They have these around Cali- I have ssen them before, in malls and stuff. Its not a new thing to my knowledge, I believe the Park routinely does this to get rid of old merchandise and make room for new stuff.

They pop up and last about 60-90 days then go on to the next spot. They have a disclaimer in the store that says that they are not a part of Disney. Most of their merchandise is seasonal and from last season. They also have blemished items. Lots of stuffed characters, shirts, toys, etc...
A good place for a deal, but sold as-is with no refunds/exchanges.
This is the kind of stuff Iger should clean up. you wonder why the dsiney brand keeps slipping in the polls, it's the cheapening of the brand opne plush at a time. Let's hope clearance means Eisner and the board!

Yes, there are a few of these stores around California states near CA. Generally they pop up when disney sells off large ammounts of overstock/rejected merchandise for cheap. Owners of these little stores usually take out small leases on large stores and try to make a quick buck. Merchandise at these stores is always overstock (generally unpopular merch) and sometimes damages/rejected, so when you see those low prices, beware.
