Let the shopping games begin
November 23, 2010 - Art Smith
If the shopping were a sport this weekend would be the Super Bowl, the World Series and the Daytona 500 all wrapped up in one.
Like any successful team you need a game plan to be successful in a sport. Now is the time to start planning how to best take advantage of what has become the annual tradition of post Thanksgiving shopping. Your Thursday newspaper will be your game guide. As usual it will be as stuffed with dozens of inserts promoting thousands of items on sale. You can find a list of locations where The Marietta Times is on sale here.
The early shopping online is a fairly recent addition to the game. Black Friday, so named because it is very profitable for the businesses, has in the past been followed by Cyber Monday, a day when employees return to work and switch their shopping to their desktops.
Regardless of how you shop this weekend. Remember to pace yourself and enjoy the game.
