The retail writing is on the break room wall: Both brick-and-mortar and click-and-mortar storefronts are offering bigger and better savings this holiday season âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ„Ãº and theyâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢re doing it earlier than ever.
For the nationâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢s retailers, the news is sobering: Retail sales, which average a 4 percent spike each season,âˆšÃ‡Â¬â€ will likely sufferâˆšÃ‡Â¬â€ a year-over-year decline.âˆšÃ‡Â¬â€ But for opportunistic holiday shoppers, the news is better than hearing theyâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢ll be able to borrow Aunt GertieâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢s handicapped parking pass on the morning of Black Friday.
Bfads.com is riding shotgun with your holiday shopping plans. Bfads, or Black Friday Ads, is a simple concept whose potential impact is exponentially raised by this seasonâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢s retailer dilemma. The website is basically an aggregator for storeâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢s holiday ads, including Black Friday circulars and other seasonal fishwrap inserts. Additional features include customized shopping lists, a listing of top-ranked products and comparison pages, which allow you to track items across multiple retailers.
Viewed in a vacuum, Bfads.com has modest prospects, but this year âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ„Ãº which is literally a make or break season for many in the retail industry âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ„Ãº the website is your direct line to ridiculous holiday deals like weâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢ve never seen before.
Heck, maybe itâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢s finally time to snatch up that VCR.
