National Bargain Hunting Week
August 6th - August 12th, 2018
National Bargain Hunting Week will be celebrated August 6-12, 2018, having made its debut in 1996. The celebration was founded by Debbie Keri-Brown, author of the books, Bargain Hunting In Central Ohio and Bargain Hunting In Columbus. Although the books are now out of print, the celebration will continue yearly to encourage the thrill of the hunt for bargains and the triumph of the find. Consumers are more value conscious today than ever before as a result of the current economic situation in this country. Whether rummaging through boxes at a flea market, the clearance rack of a department store or the shelves at an off-price business, the hunt for the bargain can be just as exciting as the item which is discovered.

The celebration is recognized the first Monday through the following Sunday in August every year, and coincides with National Smile Week which was developed by Heloise of the Hints From Heloise newspaper column. Although the two celebrations are not affiliated, the date was chosen specifically to overlap because bargain hunting is something to smile about. National Bargain Hunting Week has been listed in the book, Chase's Annual Events continuously since its inception in 1996.
