■ a sale of one's belongings before returning to one's country; a sayonara sale
□ In countries other than Japan, 帰国セール is a common term among Japanese speakers, and in Japan "sayonara sale" is common among English speakers. Since both 帰国セール and "sayonara sale" are used by expatriates in foreign countries, the terms are not part of the standard vocabulary in either Japanese or English.
◇ Because of the nature of 帰国セール, links tend to disappear. A few examples are given here that will hopefully prove to be semi-permanent:
帰国セール：27" TV, FAX, 日本語環境PC,ソファベッド等
