Every year, shoppers look forward to Dillard’s New Year’s Eve sale, which has been dubbed the department store chain’s biggest sale. The annual sale offers an additional discount on items that have already been reduced in price.
However, several users on social media have wondered if the sales event takes place in 2022.
Is Dillard’s New Year’s Day Sale in 2022?
According to a note from Dillard’s official Twitter account, the company’s New Year’s Eve sale is not taking place in January.
Dillard confirmed the news in a response to a tweet from KUTV 2News presenter/reporter Jamie McGriff asking about the sale.
In a tweet posted Thursday, McGriff wrote, “Hmmm y’all… Anyone know if @Dillards canceled their annual New Years Eve event??? People seem really quiet #AskingForAFriend.”
In a response to McGriff’s post, the department store chain tweeted: “Dillard’s has thousands of newly reduced prices and amazing deals to buy that we hope you enjoy, but we won’t have any additional discounts on merchandise. permanently reduced price.
The company also reportedly announced the annual sale update via signs installed in Dillard stores.
KARK 4 News anchor Mallory Brooks and other social media users shared a sign screenshot addressed to Dillard’s customers who said, “We will not be having our annual New Year’s Day sale on January 1,” adding “Thousands of dollars in new markdowns can be found throughout the store.”
Brooks tweeted: “In case you were planning on waking up early to get to @Dillards on New Years Day – the annual sale won’t be happening this year! If you’re still looking for a sale , Dillard’s has a clearing center in Pine Bluff that does great business!”
Facebook user Jennifer Johnson wrote: “I just called Dillard’s Tyler [Texas] and the rumor is true!!! No New Years Sale! Look at it like this, we will be all the richer for the new year!! And you can sleep. And you can start the year without a fight!”
Facebook user Angelica Araujo Zuniga also wrote: “They [Dillard’s] are not [having the New Year’s Day sale]!! I actually asked someone at Dillards.”
Facebook user Audrey Tate also shared a post that read, “No 2022 New Years Sale! Just called my local Dillard and asked.”
It’s unclear why the New Year’s Eve sale for 2022 was canceled and whether the annual event will resume the following year.
