(Although there's an older Kmart thread, I figured a new topic would be more relevant and helpful.)Consumerist article with list of closures (sorted by state, as of March 7th)
Just got back from the local Kmart (Lancaster, OH). All toys, including Lego sets, are 20% off the normal store price, although there are a few older sets with slightly marked down clearance price tags.
The clearance just started today (Thursday, March 10th), so nothing was really picked over yet. They do have some March wave sets, namely, the two smaller Captain America: Civil War
sets and some Mighty Micros, plus plenty of Minecraft, City, Ninjago, Creator, Friends, and Elves, as well as some older Chima and Agents sets (primarily in a clearance/miscellaneous aisle). Also, there were some other Marvel/DC Super Heroes and Star Wars
sets, but not really a wide selection. I did spot some "retired"/"sold out" sets in the Friends area and elsewhere (e.g. Guardians of the Galaxy #76020
).For those who have been to stores farther along in the closure process this year,
how low did the Lego discounts get and on what timetable? (E.g., how fast did any discounts drop after the clearance sale started?) -- I'm primarily wondering if much deeper price slashes are possible, say down to 40% or more off, even if its just for some odd Friend sets, as I'm looking, but not in a hurry, to build up a cache of useful parts for MOC'ing and such. -- I also plan on stopping in again (and again) at this Kmart location in the coming weeks, so I should post some updates, whether the discounts improve or not.
