Early Black Friday Sales: Are You Shopping Tonight?
Several large retailers, including Wal-Mart, Target and Toys ‘R’ Us, are offering deep discounts today–instead of waiting until Black Friday. Their goal is to boost sluggish retail sales, which have only seen a 4.1 percent growth in November and December (about flat with last year’s growth), according to the National Retail Federation. The decision has stirred up controversy with consumers and Wal-Mart employees alike, but did the negative press keep you from taking advantage of early Black Friday sales? Share your thoughts!
