Best Shopping Deals in September
Hooray, its September! If you are a thrifty shopper, you’ve been waiting for summer to be over so that you could start saving big again. According to Time Magazine, retailers will start working harder this month to get shoppers back into their stores. Here’s some of the deals to look out for.
Stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s won’t want to hold on to these bulky items until next spring. You’ll be able to get great discounts on furniture pieces, maybe even complete sets. Even stores that sell outdoor furniture year-round will have sales in September to make space for next year’s models. Be on the look out for grill deals now, too.
April 28, 2019 is the first day of National Public Lands Day. In celebration, admission to all National Parks is absolutely FREE! For a list of all the National Park Service’s free admission days, read our earlier blog post.
Bushes and perennials will likely be marked down as garden centers prepare to close for the cooler months. Wait for October if you’re wanting mums. If you live in Leesburg, don’t’ forget to stop into the Academies of Loudoun Fall Plant Sale for some great deals.
There’s no holiday in September that gets people buying jewelry. As a result, sales tend to slump this month. Shoppers will see lower prices and maybe able to negotiate better deals.
Remember the rule of supply and demand? Who’s looking for Citronella candles and sunscreen once the weather starts to get cooler? As school starts back up, be on the look out for everything summer to be marked down. Sun hats, pool toys, picnic gear, you name it, it’ll be marked down. The bigger the item, the more likely it will be clearanced out to make room for autumn items.
And other in-season produce will be at their lowest prices when Loudoun’s local farmers are loaded with crates of apples, cider, beets, cabbage, carrots, corn, cucumbers, eggplants, garlic, green beans, kohlrabi, lettuce, melons, onions, peppers, potatoes, squash, and tomatoes should be at the market in September along with meats, eggs and breads.
