Black Friday is Coming Early This Year.

After a sluggish Halloween buying season (more browsing than buying), retailers aren’t taking any chances. It seems that Black Friday is coming early this year as pre-holiday sales and midnight openings are already in full swing. Although forecasters are predicting a relatively solid 2011 holiday shopping season, consumer caution remains an issue. However, two things are certain to shape this year’s holiday shopping landscape: the growing number of people shopping online combined with more consumers searching online for the best deals. Smart retailers are taking advantage of these statistics by planning promotional tie-ins with their websites and social media. In fact, Walmart has offered to release its Black Friday circular to its Facebook friends a week early this year. All this may just add up to some good opportunities for great deals this holiday season.
