After Christmas Sales have started earlier than the date on which they were expected. In fact, instead of 26th December, the date they ensue has shifted to 23rd December.

In a similar manner to Black Friday season, this Christmas will face an early onset of shopping frenzy. Although shoppers flock to superstores a week before Noel, the After Christmas Sales are a phenomenon in their own right too. This time around though the timing has been somewhat mismanaged. Cost prices will be cut significantly. 

Since the retail stores in the real world were facing poor sales, the online shopping has begun with a bang. And the next big thing (Valentine’s Day) will be what the retailers are looking for as a source of profitable income. The clearance sales will have products that sell at discount rates of 70%. Unbelievable as this may seem it is true. And the economic crisis that befell the market in 2008 won’t be happening this time around.

The people who will really benefit from all this are the consumers. They will get a chance to shop till they drop. And the early timing of After Christmas Sales is not a new thing at all. This has happened before. It is just that the event has receded in time to an even earlier date than normally expected.

Amazon and J.C. Penney have their own agendas with discounts on items such as Christmas trees, presents and decorations. The only logical thing we can say therefore is that After Christmas is Before Christmas this year too.
