Summer is coming to an end but the cooler weather heralds the beginning of some of the best sales of the year. First up: Labor Day weekend’s big bargains.
Ashley Lutz of the website Business Insider says shoppers should be on the lookout for washers and dryers, bicycles, mattresses, and clothing that will take people out of the summer and into fall and winter.
Lutz explained why washers and dryers and vacuum cleaners tend to be available at such good prices this year, saying: "A lot of retailers are clearing out their merchandise and they're going to start offering the new models for the holidays ... so they want to clear out that merchandise now to make way for the new models."
Here's a list of some of the weekend's sales:
Abercrombie & Fitch is offering everything in stores and online for up to 60 percent off. They’ll also have jeans for $39.
Shop Gap.com for up to 40 percent off select items today and tomorrow, and get 40 percent off your entire in-store and online purchases through Tuesday. Online shoppers must use the code DAY.
Banana Republic is offering discounts of up to 40 percent off through Tuesday.
The sales at Lowe’s include the offer of a Maytag dryer for about $380. That’s nearly $170 off the regular price.
