Labor Day weekend is a great time to take advantage of sales, and this year, Big Lots is having a massive sale you don’t want to miss.

Big Lots is offering up to 20% off coolers, up to 75% off outdoor furniture and additional deals on home decor. As the summer winds down, it is an excellent occasion to stock up on items you’ll want for next summer.

Make note, however, that Big Lots’ sale ends Aug. 28 and does not go through Labor Day weekend. So you’ll need to head there as soon as possible to score these deals! Many of the items are already out of stock online, but you can see if they’re in a store near you by using your zip code to search on Big Lots’ website.

Take a look at just some of the items included in the Big Lots Labor Day sale:
