Target's pre-Black Friday sale
While Target blames Walmart's layaway program for their holiday sales slump, they've now upped the ante by providing Black Friday deals before Thanksgiving. That's right: in addition to their "2-day sale" after Thanksgiving (which starts at midnight on Thursday) they've now announced their "4-day sale", running now through Wednesday. The deals are available both online and in-store, with Target encouraging you to "beat the rush and save with pre-Black Friday deals".
Now I have to admit: I am no longer a huge holiday shopper. I don't shop Black Friday, and at this stage in life, we don't buy many gifts. To that end, I haven't comparison shopped, so I have no idea whether this 4-day "pre-sale" is worth it or not. What about you, dear readers? Will you be shopping even earlier this year - prior to Turkey Day?
