The Lowe’s Memorial Day Sale is a great opportunity to grab a new grill, stock up on soil and mulch, and get ready to kick off summer. And we’re here to help you navigate to the very best Lowe’s deals.

With that in mind, I looked into three years of Lowe’s sale data, and the history has a lot to teach us when we’re looking to score the best deals.

Find everything you need to know below to get the most out of the Memorial Day sale at Lowe’s, starting with when we’re expecting to see the next sale.


1. Lowe’s Memorial Day Sale 2023 will probably start on Thursday, May 18.

Each year going back to 2019, Lowe’s has kicked off their Memorial Day sale two Thursdays before Memorial Day. That makes sense when you consider that Lowe’s always kicks off new weekly sales on Thursdays. In 2022 the sale began on May 19 and lasted through June 1.

For this reason, in 2023 I predict the sale will start on Thursday, May 18.


2. Lowe’s Memorial Day Sale will run for two weeks.
