Must Read

Just post!

You may have heard already that advertisements from Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy and other large retail stores were “leaked” to various media sources on the Internet, many who proceeded to publish the sales and deals. There has been no word of who has been leaking the information or the big retailers will go after them, but it does raise a couple questions. For one, does it harm Sears, Target, Kohls or other retailers to get more publicity close to the biggest shopping day of the year? Also, if they did go to a media source, would the source’s identity be protected?LeakGate: Black Friday 2010Here’s a rundown of some of the details so far.
