Memorial Day weekend is often the first weekend that really feels like summer. Many people may be dusting off the grill for the first time in the season, hosing down the patio furniture, or realizing they need to purchase some. Whether you’re just ready to have a Memorial Day gathering or gearing up for summer leisure, Target has you covered for all the basics.
Here are 12 things you should buy at Target for Memorial Day weekend (and beyond) — some of which also happen to be on sale.
