How to shop Memorial Day appliance sales
In the past, consumers visited big box retailers to shop for appliances — both during sale events like Memorial Day and otherwise. This year, it seems that most purchases will take place online given ongoing stay-at-home orders. Check brand and retailer sites to determine the best sales for you. Last year, for instance, JC Penney announced it would no longer sell appliances. This year, the company faces new financial struggles, meaning it might not be the best source from which to buy an appliance, a long-term investment.
