Sears announced it is closing 72 more locations, but walk — don’t run — to the store for deals.
“Sears can always use inventory to fulfill online orders,” she added. The stores may take months to unload all leftover items and release their steepest discounts.
Consumers should also ask managers if there will be further price reductions, and ask if the store will pay the difference should the price fall again after purchase.
Sears did not respond to a request for comment.

Here are a few ways to get the best deals:
• Look for coupons or better prices from other retailers. Apps like Ranktracer.com, ShopSavvy.com and PriceGrabber look for the lowest price for the same or similar products.
• Ask Sears to match the price if good are cheaper elsewhere, and make a note of today’s prices so you can calculate your own discount when the goods go on sale.
• Don’t buy products with poor reviews. It’s more difficult to get a product repaired if the store has closed. Review return policies before you buy anything.
