2 Summer Sales


Christmas in July is centered around gatherings and entertainment, but let’s face it: We love the shopping. You don’t have to wait for Labor Day to take advantage of markdowns and clearance events, as there are dozens of summer sales happening now.

As retailers are making room for fall inventory, August is the time of year to stock up on summer clothing and swimwear (it’s still beach season, folks), says U.S. News & World Report. It’s also the right time to beat the back-to-school rush and start picking up supplies likes notebooks, lunch boxes and laptops.

Here are a few stores holding mid-summer sales and specials:
