The Final Markdown is one of New England's favorite shopping experiences. With stores conveniently located along the I91 corridor we stretch from Manchester Connecticut, to Springfield Massachusetts and north to rustic Deerfield Massachusetts. Each store is fashioned as their own stand alone value providing boutique.
In business for over a decade our philosophy has never wavered. We are a premium outlet retailer, dedicated to seeking out first quality products from around the world and selling those prodcuts at prices that provide our customers with true, unbeatable value.
Known nationally for our famous 3 for $1.00 greeting card selection we offer much more. Our vast array of paper goods, bags, tissues and wrapping paper is unsurpassed. We are however much more than cards, our health and beauty aids, books, garden, housewares and food departments which are all apart of each store.
In addition to these departments, we constantly seek out great buys in clothing, pet supplies and office products that we know are real values. Some deals only last days or a week, but everyday something new is coming, and once you have shopped with us "you know if it wasn't a deal that it wouldn't be at The Final Markdown!"
The Final Markdown is honored to be a Corporate Sponsor of Operation Gratitude, an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that sends care packages to our brave troops overseas. Most importantly, each package includes letters of encouragement from appreciative citizens. Their 300,000th box was packed on December 15, 2007!
Their mission is to 'lift troop morale and express the appreciation of the American people for the sacrifices of the men and women defending our freedom.'
'I appreciate what you guys do. This is my third combat deployment since 2003 and I have never seen the constant support from anyone else. You guys are in our hearts and prayers, keep up the great work.'
The Final Markdown donated 150,000 blank greeting cards so the troops could have something to send to their friends and family back home. (Any card they send back is at no charge to them.)
'The greeting cards were really good, especially around the holidays and it doesn't take long here for cards to become scarce.'
Actor Ben Affleck helped kick off the 2007 Holiday Drive, joining the volunteers on the assembly line filling packages. He spoke about his experience on the Live With Regis and Kelly show on December 4, 2007.
