So now that we’ve run into November, all of the holiday commercials have started. But here’s the one that has me perplexed:
As we all know, Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year falling on the day after Thanksgiving. So this year that date is November 29th.
Many stores are advertising Black Friday prices starting now! Why bother having Black Friday if you can get the deals 27 days ahead of schedule.
Perhaps it’s because Thanksgiving falls so late this year, that the shops are trying to maximize on the dollars in a tighter period of time. Or maybe they are trying to appeal to shoppers like me, who normally do not brave the crowds on Black Friday. Either way it’s just odd to see those adds so early in the season.
Oh well…I guess I’ll go shopping…
