Victoria Day Special Sales Deals Store Hours

December 15, 2022

Even though Special Sales ‘N Deals is based in the U.S., I have noticed we have quite a few readers in Canada! Our neighbors in the Great White North will be celebrating Victoria Day 2023 on Monday, May 22. Victoria Day is a Canadian public holiday. It is similar to Memorial Day here in the States in that it is part of a long weekend which signifies the beginning of summer. Also like Memorial Day, Canada’s Victoria Day is a great time for sales, deals, and special promotional offers at stores, restaurants, and shopping malls.

Best Buy Canada, Sears Canada, Home Depot Canada, RONA, Eaton’s, Future Shop, Jacob, and many other big box stores as well as smaller merchants hold Victoria Day Sales or Long Weekend Sales. Most stores are open although some retailers, malls, and restaurants remain closed or run shortened holiday schedules on Victoria Day. Be sure to check with your favorite merchants for their specific hours and offerings before heading out for the Long Weekend Sales and Victoria Day Sales: May 20-21-22, 2023.
