Stores slash prices as Christmas nears

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Black Friday has come and gone, but the deals continue at Mid-State retailers.

With Christmas now less than two weeks away, many stores continue to slash prices to lure shoppers.

Target has dropped prices on many popular toys. All Barbie items are buy one, get one 50% off and the same deal applies to Disney Princess toys.

Powered rides, which are usually a popular Christmas gift for kids, have been marked down to $99 from $179 at the Target store on White Bridge Road in Nashville.

The west Nashville Best Buy offered many discounted items Thursday including televisions, smart phones and tablets.

The iPhone 5s, normally $200, has been marked down to $124.99. If you trade in an old phone you can get a $50 credit to apply toward a new phone.

While such items could cost even less next week, there's no guarantee they'll still be on the shelves.

"We're 13 days to Christmas right now as every day that goes by the chance of having something in stock gets less and less," said Marc Kunkle with Best Buy.

According to several consumer watchdog groups, the best deals this month are computers, mainly the higher quality ones that weren't marked down on Black Friday.

Swimming pools are also a good buy because sales are slower this time of year.

Wedding dresses may also be marked down because engaged couples usually set planning aside during the holidays, slowing business for wedding dress retailers.

Some consumer groups say items you should wait to buy include home furnishings, clothing and accessories and Christmas decorations which are usually marked down more after the first of the year.
