Find Boxing Day prices in November
(NC) The hunt for holiday bargains is on, and in more recent years, Boxing Day hasn't been the only source of great deals for Canadians. Black Friday, known as the busiest shopping day of the year in America, has grown in popularity north of the border.
Popular bargain hunting website RedFlagDeals.com reported that in 2012, it listed Black Friday deals for Canadian shoppers from more than 140 retailers, marking a significant increase from 2011. In 2012, participating retailers included Amazon, Apple, Best Buy, Chapters Indigo, Future Shop, Sears, and Walmart.
This year, Black Friday falls on November 29. If you want to track down participating retailers and the best deals, websites like RedFlagDeals.com have extensive Black Friday coverage. General manager, Ran Ravitz explains: "Canadian retailers will be offering very competitive prices. Even if the event didn't originate here, retailers want to keep customers on this side of the border." Ravitz adds that while it was a big event in 2012, he expects even more deals in 2013.
On the subject of where to find the best deals, Ravitz believes that online retail has a lot to offer. “Online shopping gives everyone a chance to get good deals,” he explains. “You can get to sales the minute they start, compare prices quickly, and even find extra discounts.”
With big discounts on the line and a chance to find holiday shopping bargains, it might be time to mark November 29th, this year's Black Friday, on your calendar.
