When is the best time to Christmas Shop?
Thanksgiving is Thursday and people are planning their weekend shopping. There will be stores open on Thanksgiving Day.
I won't be shopping at any of them. Not on Thanksgiving Day and not any other day over the holidays. Soon these same stores will be opening on Christmas Day to get ahead of the After Christmas Day sales.
What's the point?
No, I'll be shopping tomorrow.
The day before Thanksgiving.
All of the stores already have their merchandise marked down for Friday. The stores will be empty.
Most of the American population will either be preparing for Thanksgiving Dinner and guests, or traveling to Thanksgiving dinner at family or friends.
Wednesday is the busiest travel day of the year!
Because of that, the stores will be empty but open. Shopkeepers and sales clerks will be happy and eager to help.
AND everything is already on sale. I'll be shopping on Wednesday!
