Check the Retail Store Discounts/Sales blog category to keep up with the latest sale news. Every Thursday I post a Weekend Deals list, with local and national discounts.

The scoop on Craigslist, book sales, yard sales, and thrift/consignment stores all over town
I try to cover as many of the local bargain highlights as possible, but it’s not possible to do justice to every Richmond business. The best way to keep up with shopping deals is to hear about them directly from the businesses, and you can do that by signing up for their email lists, liking them on Facebook, etc. Try to think of the stores that you visit at least every month or two, and check their websites for links to join mailing lists and to their social media accounts.
For some ideas to get you started, head over to Richmond Bargains Facebook page and look in the left column for “Likes.” Click on the option to “See All” and you’ll pull up a list of the various Richmond pages I’ve liked. Likewise, if you use Twitter, I’ve created a list called “rva-biz-deals” where I pull together tweets from Richmond businesses that use Twitter to post about deals on a regular basis.
