The first Sears Black Friday 2010 ads are out and have been scanned on to several websites. These Sears Black Friday 2010 ads will probably be just the first of many to get leaked to the internet, and it is going to begin a fever that will continue right through the end of November. Every year Black Friday draws customers into stores, as they look for great deals that will stretch their dollar a bit more. The holiday shopping season begins at the beginning of November, but many consumers wait until the Black Friday sales so that they can see if something that their loved ones want is going to be a marked down product.
This first Sears advertisement is for a sale that they will be having at the end of October rather than the end of November, giving customers a distinct date to hit up their Sears locations before the huge holiday sales. Sears is marking down a lot of products for Friday, October 29, hoping to create a “new” Black Friday in October. Sears is calling it “Black Friday Now”, and the sale will be for both Oct. 29 and 30 at all Sears locations. It’s an interesting move by the store chain, and definitely will get people primed to do their holiday shopping a bit earlier than usual. But will it end up working? Many people have been putting off their shopping further and further in recent years, waiting to see if sales would happen that would appeal to their gift shopping lists.
Black Friday.com has scanned in all of the Sears Black Friday Now advertisement so that people can see what will be on sale. If you end up taking a look and deciding that there is something that you want to buy, here is the Sears store locator page to make it easy to find your closest store. The reality is that sales are going to have to be great this year if people are going to go out to the stores and brave the crowds. With unemployment soaring, the economy taking a dip, and people trying to watch their money more than ever, it puts a big crimp in how much money people will be willing to spend this holiday season. Sears probably saw that and decided that they wanted to try an early Black Friday Now sale before they also have a second sale at the end of November. It will definitely be interesting to see if it works for them.
