Default Black Friday Ads

The Macy's ad posted at the Black Friday website last night. As I was browsing, I noticed a message stating the WalMart Black Friday ad was pulled at WalMart's requests. Kinda makes me wonder if any Cruisemates have access to any other Black Friday ads.

Black Friday is known, in the retail world, as the largest shopping day of the year. It received the name because many businesses will go from the "red" to the "black" based on that day's sales.

Take care,
Mike

This is the day I start and finish all my Christmas Shopping. It's less a browsing thing and more a hunting thing. I go through all the ads pick the items I want the night before. Then start out at 5AM at the toy store/electronics stores. I do this alone because no one can keep up with me. I will have hit 3 stores by 6:30AM. I played soccer for years, as a kid, and I'm short some I can maneuver through the crowd with ease. By noon I have all the presents wrapped and I'm working on the Christmas Cards. Then the rest of the season is mine to enjoy.

I'm heading to the States for Black Friday...I have my shopping route ready as well as the list of things to buy.

It's good for Cdn's right now, cause our dollar is doing very well.

MissKMM:

I just saw a report on the local news that The Mall Of America is expecting that 15% to 20% of its sales will be to Canadians. The strength of the Canadian dollar makes our products more lucrative. Come! Spend money! I think I'll open a souvenir shop that caters to Canadians.

I'll have to get the OK from Kuki for a "I know a Canadian Moose" t-shirt.

Take care,
Mike

Mike the problem is not only that.... retailers are still charging at the old exchange rates, and happily pocketing the difference.

example: A $34,000 car in the USA costs us 50k, for no good reason.
