While the occupy Wall Street movement may have somewhat tapered off as of late, another kind of occupation is well and truly in progress and growing in strength rather alarmingly. Indeed, with Black Friday all but on the doorstep once again, campers in their thousands are already claiming their spots outside Best Buy and other major stores across the nation.
With 36, 48 and even 72 hours to go until the doors officially open, campers across the board have stated that they have no intention whatsoever of missing out on the very best bargains of all this year. Needless to say, offers the likes of 42 inch TVs for $200 and laptops for $180, this is one bargain hunting opportunity that could add a little light to an otherwise gloomy 2011 for so many consumers.
The figures of this year are expected to entirely eclipse those of 2010, as both consumers and retailers alike strive to make the very best of the closing stages of a rather poor year as a whole. Furthermore, more major retailers than ever are looking to get a head start on the competition, with the likes of Target, Best Buy, Toys ‘R’ Us and Wal-Mart all technically opening their doors later this evening, rather than early tomorrow morning.
Of course, those with neither the time nor the inclination to brave the Black Friday masses are to be equally well catered for this year, with more online retailers getting in on the mix than ever before and offering striking deals across practically every imaginable category.
