These are the only ones that I noticed. Did a sale recently end or something?

Not at those deep discounts. We won't see those prices again until December of next year. This is why I put a large amount of money to the side for this sale and don't hesitate on my purchases.

Thats retail for you, remember that after Christmas the first 3 months of the year are the slowest months for retail in the year. Companies usually try to make as much money as they can before the new years because they know that the following months wont be as good so they have to prepare for times with low sales... If you know that you arent going to be selling that much you cant offer the low volume of items that your selling at deep discounts like you could during the holidays when the volume of sales was much higher because your company wouldnt be able to pay for operating expenses.
