Will the Black Friday 2015 schedule for online and in-store sales finally get reasonable?
Black Friday 2015 is on November 27. This traditional American sales event has transformed dramatically since the online shopping has reached critical mass a couple years ago. Shoppers don't just get their Black Friday deals online, but online shopping also changed the way Black Friday is working in stores. The whole Black Friday schedule has changed. Last year Thanksgiving Day was the online Black Friday and also the in-store Black Friday.
Retailers might come to their senses this year and provide a shopping experience that is compatible with the Thanksgiving Holiday. Staples has already announced to keep its stores closed on Thanksgiving Day. The office supply retailer, who offered a record-breaking $99.99 Black Friday laptop deal last year, will only offer Black Friday sale online.
Like on the good old days, the Staples Stores open for Black Friday sale on Friday morning.
This schedule allows shoppers to use their free time on the Thanksgiving Day to shop Black Friday deals online. They can stay home and easily manage the online shopping around the Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Friday morning hard-core Black Friday fans can head out to the lines at stores to get their hands on doorbuster deals.
The Staples Black Friday plan is clean and not only convenient for consumers. It also gives most Staples employees a Thanksgiving Day holiday. Last year's Black Friday store opening hours have been all over the place. The first stores openinat 6am on Thanksgiving Day.
Online Black Friday 2015 sales will already begin as early as Friday, October 30. Thanksgiving Day could be an ideal high point for Black Friday on the web. The online deals frency would then continue on Sunday when the Cyber Monday 2015 Sale begins.
Cyber Monday has already moved to Sunday years ago, with many consumers still not knowing. We have seen in the past years many of the best Cyber Monday deals sell out on Sunday, but the mass of shoppers was online trying to find these deals on Monday. Mark your calendar. Cyber Monday 2015 is on Sunday, November 29. There is nothing bad about that. On Sunday, people are home and have time to shop. On Monday they are supposed to be at the office and working and not trying to score Cyber Monday deals.
The big trends for Black Friday 2015 deals will be again TVs, smartphones, smartwatches, video game consoles, and Windows 10 devices. Wearables and Drones will also be hot categories for the Holiday shopping seasons this year.
The first Black Friday 2015 sales will launch likely on October 30. On October 2, the first Black Friday 2015 ad has already leaked.
