End of summer clearance is just as big as any other seasonal sale event and a very important day is Labor Day when retailers are organizing clearance events to mark the end of summer. This is good news because sale events can take a lot of the end of summer bummer off people.
With summer ending, it’s school time again for many and that means savings on many items even for people who don’t have kids. This is one of the best times of year to purchase office supplies with incredibly low prices. Let’s see what else you can save with this year Labor Day Sales & Deals.
Clearance summer clothing
Retailers trying to clear aisles and make space for next season clothing offer savings on summer apparel of up to 60 percent off and more on select items.
A lot of summer clothing is good to wear well into the autumn months and some you can even wear as layer in the winter months. The selection is always bigger before Labor Day, but the discounts get bigger and bigger shortly after as we move closer to the colder time of year.
Savings across departments at big box stores
Retailers known to discount items across departments around Labor Day are big-box the likes of Walmart and Target where sale usually includes office supplies and school items, summer clothing, but also bedroom furniture, foam mattresses, coffee makers, curtains, beach towels, summer drinkware and so much more.
Summer clearance varies based on what local stores have in stock and you can always check price and stock levels via third party websites.
Home goods in malls and dedicated shops
Labor Day is paid day off for many, but Mall of America is still open on Monday, although the holiday could affect regular store hours. If you’d rather be scouring the malls Monday morning than sleeping in, home goods are likely to sell cheaper at retailers such as Marshalls and Macy’s as well as dedicated shops.
Appliance discounts at Home Depot and Lowe’s
Because new appliances are expected to hit the market in September and retailers have to make room for those, they are selling older items cheaper by at least 20 percent now through Labor Day, but also throughout the month.
Home Depot and Lowe’s are among the industry retailers that you can expect appliance discounts from, both online and in stores.
Mattresses cheaper by as much as 50%
Ask anyone savvy and they’ll tell you springtime is the best time to purchase a mattress. However, Labor Day is the perfect opportunity for retailers to get rid of stock and last year for Labor Day select mattresses got 50% cheaper, which is about as good as springtime sale.
If you can get your hands on a coupon, that will maximize your savings further. One retailer to be checking out now is Sears that offers other benefits with a mattress purchase such as free shipping, up to $100 in reward points or free box spring.
And because it’s summer’s end, outdoor furniture gets seriously marked down with savings increasing into fall. If you’re celebrating Labor Day with a barbecue or traveling, that can get expensive, which is why reducing other costs for items you need either now or in the future can lessen what you spend on celebrating Labor Day.
