Welcome to our July 4, 2022 sales live blog. It’s Monday, and Yahoo’s shopping editors will help you find the most strategic products to invest in. We’ll update here throughout the day as we find better deals. This July 4 holiday is a strategic time to save: Currently, major retailers are stocked with a cumulative excess of $45 billion in inventory ordered at the height of the pandemic. People aren’t buying as much due to inflation, but stores still have to sell their excess stock. That’s good news for consumers, experts tell us, because it means you can reap some serious savings on July 4th.
