Coconuts clearance confusion?

Ok, I passed by flushing Main St. today and see a sign for the coconuts saying Clearance 20% of all DVDS. I head inside to take a look and to my dismay ALL dvds are $29.99. Harold and Kumar, Shrek 2. etc.. All $29.99. Can someone explain to me how coconuts can have a clearance with prices like these?

Those are the retail prices of those DVDs. Maybe your store sells things for retail?

KB Toys did that a couple of years ago and they got their asses sued for false advertising. They lost the lawsuit.

I got some good deals at a Coconut's clearance the other day. CDS and DVDS were 25% off, storage units were 50% off. I picked up a couple wooden storage units that hold 270 dvds for $15 each, and some used cds.
