Easter 2018 Sales Are Here: Here Are 7 Stores You'll Want To Watch This Weekend

Whether you're looking for last-minute Easter gifts or decor, or want to stock up on summer clothing and gear, this weekend's Easter sales won't disappoint. Big retailers like Target, Macy's, and Kohl's are offering amazing prices on merchandise in a wide variety of categories, while niche brands like Pier 1, Build-A-Bear, and Hobby Lobby have special deals on Easter stuff. If you're itching to get active outside, check out the seasonal sales from Dick's Sporting Goods.

There's sure to be something for everyone from one of these seven retailers this weekend, so keep refreshing their websites on your internet browser for the latest deals. Online shopping can be a welcome distraction from the hustle and bustle of holiday gatherings. Of course, you don't need to go online to find post-holiday sales on Easter candy and merchandise at your local drugstore or grocery store. It's hard to believe that any of us will be in the mood for more sweets come Monday, but you can always freeze a chocolate bunny or two for next year's Easter baskets (something I may or may not have done last year). Whatever you're in the market for, we wish you a Happy Easter and good luck with all the sales out there!
