Sears will start their mark down on December 26 at fifty percent off Christmas tries a tree. This big store starts marking down in departments. A day or two after that they will mark down the gift boxes and maybe perfume sets. They have some very nice garland here. The garland is a good quality. I find that this garland doesn't shred like the ones you get at Target. They are a little pricey at $10.99 for a little piece. This is why I wait till it goes at least half off. Sometimes I get lucky and can wait till it goes seventy five percent off. However, most of the time the garland is gone before the store marks down to seventy five percent off. This store is in a mall and parking is great. You have lots of room. There are always nice sales people around to help you if needed. If something is marked down but you don't know what the item is priced just ask a friendly cashier and they will scan it for you. You could also look for a price scanner and do it yourself. This store I believe has two self price check areas. I am hoping to get garland this year. I have used it to tie around presents as well as put on the tree and wall. Good luck.
