L'eggs pantyhose for a dollar a pair. Beyonce's Pulse perfume for $18 a bottle. And a Gillette Venus shaver for $2.

Those are just some of the deals we found at the new Jomarket at the Jomar store in Northeast Philadelphia. Jomar stores are best known for their discounted clothing and fabric.

Jomar's Mark Segal explains the concept, "In this economy, we have decided to add a commodities room, where we offer drug store merchandise for pretty much half-price of what you could find at the drug store."

Among the other deals we found: Nexxus Humectress conditioner for $2, Centrum Silver vitamins for $6, and Dayquil for $3.

Segal says, "Some of the merchandise is close to a sell-by date or a best-used-by date. Or some of it we get because the company has changed the branding or the packaging."

Plus, there are items that can't go bad, like $1 light bulbs and small appliances at half-off the manufacturer's suggested retail price.

The Jomarkets are located inside Jomar stores and are open the same hours. To find a location near you, click here.
