Best 2016 Memorial Day Sales

By  | 

The sales are on for Memorial Day weekend 2016.

We’re ready for the long Memorial Day Weekend 2016.  What’s on our list of to-dos? Well, of course a little BBQ and a little shopping.  Some of the Memorial Days sales this weekend offer great savings.  Others are just well, on-events, sale promotions with little or no real value, because the stuff the retailers are selling is just plain junk.  As time goes on, I’m getting more and more selective about the sales I want to spend time at or even look at. For example, it’s been ages since I saw great value at Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, Ross or most outlet stores. Most things there look like merchandise that designers license their names to, that have little or no resemblance to the designer’s main line.  For value on designer fashions, I prefer sales at  Barney’s Warehouse, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus Last Call or Saks Fifth Avenue.  For fast fashion, I go to ASOS or H&M.  Here’s The Recessionista’s short list of the Memorial Day sales we’ll be shopping this weekend.
