Posted: Updated:

This Memorial Day weekend, local shoppers could've found great deals at places like car dealerships and even furniture stores.

Bret Coughlin, store manager at Ashley furniture, says their holiday discounts have led to an increase in business all weekend long.

“A lot of foot traffic, it's been great, now we're seeing a lot of people coming in, my staff is running around here, everybody is completely busy right," says Coughlin.

Coughlin says the Memorial Day weekend sale is one of the biggest of the year for Ashley Furniture.

He says the store has seen close to a 30% increase of customers walking through the door.

One customer, Michelle Schroeder, says she was able to shop around on the holiday since she had the work day off.

She says the extended three day weekend has made many stores noticeably busier.

“You always hear this is the best week of the year to find a good sale, the parking lot was full when we got here," says Schroeder.

According to, Memorial Day is one of the best times of the year to find discounts on items like mattresses ans summer clothing.
