Finally, a three-day weekend the entire family can enjoy; Memorial Day weekend. Although the weekend is full of varying traditions for everyone, there are a few things that stay the same. Good weather, time-off, and a fun time with family and friends.
At Lee’s, we completely understand that sometimes the stress of planning and organizing a relaxing weekend can get overwhelming. However, with these lifehacks, your weekend should be stress-free from the start.
1- Lee’s Online:
Lee’s Online is a fantastic resource for you to get the most enjoyment from the good weather and fun times. You can order all of your groceries in a matter of minutes without ever leaving the comfort of your lawn chair. The best part about Lee’s Online is that if you are packing to go camping, road-tripping, or any type of travel, you can get your coolers ready to go while Lee’s Team Members shop and deliver your food. Unload your food directly into your coolers and trunk, and you can take all of the hassles out of those last minute details.
When placing a delivery order, keep in mind that delivery slots will close 4 hours ahead. You can also place your order up to 5 days in advance. So, if you are wanting to place an order for 3-5pm on Saturday you can place your order anywhere from Monday-Saturday at 11 am.
You can also opt for in-store pickup where your groceries can be neatly packed into your trunk for you.
#LeesLifehack: When picking up your Lee’s Online order, currently the best option for making the best use of your time is calling the store when you are on your way. This can give them a heads up to get your order ready. (You can either ask to talk to Lee’s Online Department or let the service desk know).

2.Flowers and Mums:
Many of our families traditions for Memorial Day include mums and memorial sprays. Lee’s talented floral designers have been creating beautiful Memorial Sprays for years, supplying only the best flowers that will last. These sprays are designed in store, so all of the orders are completely customizable. They are also available in an array of sizes and colors, allowing orders to fit into any budget. Place your orders early to ensure flowers will be ready for you when you need them.
Outdoor Plants by Rudy’s are a huge hit memorial weekend. With an entire weekend that can finally be spent outside, it’s a great time to work on beautifying your lawn. Geraniums, Hanging Baskets, Color Bowls and more are available during one of the final weeks of outdoor plants.
Mums. Mums. Mums! Lee’s floral departments go through hundreds of mums over Memorial Day weekend. These mums are ordered far in advance and care is taken to pick the perfect assortment to be planted. These mums are delivered twice a week, bringing a new variety in each shipment. Don’t put off buying your mums too late, fun varieties sell fast.
#LeesLifehack: something that Lee’s does is create fun, custom colors with the potted mums. Florists will spray white mums with flower-safe spray dye to create fun colors and patterns. If you have a design or color you would like, stop by the floral department and ask for a sprayed mum.
3- Traeger & Grilling:
Memorial Weekend is a great time to bring the family together and share in good food. However, cooking outside can keep heat out of the house and leave for an enjoyable afternoon spending time outside. Break your Traeger out of hibernation this Memorial Weekend.
Traegers are great for so much more than just grilling. Traegers are a smoker so they can cook delicious meats and meals to any level of smokey-ness. Did you know you can cook anything you cook in an oven in your Traeger? Just adjust the temperature and cook it all. You can cook cookies, pizza, bacon, casseroles, pasta, and more.
Lee’s and Lee’s Ace carry all of your Traeger needs. From Traeger grills to pellets, seasonings to utensils, and rubs to covers, Lee’s carries the entire line for you. Order your Traeger supplies through Lee’s online or come in for the best deals.
Lee’s carries the best meats in town, we have a butcher in-shop that ensures the highest and freshest quality meats every time. The Meat department makes all of the bratwursts in store with a special array of seasonings and spices. Try one of the many flavors or go with Lee’s Signature hamburger patties for a family favorite. Don’t forget about the delicious steaks, chicken, seafood and more, all grill friendly.
The bakery also supplies amazing made-from-scratch buns. Pair one with a delicious brat from the meat department to be the talk of the town. Don’t forget to swing by the deli department and grab some delicious salads for your dinner. From party subs to potato salad, Lee’s deli can help you create the perfect lunch for your family and friends.
Memorial Weekend is also a great weekend to take advantage of great sales on soda and chips!
5- Outdoor Supplies:
This is one of the first good weeks of spending lengthy outdoor time, and there is a chance you may have lost some of your outdoor essentials. Not to worry, Lee’s carries them all. You can get sunscreen, aloe, fire pits, tents, umbrellas, chairs, coolers, roasting sticks, mosquito repellent and more.
There are also fun things for your kids available. You can get bubbles, kids toys, shovels, bug nets and containers, and various other things to entertain your kids for hours.
Lee’s is your one-stop-shop for Memorial Day shopping! And the great thing is with Lee’s Online, you don’t even have to “stop”!
