Black Friday in Grand Junction Colorado

Grand Junction Co Shopping

I love a bargain like everyone else but I wait for the prices to come down before I shop.  I saw a great deal at Best Buy for a TV for $199.00. The sale was to start at midnight. I was going to friends for Thanksgiving so the chances of leaving their house close to midnight were good. I thought I can do that!. I took a drive to our Best Buy at around 5 to see what was happening. There were at least 100 people at 5 waiting for the store to open. I decided that saving a little money was not worth the hasstle. An article in this morning’s paper stated that a mathematician determined that the best bargains were in the early part of December or after Christmas. I can wait at home where it is warm.

Those people are nuts who wait out in the cold. They can get a better bargain with out the camping. I was in retail 20 years I know what Black Friday is about. Getting back in the black financially. The loss leaders are what bring people into the stores. I manufactured my merchandise. I made a huge profit because I bought it from myself at a profit, and then sold to my customers at a profit. When I wanted to stimulate sales, I bought from myself an item for a dollar and sold it for two. I only had that one item on sale. When people came in, they found other things to buy. Large retailer’s markup a lot of merchandise during these events and then have these items go on sale the following week. It is all a big game. I do not play! The best shopper is an informed shopper. Research,find out where the real bargains are hiding. The latest Best Buy loss leader was a 40-inch TV that they had manufactured by Sharp for Best Buy’s Black Friday. Every store had ten. The TV was a real bargain. It had a cheap exterior but high quality Sharp components inside. My guess is that TV will be re-issued with a bigger but competitive price and a better exterior.  I do look for bargains but I am not sitting outside all night waiting for the stores to open at midnight. -

I did what I call Brown Saturday in the Colorado Springs Chapel Hills Mall. It really wasn't too bad. Sierra got some great deals on a bunch of clothes, and I get to pay the bill.
