Join Jolyn Felten of Bargains to Bounty and Patch editors talked about holiday shopping on Monday at 2 p.m. We'll discuss Black Friday, Cyber Monday and strategies to get the most out of your dollar this Christmas season in Macomb County. "Many retailers are beginning to understand the advantages to online shopping and will offer free shipping codes the week of Thanksgiving," Felten said. "Others will actually offer the exact same prices online–and you can shop from the comfort of your pajamas in the wee hours of the morning." Felten will offer tips for searching coupon codes, shopping online, using sales ads and scoring big ticket items. So click on the conversation above to see what everyone was talking about.
From Hall Road to Twelve Oaks, and Laurel Place to Somerset, stores are opening earlier than ever this day after Thanksgiving, if not on Thanksgiving. What do you think is appropriate?
Early birds are getting even earlier this year. Target is opening at midnight on Black Friday this year. You can shop at Toys R Us after tucking into your turkey–it opens at 9 p.m. Thanksgiving Day. Patch readers are already talking about their feelings on Black Friday's early openings on Facebook. In Macomb, reader Heather Misiewicz said she usually shops Cyber Monday, "but I'm going to brave it this year and do Black Friday." In Dearborn, reader Andrea V. Haag took the salesperson's perspective: "HATE IT! For us sales people who have to work, these retail store keep pushing up the time of opening....it's no longer Black Friday, it's THANKSGIVING!!!!"
