On Monday afternoon, discount signs were up inside of the Fairview Heights store at the Lincoln Place Shopping Center. Mark downs ranged from 10 to 40 percent off.

All sales are final leading up to the temporary closure.

“This inventory sell-off offers customers a great opportunity to get some amazing deals and save their families money during the holidays,” the company wrote Monday. “We’re grateful for our loyal metro-east shoppers, hope to finish the year strong, and re-open with an even better version of Here Today next year.”

Here Today will be closed Thanksgiving Day. Reopening dates for existing stores and the new Springfield store are yet to be released.
