THE BRONX - Many Bronx residents made the most of their Labor Day by shopping for the best summer deals before the season ends.

Shoppers told News 12 The Bronx that the sales included half-price appliances and school supplies. They say they took advantage of the sales by knowing about them ahead of time, and planning out their purchases.

One shopper said they thought it would be a smart idea to come out to the shops while others are busy at home barbecuing.
