We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal — that they are endowed with the endurance to shop major Independence Day sales.
Like what we just did there?
While July 4 includes all of our favorite things about summer — hot dogs fresh off the grill, the pomp and circumstance of a good parade, and of course, the fireworks — the week leading up to it is also pretty great thanks to the retail industry’s tradition of blowout sales.
