Years ago, stores tried to keep their Black Friday sales under wraps until the Thanksgiving newspaper arrived. But to generate buzz in the preceding weeks, store ads are being leaked to Black Friday Websites.
For example, GottaDeal.com has posted JC Penney’s Black Friday ad, all 72 pages of it. The ad features 47 pages of door busters. GottaDeal also has the deals at Bass Pro Shop. It’s ad features several 5-hour door busters for Friday as well as a few pages of 4-day Black Friday weekend deals. And Kohl’s 64-page ad features over 500 door busters.
Checking out the deals two weeks ahead of Black Friday is not for everyone. I work with someone who’s made it an annual family tradition to get out the Thanksgiving Day newspaper, pull out the ads, and plan their attack for Black Friday shopping. She loves the thrill of it. Times are changing. Looks like her annual traditions will as well.
And Black Friday is now almost Black Thursday. Macy’s and Kohl’s and Target are among the big stores that’ll open their doors at midnight on the Friday after Thanksgiving. So right after that turkey dinner, head out the door to be first in line at your favorite store.
