Shoppers who flocked to the soon-to-be-closed downtown St. Paul store saw discounts of 20 to 40 percent, disappointing some.

What a worthless sale... considering that Macy's charges 50% more than target or bed bath and beyond for the same thing already

I used to spend a ton of money at Dayton's and would occasionally shop at Marshall Field's until they change one too many traditions. I have never been in a Macy's but perhaps I will make the trip when the discounts get bigger.

Buyer beware! When Macy's closed the Brookdale store, everything was discounted from MSRP. This meant that most evertyhing was priced higher than their usual sale prices.

It would be rather illogical for Macy's to sell their items much below the prices they can get for the same items at other stores in the cities here as it is not very difficult or expensive to ship the item accross town and charge their normal price. If Macy's was going out of business entirely you might see bigger discounts, but even in this case they wouldn't go below cost because they could sell it to another department store company at cost. It is pretty rare that a single store in an area going out of business has prices much below their usual price. This MIGHT happen if the one store going out of business was a long distance from other stores that the company might operate. This is simply not the case here, so I don't expect huge bargains.
