“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. Yes, the “8/6” sale starts on 8/5 and also goes to 8/7, but that’s not catchy is it? Anyway, the 86 Sale is all weekend.

I’m a member, unfortunately out of town this weekend. Are these prices good online?
No, unfortunately, we can’t advertise these prices on individual products online, lest our suppliers scream at us in bad tones. 😉
Members can take advantage of the sale on Friday, whereas everyone else gets it on Saturday & Sunday.
