While we’ve technically got until the solstice to call it "summer," Labor Day weekend is widely observed as your last unofficial chance for getting in that picnic, barbecue, or beach trip before September really gets underway. But it’s also good for something else — namely, sweet deals. Pretty much every major retailer gets in on the sales frenzy, as do a number of indie brands. They’re not waiting ‘til the weekend, either, with a bunch of discounts live since last week.
We’ve pulled together the best of them below. This year there’s as much spring/summer 2017 stuff in the mix as there are discounts on new fall items, so take your pick. We'’e also got the scoop on several awesome deals to come, and we’ll be updating this page every morning as new sales go live. So make sure you check back often!
