There is a chill in the air again, and that can mean only one ting. Savings! And possibly a cold, but I’m more interested in the savings. Black Friday is nearly upon us once again, and with it more deals than you can shake a tight wad of cash at. I have been spending my days looking through all the best deals, and compiling lists, and it is time to share them with you. Today a look at Younkers, and oh boy do we have a lot to get through.
Younkers is an old firm, well known in the mid west. It started life as a dry goods shop way back in 1856, and since then has grown into a well rounded retail store, selling everything from clothes and shoes to games and toys to Home appliances. They currently operate in over 50 locations, mainly in malls in and around the Iowa region. Unfortunately their Des Moines store, which operate for more than 100 years, closed in 2005 and burned down not long after. that piece of history might be lost, but we are here to talk about the future. And in the future the deals look good.
This was a beast of an ad leak, and getting my hands on it was no easy feat. Nearly 100 pages of savings here, and all manner of coupons and after the fact discounts too. It was so hard to cull the list down to the best deals, but I have made an attempt at the very least. If you click the image at the bottom of the page you can read through the 92 page document yourself, I am sure you will find something to interest you.
