LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

Like many stores, workers are already putting up those red and yellow clearance signs in hopes that it will draw more people for the very last sale of the year.

Places like Walmart, Kohl's, Kmart, Target and other big box stores are marking down items from 15 to 70 percent off and it's not all leftover Christmas decorations. Several products such as shoes, apparel and electronics. Target for example is giving away a 150 dollar gift card when you purchase the Canon EOS Rebel SL1, other stores like Toys R US cutting the prices of select toys in half, even Macy's is getting on these sales by offering web busters like an additional 25 percent off on items that are already marked as clearance. Kmart is approaching customers in a unique way, offering discounts on gas, if you spend 25 dollars or more on select Proctor and Gamble products they are giving away coupons for 50 cents off per gallon.

Many people have received gift cards this holiday and stores like these are anticipating to see them being used so whether you join crowds or hold off this will most likely be last biggest sale of 2013.
