The Sears Black Friday 2015 Ad for Canada has been released. This is not a leaked ad, nor is it early. The Sears Black Friday 2015 sale is taking place this weekend in Canada. As Sears is an American company, there is a correlation between the Canadian Black Friday and the American Black Friday. Once the Canadian Black Friday sale is over, the focus turns completely to the United States and the marketing departments of retailers start to build the hype for Black Friday 2015.
In case you are in Canada, you can browse the Sears Canada Black Friday 2015 ad on Sears.ca. The focus of the deals is on housewares and appliances. There are no exciting consumer electronics deals that dominate Black Friday in the United States.
The Sears Black Friday 2015 sale in Canada starts Thursday and will end on October 12 with a Cyber Monday 2015 sale.
Other American retailers with stores in Canada like Best Buy are offering Black Friday sales at the same time as in the United States.
