Memorial Day Weekend Sales

Memorial Day is much more than another shopping holiday. Celebrated on the last Monday in May, Memorial Day is a time to remember the fallen men and women who have served in the U.S. military. Every year, families visit the graves of those who have died and decorate them with American flags or flowers.

Many people have the Monday off from work and school, so retailers like to keep everyone busy with deals to ring in the warm-weather season.

Shopping Memorial Day Weekend: Sales to Expect

Memorial Day is one of the biggest times for shopping in the United States. As the unofficial start of the summer season, people around the country are getting ready for road trips, lounging poolside, hosting barbecues and spending plenty of time outdoors. Of course, retailers are offering discounts on everything they need to enjoy the most of their future plans.

Here are a few categories you'll find discounted during the holiday.

  • Spring Apparel

    The start of summer means discounts on last season's apparel. Stores like Ralph Lauren, Nordstrom and GAP are sure to hold sales. So stock up on skirts, sandals, shorts, hats and everything in between. You'll need new outfits for your next getaway or vacation.

  • Home Goods

    Summer calls for entertaining friends and family at home. Luckily, retailers are dropping prices on items like small kitchen appliances and kitchen supplies. Visit retailers like Sears and Home Depot for options.

  • Sporting Goods and Outdoor Gear

    Slather on your sunscreen, it's time to go outside! Enjoy the great outdoors with gear from retailers like Dick's Sporting Goods and REI.

Tip: Don't forget about Dad! Memorial Day weekend is a good time get a head start on Father's Day shopping at a discount.
