Black Friday is always looked upon as the biggest shopping day of the year. People rush out at the crack of dawn in hopes of scoring an unbeatable bargain. This year Black Friday has a run for its money because the Day After Christmas or “Black Monday” is expected to have a huge success. It is the last day of the year to really shop til’ you drop!
The Day after Christmas otherwise known as Boxing Day is looked over because of the insignificant timing it offers when it comes to holiday shopping. On December 26th, it is safe to say Christmas is over but commercial Christmas is not. With the dramatic increase in retail shopping , this year has seen the most money spend by consumer since 1987. Though there is a constant rant on the recession we are in, the times did not discourage the sales. Many people choose to get all their shopping out the way before Christmas. While some people just dread the whole holiday shopping in general.
While regular shoppers will be lounging around and enjoying their new gifts before they have to go back to work, you could snag the once-of-the-lifetime discounted prices without the aggressiveness of massive crowds. Unwanted gifts in need of exchange or return and unforgettable sales will flourish the malls and shopping centers. Shopping is made ridiculously simple with the access of online shopping. Digital Post-Christmas sales were available as early as Christmas morning. The frugalista will shine upon you as your order that hot New Years dress at a fraction of the regular price.(By the way, Post-Christmas sales are available on target.com, macys.com, gap.com, and jcrew.com!)
In case you think you are in for a gimmick, let’s do some number crunching. According to the National Retail Association, Black Friday sales gave you an average of thirty-percent off regular prices while “Black Monday” sales will rocket you an average of seventy-percent off regular prices—Yes, a forty percent decrease! Patience is truly virtue.
Stores swiftly clear out their inventory for space for the next season’s items or just a fresh stock. In the last days of the year, sales intensives as consumers spend yet continue to concern on the price and value on their spending. “Black Monday” gives a saving worth the waiting and worth the extra penny. Post-Christmas sales are not here to cut your pocket deep but to encourage you to lead into the New Year abundantly and frugally.
