The holiday shopping season may be over, but for shoppers with an extra day off this weekend, there are still plenty of deals to be found. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is this Monday, a federal holiday dedicated to the birthday of the civil rights leader.

Many sales aren't marketed by retailers as MLK-specific, rather, the focus is on the long weekend that draws extra shoppers, so keep an eye out for deals even if they aren't billed as new. Many sales from the new year continue, from clothing to home goods.

Here are some of the best sales happening this weekend.


Between now and Jan.15, Bloomingdale's is offering between 20 and 50 percent off regular-price items, and 60 to 75 percent off sale items. Bloomingdale's home goods is also running steep discounts on towels, bedding and appliances.


Stock up on winter clothes that retailers want to push out before the end of the season. Gap is offering up to 75 percent off winter items until Jan. 15, both online and in-store.

Crate & Barrel

Take 20 percent off all bedding and bath, until Jan. 15.

If you're in the market for a new mattress, you could score a new Fitbit at the same time if you buy this weekend. Mattress Firm is offering a free AltaHR or Charge 2 Fitbit (valued at $129-149) with the purchase of a $799+ mattress.
