There were reports shown at news sites like Huffingtonpost and NY Daily News that some store outlets like Sears and online retail store Amazon are giving pre-Black Friday ads and flyers. People are now wondering if these claims were true or are these vendors only taking advantage of the sales event moniker for their own personal profit? Let’s find out!According to several webmasters, retail stores are really giving these “gimmicks” in terms of ads and offerings – for real. However, the discounts people see on items are not “special” ones (big slash off price tags) like those on the actual sales event.You see, America is experiencing economic downturns recently – high unemployment rate, people losing their jobs etc. The result? People are scared of spending their money on goods and services. This is not totally good for the economy since if goods and services are not bought, more and more employees will get lay off since manufacturers will not sacrifice his profit for his workers. This cycle will continue unless retail stores will come up with ads, offers and gimmicks.Even before Halloween, Sears had already revealed its Black Friday ads 2010 and doorbuster deal offering as well as Amazon, Walmart, Target and other popular shopping outlets in the country. They clearly said that these offerings will continue until the main Black Friday event. In which they will give the usual jaw-dropping low prices.So don’t despair, you can still avail of these early discounts if you are excited to go forth and spend your money. But as they say, the good stuff will come out last. So my advice is: Be patient.
