Buying a Grill for Memorial Day Weekend? Here's What You Need to Know
Get ready to grill all summer long!
Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, which means next weekend signals the unofficial start to summer — and, most importantly, the start to grilling season.
Many retailers start offering discounts on grills ahead of Memorial Day weekend, some even starting as early as January. According to Insider, retailers are trying to get rid of old models before new grills launch later in the spring. So, if you see a really good deal before the summer really starts, they recommend snagging one while you can. Don't make the mistake of waiting too long — you'll have fewer models to choose from as demand gets higher.
Here are some retailers that currently have great deals on grills, grilling accessories, and grill-ready meat and seafood. Start shopping now so you're ready to barbecue next weekend!
