Black Friday 2015

It’s no secret nowadays. It seems that everyone is geared up for the Black Friday madness that has blossomed into the biggest retailer day of the year. If you’re in Canada and wanting to take advantage of some of the deep discounts in the U.S. there are some retailers that have already started the price cuts. – Amazon is well known for their Black Friday Deals Week. They have taken advantage of their wide selection and spread Black Friday over an entire week instead of just 1 day. There are limited amounts for each item so make sure you keep checking back for something that may fit on your Holiday list! – WalMart has taken notice that Amazon’s black friday week has been a great success, so it now has it’s own pre-Black Friday savings event online. They guarantee that you won’t beat their rock bottom prices.

Sierra Trading Post – If you haven’t shopped at Sierra Trading Post before, you need to check it out. They have quality products that are meant to last. You will be pleasantly surprised how steep their discounts are for their Pre-Black Friday savings.
