Retailers Ride Deep Discounts to End 201529 Dec, 2015 By: John Latchem
With 2015 coming to a close, the new releases of the final week of the year went mostly unheralded at retail.
In fact, a Target store in Tustin even neglected to put Fox's Hitman: Agent 47 on its shelves, though it's not unheard of for clerks to forget to bring new releases to the floor. The action film comes with a pack-in comic book, a bonus heavily touted in Best Buy's weekly ad circular.
The week was primarily dominated by clearance sales.
Target touted clearance discounts on hundreds of video games, as well as discounts on recent hit DVD and Blu-ray movies.
Best Buy pushed fitness DVDs for $7.99 each, 3D Blu-rays for $12.99 each, TV DVD seasons for $9.99 each, and more categories.
