Presidents Day Deals at Best Buy, Target, Home Depot and More

Today is Presidents Day, or Washington's Birthday, and major retailers are celebrating by offering deals and discounts on tech, appliances, furniture and more.

Presidents Day is held in the U.S. each year on the third Monday of February. Before 1971, the federal holiday was on February 22, George Washington's birthday.

Some states observe the day as Washington's Birthday, while others call it Presidents Day. Certain states also celebrate Abraham Lincoln or Thomas Jefferson on this day.

Many federal workers will have the day off and some federal services will be unavailable. However, retail businesses will be open, with many stores hosting special sales.

We are all spending more time at home because of the pandemic, so this is a great time to make some improvements. According to a survey commissioned by Lowe's, 55 percent of consumers have bigger plans for their homes in 2021.

So why not make the most of this year's Presidents Day sales and save on furniture and appliances at retailers such as Best Buy, Target and Lowe's?
