Memorial Day means massive markdowns

(WTVG) - If you aren't a veteran you can still take advantage of deals on Memorial Day.

Deal News suggests the best things to buy now are appliances. Shoppers will find the biggest markdowns on refrigerators, dishwashers, and washing machines.

This is also a great time to replace your mattress.

If you are looking to update your wardrobe check the sales racks for spring fashions that are now on sale.

Shoppers should stay away from swimsuits, sandals, and other peak summer clothing items. Also, avoid patio furniture, BBQ grills and laptops.
