    meanings

    Hi, all
    I want to know about the meaning of the expressions below:
    sidewalk sale, red tag sale, white sale, blue light special, liquidation sale, warehouse sale, tent sale.
    Is a sidewalk sale and tent sale similar?

    Thanks

    What about my other question. There are some, haven't answered yet.

    Red tag sale ... only goods that carry a red tag are being offered at a reduced price.

    White sale...... usually refers to Electrical items only.

    Kitosdad is confusing 'white sale' with 'white goods' sale.

    A white sale is a marketing strategy where a store steeply discounts its merchandise to increase sales during a short period of time.
    In 1878, John Wanamaker of Philadelphia department store fame decreed January to be the time for a white sale. Bed linens, which were available in white only, were sold at a discount. It is believed he might have done so to keep linen makers in business during a slow time of year.

    Today, white sales usually revolve around household items. However, they no longer only involve items that are white in color, and they are not restricted to take place in the month of January. Also, it is possible to have a white sale on durable goods or services.
    Wiki.

    In sitcoms like Will and Grace, where one of the characters is depicted as a shop-a-holic, she will say with elation, "Bloomingdales is having a white sale!"
