April

So, by now you've probably heard. Saks Fifth Avenue at Tampa's WestShore Plaza is closing May 4. 

The upscale retailer announced the news Tuesday. Our colleague Susan Thurston has all the details here

But what we really wanted to know was: Will there be sales? Late Tuesday afternoon, we got our answer. 

Nope. 

Saks' spokespeople say that because the store closure is so soon, there won't be any grand clearance sales. Instead, the merchandize is getting shipped to other stores. 

Booo. Guess I'll never get that Saks shopping spree after all...

That doesn't mean there's no hope. The store is having a "Friends and Family" sale right now on jewelry (25 percent off). 

So if any of my friends or family wants to take me to Saks...
