Unless you’ve been living in a cave somewhere out in the far reaches of the Dagobah system, you know that the long-awaited new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens, opens this week. While it may be difficult to find movie tickets this weekend, it’s easy to get into the spirit thanks to big Star Wars merchandise sales available right now through the retailers below.

J.C. Penney: Loads of Star Wars gear—T-shirts, slippers, watches, sheet sets, winter hats, fleece throw blankets, and yes, jewelry—is currently marked down 40% to 50% off the original prices. Shoppers also get an extra 20% off if paying with a J.C. Penney credit card, or an extra 15% off for all other payments, plus an extra $10 discount for every $25 spent.

Kohl’s: This retailer always has a combination of inflated prices and heavy discounting, so it’s sometimes difficult to tell if sale prices are good. Seemingly everything Star Wars-related is on sale right now, with markdowns ranging from roughly 25% to 75% off original prices. Combine that with an extra 20% off via the code SNOWYDAY, and there are some good deals to be had on T-shirts, pajamas, bedding, toys, and more.

Target: All this week, Star Wars kids clothing is on sale on a buy one, get one 50% off basis.

ThinkGeek: Star Wars merchandise features prominently in this geeky gift site’s clearance section, including a $10 R2D2 screwdriver (normally $16); a Star Wars throw pillow set for $12.49 (normally $25); R2D2 beer can coolers for $7 (normally $10); and Star Wars ornament sets for $4.79 (normally $8). And what party would be complete without a Star Wars ice cube tray that makes cubes in the shape of Darth Vader’s mask and AT-ATs? Trays are on sale for $7.99 apiece (normally $10).
