Nike last week ran a 48-hour Nike Flash Sale offering discounts as much as 40 percent on more than 200 items on its website, including products from its premium Jordan brand.

The lower prices were also advertised through Groupon Inc.’s site. The deal started on October 12

Nike rarely hold sales. The move comes as Nike’s sales declined 3 percent in North America in the latest quarter, said the American marketplace remains promotional, and warned of challenges in quarters ahead. Sales globally were flat.

A link to the Flash sale now states, “NIKE FLASH It’s over—Sorry you missed this one. BE READY FOR THE NEXT ONE Sign up to get notified about our next Nike Flash Sale. SIGN UP”
