(NBC) Retail experts say that by July fourth, most people have already stocked up on summer goods, and stores are ready to clear shelves for the next sales event. 

Summer sporting goods, summer gear and apparel, especially swimwear, as well as much more are being deeply discounted this weekend.

Mandy walker at consumer reports compiled a list of the top deals.

That list even includes outdoor furniture.

"Retailers, they've been pushing this merchandise for a couple of months now. So, this is when they start to discount them. You can get a great deal on outdoor patio sets," said Walker.

She says car dealers have sales this weekend too, but waiting until right before arrival of next year's model will save you even more.
