Columbus Day Sales 2020: 13 Tech, Furniture, and Kitchenware Deals To Shop This Weekend

Columbus Day sales, unlike Labor Day sales or even Fourth of July sales, aren’t really a thing. If you consider it for a second—and remind yourself that Christopher Columbus was a monster who didn’t discover anything—you realize Columbus Day shouldn’t really even be a holiday. This year’s “holiday,” which we will now only refer to as Indigenous Peoples Day, is even stranger, thanks to its proximity to a delayed Amazon Prime Day. The mega-retailer will flex its muscle with an onslaught of discounts literally the day after the occasion. Based on our initial scans, it seems like most of the other tech and home goods retailers are holding their sale cards close to the chest, waiting to unleash their best deals until Prime Day begins in earnest. But for now, there’s still some decent price drops available on a range of gear, especially home tech and furniture upgrades. Here’s some

Arlington shop owners celebrate this street’s renovation

As Hershey Jones set up his namesake restaurant in downtown Arlington in late 2019, Abram Street was undergoing a facelift of its own.

The arterial roadway, running from downtown to the Grand Prairie city limits, had been under some form of construction since 2014. Workers roped off lanes to install new drainage or sewer pipes or reduced lanes to make space for wider sidewalks or lighting. For Jones’ first several months running Hershey’s Palace at 513 E. Abram St., construction complicated parking and downtown.

“It raised a flag,” he said, “but I saw that it was further completed than from the time that I did what I had to do, that it wouldn’t affect me as much.”

Now, as the city puts the finishing touches on the project, Jones is seeing more people walk around — and passersby are seeing more of the businesses that line the street.

Big Mike’s Fat Kitchen is set to open a shop in Nottingham selling mouth-watering cheesecakes

The name’s Big Mike – and he’s about to open a ‘fat kitchen’ in Nottingham selling delicious cheesecakes.

But if it hadn’t been for lockdown it might never have been on the cards.

Mike Jones would probably still be working as a service adviser for Audi – a job he’d been in for a year – but being furloughed gave him the opportunity to spend more time in the kitchen of his new home.

And the result has been Cheesecakes by Big Mike’s Fat Kitchen – mouth-watering desserts in a variety of flavours.

“I’ve always been called Mikey, ever since school but when I started at Audi there was another Mike in the workshop, a little bloke, so they referred to me as Big Mike,” said the 6ft 3in cheesecake supremo, who in three months has sold more than 500.

After doing a roaring trade through a home delivery service,

You’re spending a lot more time at home. And you’ve reached the point where you can’t turn a blind eye anymore. It’s time to renovate the bathroom. Or the kitchen. Or maybe both.

But where do you begin? There are a hundred decisions to be made. How do you find contractors you can trust? How do you choose from the seemingly endless options for tile, flooring, fixtures and colors—and where will you find the time to hunt them down?
