Retailers and residents throughout America are gearing up for Black Friday, which takes place on Friday November 25th this year – the day after Thanksgiving.
In fact some retailers are really capitalising on the event this year by opening their doors at 12.01am on Friday morning, according to News-press.com. Some are even opening late Thursday night.
Online retailers should be getting ready too, as Amazon.co.uk has already started offering big deals ahead of the annual event. Checking that their online payment system works properly should be one of their top priorities; as well as ensuring their stock is running high.
Whilst they are doing that, store-based retailers may well wish to plan for the 152 million shoppers expected to descend upon America’s stores. Tbnweekly.com revealed that there will be plenty of bargains to go around though, citing the comments of Rick McAllister, a retail expert.
“There’s a sense of momentum as we head into next year and retailers are already aggressively advertising to get shoppers into the buying mood,” he stated. “Stores are discounting to keep the sales going, so there will be a lot of great bargains to be had.”
McAllister concluded by confirming that it won’t just be retailers that are slammed this Christmas, adding: “Santa is going to be busy this year, and he’s hiring plenty of elves.”
