Dillard's Clearance Center in Ohio

The first time that I heard about the Dillard’s Clearance Store was ironically from a news anchor who had moved to the area from Atlanta.

He told me that he always got incredible deals on high-quality shirts. His wife and kids also found great deals too. After my first visit, I understood why it was his favorite discount store to find good deals on business attire.

I’ve found that the Dillard’s Clearance Center is a great place to find a deal on high-quality business and business casual clothing, especially for my husband.

I typically don’t have as much luck in the women’s department as I do at the Gap Clearance Center in Hebron. There are plenty of options for women, they just aren’t always my personal style.

Women will find the most options for clothes and shoes but men still have a large section to choose from too.

Formal Dresses for under $10!

The Dillard’s Clearance Center is a great place to shop for formal dresses, especially if you have an upcoming wedding, homecoming, or prom.

During my first visit to the Clearance Center, I found formal dresses for $9.99 than they were reduced even more with another sale on top of that to make them $1.99!!!!

Less than the cost of a value meal for a formal dress!

I immediately thought that I should share the deal so that people could help restock Cinderella’s Closet in a budget-friendly way. I also thought that if I was going to share that information I should also lead by example and buy some dresses for the cause.

It was pretty fun for me to pick out dresses because I don’t have any girls to shop for.

Shoe Selection at Dillard’s Clearance Center

The shoe area for women is WAY larger than the shoe area for Men and kids. I’ve found shoes for as low as $7.99. There is a large selection of dress shoes including smaller shoe sizes for women.

Home Decor and Housewares

There is a smaller section of the clearance center with bedding and some kitchenware items. The selection for those types of items is definitely more limited.

Tips for Shopping at the Dillard’s Clearance Center

  • Check the stores hours before you go. (They currently open at noon)
  • Make a list of items that you are looking for before you go.
  • Update your family member sizes so that you can purchase items for them if they are not with you.
  • Send pictures of the items to family members that you are unsure of purchasing because if they don’t like it they won’t wear it.
  • All Sales Are Final so make sure that you choose your purchases wisely.
  • Try everything on. Sizing can vary by designer.
  • Always double check pricing at the register. Sometimes an item can be misplaced and put on the wrong sale rack.
  • Allow for plenty of time to check out all of the areas of the store. This is not the type of store you want to feel rushed in.
  • There can also be a long line at the registers and dressing rooms if there is a larger number of visitors that day.
  • The store is organized really well but it’s still very easy to get overwhelmed when you visit because of the sheer volume of clothing in the store.
  • Eat before you visit. You will need energy to power through all of the racks and you also don’t want to shop with anyone who is hangry.

  1. The staff can be a bit ornery at this location.

    Example: They will not price match the exact same item in their store when it’s obvious that the item missed getting tagged in a markdown. This is a big deal if there is only one in your size and has the higher price tag. Their excuse is that people switch tags or they came in at different times, which is bogus.

    It is still worth going to both stores because often they will have different specials and a different selection.

  2. Hi Tracy, have you been back to this Dillilards since last year? I wonder if it is still in such bad disaray ?
    I am trying to decide between driving to Eastgate or Western Hills tomorrow…. lol

  3. Have u ever been to the east gate store? I was just there and items were out of place. I like to dig through but it was bad. They just have the one floor there. There was a lot to choose from in the juniors section. So many dresses and they had buy 1 get two free deal. Bathing suits forget it as they weren’t any cheaper than August of 2015 which was 65%off. And nothing matches unless a person would need like xs bottom and XL top lol. Mens sections are small. The store is very dark in terms of lighting. Apparently there was a center at tri county but it closed.

  4. Christy- I don’t remember but I did see a kids section. It wouldn’t hurt to call. I got almost all of my clothes at the Gap clearance center when I was pregnant.

  5. Use the store locator on the Dillard’s website to find Dillard’s close to you. The clearance centers are marked as such. Another clue is the clearance centers have more limited hours than a regular Dillard’s store.

  6. Is there a listing of nationwide Dillard clearance store locations? I found the one in West Palm Beach and it was great, but I’m living in DC now, and was hoping there was one within driving distance of here.

    I tried searching their website but couldn’t find them.
