Even though CheapoLife.com is based in the U.S., I have noticed we have quite a few readers in Canada. Our neighbors in the Great White North will be celebrating Victoria Day 2013 on Monday, May 20. Victoria Day is a Canadian public holiday. It is similar to Memorial Day here in the States in that it is part of a long weekend which signifies the beginning of summer. Also like Memorial Day, Canada’s Victoria Day is a great time for sales, deals, and special promotional offers at stores, restaurants, and shopping malls.
Best Buy Canada, Sears Canada, Home Depot Canada, Eaton’s, Future Shop, Jacob, and many other big box stores as well as smaller merchants hold Victoria Day Sales or Long Weekend Sales. Most stores are open regular hours on this day although some retailers, malls, and restaurants have extended hours of operation on Victoria Day. Be sure to check with your favorite merchants for their specific hours and offerings before heading out for the Long Weekend Sales and Victoria Day Sales: May 18-19-20, 2013. Happy shopping, Canada!
