Every Home Appliance (HA) retailer knows that people love a good deal. As a result, pitching HA special savings events around certain holiday periods has become the norm to catch the eyes (and dollars) of the everyday consumer. One recent example of this is Labor Day. This longstanding federal holiday originated in the early 1900’s as a way to honor and recognize the achievements of American workers. While observed annually on the first Monday of September, retailers typically extend HA special sales and promotions over the span of three weeks. This period usually begins towards the end of August and ends in mid September.
