Don’t forget: Monday, January 19th is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. “MLK Day” is a national holiday as well as a day off from work for some and a day off of school for most kids. It is also a big shopping day, as is the entire Martin Luther King Weekend which precedes the holiday.
Most stores, restaurants, and shopping malls will be open with regular hours of operation on MLK Day. Expect to find lots of sales and special promotions at most retail outlets. Judging from the deals offered in previous years, Martin Luther King Weekend seems to be a good time to buy cars, appliances, electronics, computers, smartphones, and furniture. Again, most merchants will have their stores open normal hours on January 19 for your shopping convenience.
