Deb Shops Outlet/Clearance
Although Deb Shops is already focused on offering clothing and other merchandise at prices that are lower than its competitors, it slices prices even more during periodic sales and clearances. Usually, if a product isn't flying off the shelves within two week of being featured in Deb Shops stores, then it's placed on clearance. Clearance items allow customers to get Deb Shops merchandise at the best rates, and browsing the clearance section is easy to do by simply clicking "Sale" from the Deb Shops home page. Only the categories that have sale items listed in them will be listed, so if you can't find a specific category, it's because there aren't currently any items on sale within those categories.
Deb Shops is a specialty retail store in the United States that sells women's clothing under its own private labels as well as under other labels. Similar in tone to stores like Rainbow and Charlotte Russe, Deb Shops has recently become one of the leading retailers of women's plus size clothing. Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Deb operates more than 337 stores in more than 42 states across the nation.
Initially, the founders of Deb Shops didn't start the company with intentions of selling plus size junior and women's clothing. Instead, it was founded as a hosiery company that sold hosiery, lingerie and makeup foundations in a variety of styles and colors. The company began in 1932, so the market was quite a bit different back then than it is today. Still, the stores seemed to flourish, and by 1939, the company added nylon stockings to its inventory once they began being manufactured.
Throughout the 50s, the company expanded throughout Philadelphia, and the original founders' sons started to become more involved in the business. As they began putting stock in the business, it began to flourish even more and took on even more growth as more and more suburban and shopping mall areas were formed. By the 70s, the owners focused on closing the lower stores and opening larger ones inside shopping malls. Once it began its urban expansion, then the company officially changed its name to Deb Shops and started to focus on offering junior and women's clothing.
It wasn't until the early 2000s that Deb Shops began to focus on offering plus size junior and women's clothing, but when it did, the store experienced even more popularity. By changing its business model to focus on providing plus-size juniors and women with the same stylish clothing as their smaller counterparts, Deb Shops nearly doubled its profits. Additionally, it began to offer customers its own credit line which made it possible for them to purchase the merchandise that they desired when they desired it and then pay off the balance of their credit lines over time. Not only did this help increase sales and interest obtained for extending the credit, but it also provided Deb Shops with opportunities to contact its customer via direct mail.
Now customers can enjoy shopping Deb Shops online at its website where they can experience special online savings that they can't get in stores. In addition, if customers choose to sign up to Deb Shops' email list, then they'll get special coupons, discounts and codes delivered directly to their email accounts. To top it all off, they'll also be the first one informed of any new online sales or clearances on the website so that they'll have plenty of opportunity to shop the clearance items before they're all gone.
