It may not be a black Friday, but the weekend is a big weekend for sales.
Presidents weekend is the first sales opportunity of the New Year, according to Diane McCrohan, Associate Professor at the College of Business at Johnson & Wales University.
The February holidays are the perfect time to buy home furnishings, such as mattresses and appliances, at a great price. You can also find deals on winter clothes and electronics, says McCrohan.
