Called “Way Day,” it started at midnight.

The huge markdowns span over 100,000 products from outdoor dining sets and mid-century modern sofas to stunning cooking essentials to outfit your dream kitchen. The sale runs until 11:59 p.m. Thursday.


Yogurt sales

When it comes to yogurt, consumers are confused.

There are also yogurts with fewer artificial additives and more natural ingredients.

Startups have offered products that are made from plants, not dairy.

Euromonitor says consumers are overwhelmed and yogurt sales have fallen in the past two years.
