GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Labor Day is know as the unofficial end of summer. But for shoppers, it’s a day of deals and steals. We racked up the do’s and don’ts for holiday shopping.
Don’t start your fall apparel shopping. Stores like to keep their prices high as people pack away summer whites. Instead, buy summer clothes on sale. With eastern North Carolina’s weather, you can wear them for another month, and then you’ve already started next year’s wardrobe.
“Hold the fire” on gas grills. There are plenty of grills on sale as we bid farewell to summer, but holding off a few more weeks could mean saving 20-25%.
For televisions, electronics, and children’s toys, you’ll see the biggest drop in prices closer to the holiday season. However, if you’re looking for any deals on electronics, try back to school electronics.
School supplies are always a great option for Labor Day shopping. Most schools are already back in session, meaning stores want to clear off their back to school shelves.
Stay away from air-fare. Promotions promise cheap air-fare when purchased Labor Day Weekend, but wait until October to save big.
