You sure about that? I occasionally find items with the color of the week, granted these could have been missed. But, it seems like a lot of work for not much gain considering we are talking about items that have been on the shelves for four weeks taking up space and not selling. Or maybe you are only referring to the larger high retail items?
I am sure, at least in the denim jeans department. We try to go out on Saturday to "pre-plan" for Sunday sales. The jeans that should have been marked down are all missing on Sunday when the color changes and they go to 50% off. They appear the next week. After me noticing this trend I asked a couple of managers and yes.....they do remove them.
Really sucks considering they bale up a lot of this fabric and ship it off if it goes unsold after a certain period of time.
