“Eighty-six” is slang meaning “to get rid of.” It comes from 1930s soda-counter slang meaning that an item was sold out. There is varying anecdotal evidence about why the term “eighty-six” was used, but the most common theory is that it’s rhyming slang for “nix“. Whatever. You’re going to love how we “86” a bunch of inventory that’s overstayed its welcome here at SharpShooters. Our 86 Sale opens for Members on Friday August 5, and for all customers Saturday & Sunday.
