Hints for Labor Day weekend deals

Unofficial end of summer can mean big sales

TAMPA - The promotional fliers for store sales are flooding newspapers, but there are some deals that tend to be better than others over the Labor Day weekend.

DealNews.com encourages consumers to look to outdoor furniture and grills for deals as well as summer apparel. Stores often need to clear their summer inventory to make room for items for the new season.

Prices are often slashed for appliances and indoor furniture, too, including mattresses.

Shopper Ruthie Smith saved money Friday when she bought a coffee table at a Hillsborough County furniture store.

"I think it was like 70 bucks off," Smith said.
