When it comes to finding the best sales, half the battle is simply knowing where to start. But if your holiday weekend plans doesn't involve sale-hunting, trust me when I say you, and your wallet, are really missing out. This year's Easter weekend sales events can snag you savings anywhere from 10, to as much as 80 percent off! Again, it all depends on where you look. And let's not forget about the much-anticipated after-Easter sales, too, because at nearly 90 percent off, they're worth the wait. (Hello, chocolate bunnies and chocolate eggs and, um, did I mention chocolate?)
According to The National Retail Federation, Americans were predicted to spend an estimated record of $18.4 billion last Easter, which was up six percent from the previous 2015 forecast. Yes, you can save some big money on food and candy, of course, but let's not forget about clothing, gifts, flowers, and greeting cards, too. There's a seemingly never-ending list of items on sale during this particular holiday weekend, so Easter isn't just about hiding eggs and collecting special baskets, my friends. Nope, it's also about saving some money.
So whether you're in need of a new spring wardrobe to silently summon some warmer weather, or a new coffee maker to accommodate that horrendous Daylight Savings fatigue, stores across the country have you covered.
