In the spirit of the blog, I want to share the birthday bargain I found a couple of days ago. Having not yet decided what to get Kat for her birthday, I stopped at a nearby Gordman's. Gordman's doesn't carry a wide selection of toys, but their prices are so good on the toys they do carry, I thought it was worth checking them out.
Gordman's slogan is "something unexpected". For them to carry a large item, such as a bike, is very unexpected. But they did have one, and it was an amazing price. The sticker said the 16-inch Barbie bike retailed for $77.00, but that Gordman's price was $49.00. But the box was slightly damaged (I could tell the bike inside couldn't possibly have been damaged, though), so it was marked down to $37.00. We'd been toying with the idea of a new bike for Kat; at that price, the decision was made. But it gets better. The store was taking an additional 33% off all clearance merchandise. The bike rang up at $24.79!
It took Shane about an hour to assemble the bike, and with that comes the peace of mind knowing it was assembled correctly and not by some stock boy in a hurry to get off work.
Kat loves it! And so do we.
