William-Sonoma / Potttery Barn / West Elm Outlet 4708 Spottswood Ave, Memphis – This actually run as two stores in a strip mall with the Williams-Sonoma store for cookware and food and the the Pottery Barn/West Elm store next door with the furniture and home decor. Prices and discounts vary but good prices on seasonal holiday items can be easier to time with good deals in the week leading up to the holiday and steep discounts the week after the holiday.
Essex Bargain Hunt – there are two locations in the Memphis area, one in Germantown, TN and one in Southaven, MS. This retailer buys truckloads of refurbished items, boxed customer returns and overstocks from 6 major retailers including Amazon & Walmart. The price sticker usually includes a date on it. Starting 30 days after that date, a10% discount is taken off the price at the register. Every 10 days afterwards the discount is increased up to 90% off. Since the same item may have arrived at the store on different shipments, it can pay to “hunt” for the item that has been sitting the longest.
Memphis Outlet (aka Graceland Outlet) – On Elvis Presley Blvd up the street from Graceland. This store sells discounted Elvis and Rock-n-roll memorabilia. This may not be a favorite of locals, but if you have out of town guests wanting souvenirs, it may be worth checking out.
