some goes to grab bags and such. So, if you find something, of course they will have to sell it to you, but the policy is that once an item is pennied it is no longer for sale.

So for those that have experienced a little challenge at the register, that would be normal because that manager KNOWS he's not supposed to sell it, but maybe isn't sure what corporate's take is on it.

Just thought I'd share.

I have never found a .01 item at Michaels. If I did, I would expect it to be sold to me without a problem. If the manager is not supposed to sell it, why does corporate say its okay? To me, if stores have many .01 items, that they aren't supposed to sell, someone is not doing their job at the store, by making sure it's off the floor.

Honestly, most of your employees probably don't know or understand the policy or what it means. They may very well think that they will be in some kind of trouble.

It's not necessarily about someone not doing their job. Sometimes they just don't have the manpower. I understand what your saying, but selling items at $.01 does not help business. Their average ticket goes down, sales go down and then yes it affects the cashiers because there are no hours to go around. And then yes, things don't get pulled right away because of instead of doing that, what few people they do have around are trying to help customers. Its a horrible cycle. Its hard because many people don't work retail so they just don't understand all aspects of it.

I see both sides because I work retail, but I love a good deal!
