What to Know About Memorial Day Sales

You'll find discounts on seasonal items. But if you can hold out until the end of the summer, you'll get better deals.

Memorial Day is right around the corner, and that means sales, sales, sales. Most markdowns will be on summer apparel, lawn and garden items, and outdoor gear. Plus, you'll find some sales on a few non-seasonal items.

For sales on camping and outdoor gear and apparel, you'll find discounts of up to 60% at Backcountry.com, 30% off at REI through May 30 and markdowns at Gander Mountain.
