Clearance Items Are in the Back for a Reason
Clearance items are a genuinely good deal, with out-of-season items marked down to actual low prices. But good luck getting to the clearance section; it’s in the way back of the store in a hard-to-find spot.
Retailers are betting that you get distracted by “sales” and new trends on your way to those deep discounts and that your hands will be too full with other items to comfortably shop the clearance rack. Once you get to the clearance rack, it’s messy on purpose to make you want to get away from that section as quickly as possible.
