If you like Pier 1 Imports you should check out the Pier 1 Imports Clearance Center. Inventory comes directly from the regular stores, and price reductions for regular items start at 25 percent and can go up to 75 percent. Seasonal items are often reduced up to 90 percent. Some of the best deals in the store are the framed graphics and the desktop frames, but if you’re lucky you can find some absolute steals on furniture. Shipments arrive on Mondays and Thursdays, and for furniture deals, these are the days to go. For accessories, show up at the door on Wednesdays for the Monday shipment and the weekend for the Thursday shipment. 2670 S. Havana St., 303-337-7505.

Furniture is one of life’s major expenses, but at Scandinavian Designs you get more bang for your buck. As it is, the store’s regular prices are refreshingly reasonable but the bottom floor of the building has a year-round clearance center where you can find floor models, scratch-and-dent pieces, and limited stock items for less. Plus, the store has two clearance sales per year – usually one in January and one in August. Call the store for specific dates. 9000 E. Hampden Ave., 303-694-4177.
