    Does anyone have any inside information on when the next round of reductions at Neiman Marcus will take place?  (I presume this will be Last Call).  I have my eye on a couple of shirts at my local store...

    I know Saks starts their final markdowns on Tuesday (the 6th) and I would guess that NM's will be pretty close to the same time.

    I was told by an NM salesperson that the Last Call will be in February.

    I was told the same thing by my salesperson. I expected it to be a bit earlier given that the Saks Finale starts this week.

    I have noticed that the Saks markdowns have been better than the Neiman ones, especially given that Saks has had 2 days (after Thanksgiving and after Christmas) where they had an extra 40% off reduced prices in the early morning hours. I caught some excellent deals after Christmas.

    Funny that I was told that the Last Call clearance in Detroit (Great Lakes Crossing) was also in February.

    the one guy i spoke with, sort of short but jovial with a greying beard (he's there all the time of late) told me the last week of january (this was between christmas and new years)

    that's all i know, he didn't elaborate much

    I think I know exactly who you are talking to. The key person is the red-haired she holds the key to selecting things for the discount racks. I learned this when I saw her putting a whole slew of incotex pants on clearance for $19.95. Stupidly I only bought those which would fit me. I am sure that I could have made a small profit on eBay.

    ah good to know

    so it was you who got to those incotex pants first.
    when i went back last time, they only had horrible blues, reds and yellows left, nothing to my liking

    have you noticed, though, that the men's section at the nm last call has been steadily shrinking in size, it's likely half of what it was when the store first opened, overtaken by expanded housewares and children's clothes

    Just came back from Neimans and the presale for Last Call has already started. Basically it is going to be about 40% off the already reduced price. I am thinking that the salesman who told me Feb was thinking of the Neiman Marcus Last Call Outlet, not the store itself. As the poster above me stated, it starts 1/14.

    I went to 2 NM stores today (Paramus & Westchester), good deals to be had.

    I presaled a few items, but most things were gone in my size as usual.
    If you are a 34, 36 or 38 waist then you will be in luck.

    The NMs in the DC area have only reduced their prices by 25% -- not enough to get me to bite.  Does anyone know if another round of reductions is in store and when it will take place?

    Yes - the Last Call pre-sale for the DC stores started yesterday, the actual sale starts next Tuesday, the 3rd. I don't know what took them so long.

    Anyways, the markdowns are now 50%.

    St. Louis NM's presale started either Thursday or Friday of this week. Stopped by after my flight and picked up a few things, but they didn't have the selection at th Atlanta NM last night. Presale lasts until 2/3/04
