This is so I can create a wiki template for all the seasonal ...seasons! Can someone list everything chronologically, starting in January and going through December?

This is pretty universal for all stores, right? It's not like some stores have different seasonal sets.

January:
Feb:
March:
April: Easter
May: The Great Save, Patio and Grill (I don't know the official name for this)
June: Patio and Grill continued
July: Back to School, Back to College
August:
September:
October: Halloween
November:
December: Trim a Tree

Please correct me if any of these are wrongly named or dated! Thanks for your input

The Great Save is where we go Costco style and have pallets of bulk-sized product on the floor. It promotes larger retail packages (that we only carry for this event) of national brands.

You're right, I just cant remember exactly which times it does. But about 4 times it goes to value..... I just don't know when....
After Valentines just before Easter, After Easter just before Summer and After Back to college just before Halloween. Most of the time they only are 3 week sets

Home storage or great save was in the middle of resets. This year was weird on great save dropped real fast at my store. It had disappeared after 30 percent markdown.
My store is broken & still recovering....

Back to College is still present in non-college stores. All that chintzy dorm room furniture/lamps/appliances/xl-twin bed sets are emphasized for BTC and some are special items that are NCF.

Is Global Bazaar the only discontinued seasonal event or have there been more in the past?

It had lasted 2 years. I love gb. Nothing else comes to mind, except the size of area was reduced every year since then. The non selling duds are gone. But, the good stuff keep coming back. I love clearance after the season is over.

I'm so glad we didn't have Global Bazaar this year. I know a lot of people love it, but omg, not me! That was a pain to stock with more styrofoam and plastic than Christmas at its worst!

Oh, I know that BTC is still present in non-college stores (for example, home storage and domestics). I meant I don't think its present in mini-seasonal. At least it hasn't been in the past.

They did do btc with those big giant bins on short 4 ft endcaps. With friges, microwave, & storage stuff. I am a p-fresh store aka former greatland.
