Sears Canada has a large summer clearance going on and if you've been sitting on your deck or patio with the sun blasting on you and wish you had a way to cover up, Sears has the deal for you. Get the wholeHome/MD 9' round patio umbrella with a regular price of $99.99, now for $53.95.
Yesterday I was sitting on my deck and was very grateful for the umbrella I had because it was a cooker here in Ontario. I had sat in the sun at ribfest, sweating profusely and was glad to come home and sit in the shade and read. I spent quite a bit of money on my umbrella when I bought it last spring because I didn't see any deals like this out there.
There are two colours left in this umbrella - yellow and hummus sand. Yellow is a gorgeous, bright colour that will liven up any outdoor space. Hummus sand is the opposite and I would say it is basically beige. Whatever your taste - lively or subdued - one of these umbrellas should work for you.
This umbrella is quite large around and will cover quite a bit of space. It has a non-rust aluminum pole with a three-position tilt (something my umbrella does not have and I wish it did!). It also has a crank operation and a polyester fabric that will withstand the elements. Just don't leave it up in a storm unless you want to see it crash through your neighbour's window. We've left ours up in some bad storms after not realizing our children have played with it (kids!) and all of the fabric ripped through. My lovely in-laws sewed all of the rips for us and it is now good as new. If it wasn't, I would be jumping on this deal.
It doesn't come with a base, but luckily I found one on clearance that works great with this umbrella. The wholeHome/MD 15" steel umbrella base is available in two colours and was $39.99 and now $21.95.
Shipping is going to be free on your umbrella or umbrella and base purchase as it reaches the minimum of $50. If you are purchasing more than this item, you might want to check which coupon codes could work for your order. Sears codes can be finicky and don't always work on everything (only on select items), but you should always, always, always, try every available coupon code on your order before you checkout. You never know what kind of extra discount you can get.
