Looking to buy an iPad or a TV for someone on your holiday shopping list this year?
Good news — they’re going to be a lot cheaper.
While last year’s holiday retail sales figures were less than stellar, the National Retail Federation is predicting that, beginning on Black Friday, there will be plenty of people shopping for the 2010 holiday season.
We’re not completely out of the economic woods, according to WalletPop, but there’s good news for consumers. Big-ticket items like electronic gadgets, flat-panel TV sets, toys and laptop computers will all be on deep discount this year.
With many shoppers still feeling the pinch of the recession, the biggest buying rush of the season is likely to happen on Black Friday, traditionally the time to get the best bargains.
Local retailers are no exception, and we’ve compiled a list of Black Friday deals here in Chambana.
“If consumers have been waiting for the best deals possible, their wait is over,” says Phil Rist, Executive Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at BIG Research in an NRF statement to the media. “Even though consumers will be watchful of their spending this year, shoppers may find bargains too good to pass up and will treat themselves to something they’ve had their eye on for months.”
In fact, some retailers are so eager to whet shoppers’ appetites that they have even promised to open their doors one day early — on Thanksgiving.The Washington Post reports that Toys R Us was be open on Turkey Day.
