Memorial Day Shopping Guide: Buy or Wait?

Memorial Day shopping is finally heating up after a long \”deal drought\” for consumers. According to Mark Schlotterbeck, the manager of midwestern chain Watson’s outdoor furniture store, Memorial Day weekend deals are some of the best of the year. Schlotterbeck states, \”Memorial Day is a huge event for us here. We are super busy.\” This year is promising in terms of stock availability after the previous two years’ limited inventory, resulting in big markdowns for consumers. Schlotterbeck states they have plenty of stock and can deliver spas to customers as soon as next week. For those looking for additional markdowns, scratch and dent products and floor models are also available.

Numerous retail websites are advertising Memorial Day sales for consumers, resulting in a significant change from the pandemic’s peak when stores couldn’t keep up with demand. Shopping expert Trae Bodge advises that the sweet spot for deals is typically the Friday before the holiday. However, Bodge cautions that retailers might offer early deals due to the competitive landscape this year.

Bodge highlights that Memorial Day is always reliable for sales on larger purchases like big and small appliances, beds and mattresses, and both indoor and outdoor furniture. However, individuals should hold off on buying new electronics. According to Bodge, electronics will see more exciting discounts during Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday in July sales. Additionally, laptops often see substantial markdowns during Back to School sales in July and August.

For everyday purchases, Bodge suggests stocking up on cleaning products or makeup during the sale. Lastly, Bodge advises shoppers to use the credit card that offers the most rewards or cash back.

Michael and Suzanne Kosla were buying a hot tub and stated that Memorial Day deals were unbeatable. \”They are amazing,\” said Suzanne. \”We are going to get something for sure.\” So, take advantage of these discounts and stock up on necessary items this Memorial Day weekend.
