From our home to yours, everyone at Grand View Builders would like to wish you and your family a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday.
By now, you have already prepared for the big feast using our Thanksgiving Tips, but cooking and eating are only half of the holiday nowadays. Last year, more than 32 million Americans shopped on Black Friday, and this year, that number is expected to rise to 38 million shoppers.
With major retailers including Toys R Us, Best Buy, J.C. Penney, Macy’s and Target opening on Thanksgiving evening, the holiday deals are starting even earlier this year. Black Friday has expanded into Grey Thursday, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Small Business Saturday.
These shopping frenzies are a great time not only to pick up gifts, but also a wonderful time to buy new things for your home. From appliances small and large to technology and décor, the deals during the holidays just might be worth a trip to the shopping center.
If you are looking for great deals on technology this year, we like this list via Heavy: “Best Black Friday Sales 2013: 17 Deals Worth Fighting the Crowds.”
While it’s hard to compete with the deals from major corporations, we hope you will also consider shopping locally this year. Help support your community by purchasing at least one item from a local store this holiday season. With all that shopping, you’ll need to take a break for some energy-refilling eats. Try visiting a local restaurant and your dollars will be well spent.
Happy eating and happy shopping to you and your family this Thanksgiving weekend!
