    Disneyland Clearance Center?

    The other day I was out shopping with my fiancée and we came across this store called the "Disneyland Clearance Center". It wasn't a regular store, it looked more like a garage sale. There were just boxes of merchandise and folding tables everywhere and all the stuff they were selling was from DL. It was clothes and souvenirs. Has anyone else seen this temporary stores pop up in their area too, and do you have any idea why they're doing this? I thought it might have something to do with the fact that they just got an influx of product with all the 50th stuff and they're trying to get rid of as much stuff as possible.

    They have these around Cali- I have ssen them before, in malls and stuff. Its not a new thing to my knowledge, I believe the Park routinely does this to get rid of old merchandise and make room for new stuff.

    They pop up and last about 60-90 days then go on to the next spot. They have a disclaimer in the store that says that they are not a part of Disney. Most of their merchandise is seasonal and from last season. They also have blemished items. Lots of stuffed characters, shirts, toys, etc...

    A good place for a deal, but sold as-is with no refunds/exchanges.

    They seem to always be busy.

    heard about one of these in the Birdcage mall area in Sacramento
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    Dirton- They are called Disney's Character Warehouse Outlet Store, there is also one in Fullerton right down the street from Disneyland.

    The one you saw in Bridcage has been there for a few weeks. It closes on April 23rd.
    Last year there were 2 of them, one in Woodland & Hayward.

    I think they have an offical site, they come to NorCal every few months.

    One came to CO- a couple years back. I got on their mailing list but I haven't seen anything from them- probably a good thing since I spent about $300 there last time.

    This is the kind of stuff Iger should clean up. you wonder why the dsiney brand keeps slipping in the polls, it's the cheapening of the brand opne plush at a time. Let's hope clearance means Eisner and the board!

    Yes, there are a few of these stores around California states near CA. Generally they pop up when disney sells off large ammounts of overstock/rejected merchandise for cheap. Owners of these little stores usually take out small leases on large stores and try to make a quick buck. Merchandise at these stores is always overstock (generally unpopular merch) and sometimes damages/rejected, so when you see those low prices, beware.
