Memorial Day 2017: Macy’s, Best Buy, Kohls and other deals  and sales

Memorial Day, the day set aside to honor those who died in military service to the United States, is Monday.

The practice of taking a day to honor the war dead began after the Civil War. More than 100 years later, “Decoration Day” became an official federal holiday known as Memorial Day in 1971.

The day also marks the unofficial start of summer, and retailers are offering those first summer sales.
