While Memorial Day is a day meant to celebrate and commemorate all those who have fallen while serving in the United States Armed Forced, along with a long weekend vacation from work and school, Monday, May 28 may be a great day to snag sales.
According to NASDAQ, Memorial Day 2012 will be one of the best in recent years to receive heavy discounts on apparel and home goods. A report from DealNews.com shows that many clothing retailers will offer as much as, if not more than, 50 percent off, even on already discounted items.
Along with clothing and home goods, many outdoor supplies ranging from patio furniture, lawn equipment and grilling items will have slashed prices for MDW.
DealNews.com, however, reported that electronic sales will be slim and nearly devoid of deals, discounts and special offers.
Remember: If you choose to shop the Memorial Day weekend sales online, check for coupons on special offer codes, as many retailers offer additional savings hidden within the Web site. In addition, always check for free or reduced shipping.
So, grab your wallets and eco-friendly shopping bags! From pets, to auto, to apparel to electronics, here are some of the best places, online and in store, to snag a sale during Memorial Day weekend 2012.
