In elementary school, you probably learned a lot about Christopher Columbus. He sailed the ocean blue in 1492 and had three ships — the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria.

It was all just part of the curriculum.

Then, adulthood hit — and you might have started viewing Columbus in a completely different way. These days, he’s not celebrated quite as much for “discovering” the New World. Instead, he’s been put under the spotlight for the way he treated indigenous people.  Records show he was violent and even introduced a host of diseases. Those facts aren’t mentioned quite as often in school. So even though he changed history, people rightfully believe that there are far better people out there to celebrate.

That’s why Indigenous Peoples Day was created, which overlaps with Columbus Day. It celebrates Native Americans and recognizes that they were oppressed. And that might be why certain retailers are starting to drop the phrase “Columbus Day Sale.” It’s great, because it means the world is progressing — and we can still celebrate the good parts of history with a full online cart.

This Monday, October 14, you can read up on both Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples Day and also get some great discounts in the meantime. Plenty of stores are offering up some great deals. And if you’re lucky enough to have the day off from work, even better — you have more time to shop online.

Here are 15 stores that are celebrating the weekend holiday by dropping some incredible discounts.



Are you in the market for new furniture? Then you might want to check out AllModern. The retailer is offering up to 65% off all weekend long. Even better, when you use the code GOBOLD at checkout, you’ll get an additional 15% off. This particular desk, once $214.38, is currently 58% off if you snag it now.

Amazon is the perfect place to shop if you need … anything, really. It’s even better when you have Prime because your purchase will arrive right at your doorstep within days. That said, the online retailer’s Columbus Day sales may be a little rough on your wallet. Amazon is offering sales in its Gold Box. That means you’ll want to keep your eye out for lightning deals. One of those deals? These glass prep containers, which are perfect for everything related to meal prep.

Joss & Main isn’t calling its sale a Columbus Day sale — the retailer refers to it as the Fall Clearance. Regardless of the name, the deals are still fantastic. Tons of furniture and home decor are up to 75% off.  This versatile corner bookshelf is included in the sale at 19% off the regular cost.

Be honest. You were going to go to Target regardless of the sales being offered. But still, it’s good to know beforehand that you can save up to 25% on home items and 15% on items for your bed and bathroom. More deals will likely be released through the Cartwheel app. It sounds like it may be the perfect time to bulk up your fall candle collection.

Wayfair’s calling its sale the Fall Refresh Sale. For a limited time, you can get plenty of items for up to 70% off. It’s also a great time to buy bedroom furniture, as Wayfair is pricing items at $99.99 and above. But if you’re good with furniture, have no fear. There are still plenty of items to put in your cart, like this very cool (and very in-season) canvas print.
