For the budget-minded consumer, a store going out of business could still be conducting monkey business.
Not all liquidation sales are really what they claim to be.
Some stores will mark up the merchandise before they mark it down – making the discount appear to be larger than it really is.
Even though the retailer is going out of business, it still needs to get as much cash for its inventory as possible. Be careful of “bait and switch” tactics. This entails a store advertising hefty discounts only to substitute inferior brands for existing product at sale time.
When shopping bankruptcy sales, be cautious. Do research and make careful comparisons to avoid being taken advantage of.
