REHOBOTH, Del. -- When it's Labor Day, a trip to the mall is on the list for many who want to grab the last bargains of the summer season.
Researchers say there are benefits to taking advantage of Labor Day sale offers, even though it isn't the most popular shopping event of the year.
Retail experts say do buy things such as summer clothes and new cars since stores are trying to make room for new inventory.
On the flip side, experts say hold off on buying toys, electronics and fall clothing since those prices drop dramatically drop near the end of the year.
Some shoppers tell us they're hoping to find a few good deals in Rehoboth this Labor Day weekend.
"Well I'm actually looking for a pageant gown so we're heading down to Fabulous Dress to check out some gowns," said Destiny Drummond of Lincoln who is competing in a Miss Delaware pageant this year.
"I thought I'd come to the outlets and get my wife just a small gift to say thanks for the stuff that's she's done all year," said Jim Shockley of Aston, Pa. while out shopping with his three daughters.
Retail experts also say that airline tickets, outdoor sports gear and patio furniture are among the items that have the best deals during the Labor Day holiday weekend.
