Canadian retailer version of Black Friday? #followfriday
Us Canadians have become more aware over the last few years of the American phenomenon known as Black Friday. A result of the internet I guess. To some extent we are puzzled by it. The only thing we have to compare that to is Boxing Day sales - and we like to think that we are far more civilized, polite and happy about our early morning Boxing Day lineups. I have noticed this year that some Canadian retailers seem to be following the Black Friday trend a bit - perhaps to capitalize on Canadian awareness of the US sales.
On my porch yesterday, for example, was a Canadian Tire flyer pronouncing in large print that this Friday and Saturday is "Our biggest & best sale of the year!" The only thing missing is a Black Friday or Boxing Day sale label.
