Independence Day, or the Fourth of July, is the day when the USA, or United States of America, declared its independence from Great Britain. The year was 1776, and of course, the day over 200 years ago is just as important to the people of America as it was then. 

The National Day of The US is a federal holiday and a time for barbeques, parties and celebration. This being America, it is also a time for shop sales. The stores of America across the country will be offering bargains and deals to Summer shoppers. The 4th of July is just one day in the Summer Sales that will spread throughout June and July.
