Some people like getting away for President’s Day weekend. But others prefer to stay local, and shop for bargains.
“Spring is coming, and it’s income tax time,” said Jeff Hoffman of Longmeadow. “People are out looking for deals.”
Raymour and Flannigan in West Springfield saw a steady flow of customers Saturday and Sunday. All of their furniture is up to 23 percent off through President’s Day, which amounts to big savings.
“When one of our guests comes in and they like the style, the color, and it fits into their home, they want to take advantage of that 23 percent discount, said Chris Roy, Store Manager of Raymour & Flannigan in West Springfield. “It’s huge.”
Car dealerships like Balise Nissan in West Springfield are also offering big markdowns this weekend. Balise Nissan said they sold a lot of vehicles Saturday and Sunday.
“Most people do it now because it’s a good time to buy and it makes sense because spring is coming around, travel season is coming back in the spring and summer months, so people want to get a new vehicle or a good pre-owned vehicle,” said Michael Ramdath, Sales Consultant at Balise Nissan.
And you don’t even have to leave your house to take advantage of the big sales this weekend. Balise Nissan and Raymour and Flannigan offer their President’s Day weekend sales online.
