ATLANTA -- July may be sweltering hot, but retailers need to move merchandise because back to school items are already arriving.
That means clothing sales abound! Saks Fifth Avenue is having a Fourth of July sale with apparel and accessories marked down as much as 70 percent.
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is also one of the biggest. It starts Friday, July 20th.
The week after Independence Day is a great time to hit the clearance sales for red, white and blue party supplies, clothing and picnic items. Look for markdowns of 75 percent starting anywhere between three and seven days after the holiday at drug stores and party stores.
At Target, Fourth of July decorations go all the way to 90 percent off. Target's semi annual toy clearance is also in July. It is a great time to get some early holiday shopping in.
There is a smart phone app that tracks sales in your area. It's called salelocator.com and it can be handy to use, though it doesn't usually have all the clearance sales.
