    There seems to be lots of misunderstandings in this thread. There was lots left at Jane/Wilson today. 7 bikes too.
    There was a bunch of 24-26 tvs left at 30% off, video games were 40% off but most were over priced even with discount. Blank Media was 40% off, Toys were 50% off. Cookware was 60% off. Basically everything the ad the person posted for the other location. Prices before discount was the old tagged prices from about 3 months ago. So whatever it says on your tags now it should be after as well. I scanned about 70 items and most were exactly as tagged. Although some games were mispriced.

    Nothing to get excited about but not bad:

    60% off xbox,ps3,wii accessories
    50% off prepaid phones, Samsung Stunt Virgin Mobile $24.99/Bell LG 2 up to $30.00 in savings $36.99
    Infiniti by Conair Curling WAnd $22.50
    50% off Vitamins
    Always Tampoons multi pack 40 with $10.00 in coupons inside $4.99
    Pet Supplies/some food 30% off
    50% off bedding etc....
    70% off blinds(lots left)


    RIP OFFED!

    -10% OFF FOOD, some were expired


    -30% off damaged chairs

    -10% off cleaning supplies like TIDE, AJAX etc

    Took a trip to Westmount Zellers in London today.
    Hasn't gotten to the sales listed on here recently.
    Most things are up to 40% off now, but still way to costly IMO.
    I did notice that pet supplies/food was only 20% off as I wanted to get a toy for my parent's puppy.
    Video games/multimedia only around 40%. And considering the starting price, still way to expensive.

    A lot of prices have disappeared from the shelves, which makes it hard to know what the starting price is. I did notice that they have been putting sticker prices on things. A certain pillow design I have been waiting to go on sale is stickered at $24.99. I could have sworn it was less than $20 when it was on a shelf last time I was there. Made me wonder if they are not still inflating prices.

    I don't think they are inflating prices rather than keeping to the prices from 3-4 months ago. Prices have jumped around in ALL Zellers since the start of the closing sales, in an attempt to confuse consumers. I do know a few prices on some items like Blank Media for example was always $36.99 for 100 pack Sony dvd+r. Last month they were lower priced at $24.99 for most of the month, but that was not the original sticker price. They do have some stickered in an attempt to make them look more like deals with the big red sales tags but don't fall for it.

    There's deals to be found if you know what the prices are elsewhere in advance. For example the Blank media above is always cheaper at many places and can be bought for less than $20.00 many times during the year. Why pay more for them at ZELLERS even with the discount.

    I completely agree that it is in the shopper's best interest to know your items and prices before you shop at any of the clearance Zellers.
    Almost everyone found that price were inflated before this clearance, so compare to other competitor stores' pricing.
    Also, when you have no ability to exchange or return- you better be really sure that Zeller's item is exactly what you want.
    TRADING COUPONS: FOOD, DENTAL, SOAP / BODY WASH/DEODORANT, SPECIAL CREAMS, MAKEUP, HEALTH, AIR FRESHNERS, HAIRCOLOUR, CLEANING, HAIRCARE/ SHAMPOO, DIAPERS, SHAVING, PET, MEDICINE,LAUNDRY, STORES, LONDON BUSINESSES, FAST FOOD, BATTERYPRODUCTS, CHILDREN FOOD and TOY, SMOKING CESSATION and lots more ​!!

    most of you probably haven't noticed that they have been slowly inflating prices for weeks now in preparation for the liquidations.. they're sneaky sons of .... well, you know whats... all i can suggest though is please don't blame the employees at store level - it's all head office that's to blame for this.. even if the employees are rude and cranky, it's uncalled for, i know, but put yourself in their place.. everyone of them will be out of a job sooner or later.. head office is the evil entity

    the only time i saw some decent prices was when they had an extra 50% off clearance, and that was so long ago!

    I did notice the price on blank media was wildly out of proportion. Same with the printer ink. I can still get it cheaper at Walmart, even after the sale price (which I think was around 30-40% or so).

    I should add that I checked out the pillow AFTER liquidation had already started. When I first looked at it, I'm certain it was on the shelf with a price around $19.99 with only 10% off. Now it's suddenly in a bin, stickered for $24.99 (I forget the percentage off, but not enough for me to buy it). Not the deal I was hoping for.

    well we definitely know they have zero business sense... HBC has driven the company into the ground and are now making it a circus of nonsense.

    I got caught on an expired item. I checked it over at the store, and I'd never bought it before so I had no idea it could expire. They put the security sticker over the expiry date so you couldn't see it at all. Turns out it expired in November of 2011. Well before liquidation even started. That's disgusting.

    Sadly, what they are doing is what makes business sense these days. They are inflating prices so that on paper they can show greater losses when they really liquidate at true market prices. If they sell an item which cost them $80 for $100, it's a $20 profit, but if they say it "cost" them $120, the same item is a $20 "loss". They will use these "huge losses" to offset profits, in other words: to reduce any taxes they would have to pay. They are gaming the system with these bogus losses. They are very smart and our government will pat these "job creators" on the back while putting a greater burden on the back of ordinary taxpayers so that these corporations can "save the economy". If John or Mary Taxpayer did the same thing, they would get an aggressive audit up the wahoo. Our tax policies are socialism for the rich and well connected.
