Hot Buys After Labor Day!

September 4, 2018

Now that Labor Day is behind us, a look at September sales reveals plenty of hot buys after the holiday on everything from grills and appliances to patio furniture and mattresses. Check out some of the great deals you can take advantage of this month in brick-and-mortar stores and online, as retailers get ready to stock their winter merchandise!


After Labor Day is the best time of the year to shop for appliances as retailers gear up for end of the year by stocking up on new merchandise and dropping prices on older models to clear stock. Think about it – why buy a newer model if all things being equal – and older model is available for less? Home Depot, just off of Smoky Hill west of Southshore, is offering up to 40 percent off on some of their appliances through September 12, and Lowe’s has similar deals. It doesn’t matter if you’re shopping for a refrigerator, a stove or a KitchenAid mixer – if you’re ready to buy, you can get a great deal on a number of appliances after Labor Day!


Once it starts snowing in Colorado, people stop buying grills! This means retailers are now trying to sell off their summer stock with great deals that will continue through early fall. Charcoal grills are cheaper but when you add up charcoal costs per cookout ($5) versus the price of propane per grilled meal (20 cents) it may pay to spend more up front on a gas grill. And again, your local home improvement stores are offering post-Labor Day savings on both. And if you’ve always wanted an outdoor stainless-steel griddle, now’s the time to pick one up for 25 percent off through Academy Sports!


According to Money Magazine, Labor Day is the beginning of mattress sale season but getting the best deal can be challenging since manufacturers will often make the same mattress model for different stores under different names. One deal they flagged is a queen-size, non-traditional foam mattress from Target on sale right now.

Nectar, an online mattress store that also sells foam mattresses (have you tried sleeping on foam? They promise “the best sleep of your life”!) at a discount now through mid-September. Check out the savings and features of the “bed of your dreams”!

Patio Furniture

Summer’s pretty much over and now’s the time to save on outdoor and patio furniture. From umbrellas that tilt and crank, to wicker patio sets and cushions, you can score big savings at Walmart – located right down the street off of Aurora Parkway near Southlands — on clearance patio and outdoor furniture. You’ll see big markdowns on Adirondack chairs, hammocks, porch swings – you name it – to enjoy briefly now and all next year and beyond!

Camping Gear

Camping season is drawing to a close for the recreational campers who like their nighttime temps above 50 and enjoy the great outdoors in fair weather! Cabela’s in Lone Tree, about 30 minutes from Southshore is offering great deals on camping gear for the intrepid to camp into the winter, or for the rest of us, summer of 2019!

Don’t Buy These!

CBS News warned against buying these five things during the month of September: fall clothing, TVs, video games, toys, and most electronics. The reason? Because better deals are coming during the holidays, in particular, Black Friday and Cyber Monday!

Summer’s (Almost) Over in Southshore!

The pool may have closed in the master-planned community of Southshore but you can still enjoy the Lakehouse activities and make your own fun with games on the Lakehouse lawn. If you’re not a homeowner here, yet, explore the amazing options from Toll Brothers, Richmond American Homes or Century Communities. You’ll want to see all the models, in ranch and two-story designs, priced between the upper $300s and the $700s.
