The second federal holiday of the year celebrates the iconic civil rights hero, Martin Luther King Jr., who was sadly assassinated on April 4, 1968. Since 1983, we’ve been celebrating his legacy on the third Monday in January each year. Those who plan to be out and about on this day may be interested to know what MLK Day deals and freebies will be available. Here are some deals you can snag on Monday.
