Spring fashion sales

Major players on Memorial Day weekend are department stores like Macy’s, JCPenney and Dillard’s.
Camping equipment and outdoor sales
Road trips and outdoor adventures are always a Memorial Day tradition. We’re sure that plenty of families plan these vacations like it’s their summertime staple. Moreover, road trips and camping might just be a more realistic option, considering the pandemic.
That being said, keep your eyes open for promo codes on cycling, camping gear, and golf clubs. Don’t pump the brakes on a new bike just yet, because retailers traditionally offer big discounts on bikes, camping equipment and hiking gear during Memorial Day. This one being a long weekend is a bonus in itself.
Here’s what you shouldn’t buy this weekend
Memorial Day weekend is not great for electronics like laptops and tablets. You will barely witness a modest markdown on their price tags. It’s best to wait until the back-to-school season in July for these items to go on sale.
It’s not really a good time to get a new air conditioner, a grill, and plants, they are all at season-high prices.
While you’re going gaga over sales and shopping, ensure to commemorate men and women who served our country in the past. Apart from that, have a great time with the kids and the family!”
