Independence Day. Though most equate it with barbecues and fireworks, one thing that comes to mind for me are blowout sales. As with many holidays, 4th of July 2017 sales can offer some real steals on regularly high priced items. From appliances to mattresses, there's literally a deal for you to find everywhere during July 4th weekend.
Though you won't usually find me shopping much during the weekend, seeing which stores are having sales this year have made me reconsider carving out some time to hit the mall and stock up on must-need items. I actually think shopping during the summer holidays are the best time to start your Christmas shopping, because you can get things to use for next spring or summer. I also think it's a good time to stock up on your fall and winter wear since they will be largely marked down from the previous season. Similarly, 4th of July sales are also a great time to find a few things for the back to school season.
With all of these valid reasons to hit the stores during 4th of July weekend, knowing where to shop is the next step. If you need a little guidance on where to start for the best sales, here are 13 stores with some pretty solid 4th of July 2017 sales.
