Are You a Black Friday, Small Business Saturday or Cyber Monday Shopper?

How do you do you do your shopping for Christmas gifts?

Every year there is an increased drive to get shoppers into stores. Black Friday now gets an early start on Thanksgiving Thursday, Buy Local campaigns push Small Business Saturday shopping and technology and social media sites encourage Cyber Monday logins. The message is clear - shop early and shop often.

So what is your shopping style for the holidays? Will you be shopping off your Thanksgiving meal on Thursday or Friday, supporting the small businesses in your area on Saturday or is the computer your preferred shopping mall on Cyber Monday? There are, of course, the traditional procrastinators too. Are you one of those shoppers found at the local drug store just before closing time on Christmas Eve?

Let us know how you expect to get your Christmas shopping done this year.

I think most men don't fall under one of these categories. I think many of them wait until 11:58 on December 24th and get whatever is available at the QT.

Cyber Monday by far gives you the best bang for your buck. Walmart is offering free shipping. The most important day is Small Business Saturday! Support your local Business. Stop making excuses for not stopping in Old Town Flowers and Gifts and look thru the 100's of gifts from $1.00 to $25.00 in the shop. Then walk next door to the fresh market for a Hot Apple Cider. Easy Parking and No Hassle so whats your exceuse Lilburn this time ?

When my daughter was young, I was very much a Black Friday shopper. However, I finally realized it was more about the chase and I ended up buying more than I planned on. I am now more a Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday shopper. Support the local business', they are who support our youth leagues, etc.

Actual Krogers closes at 6pm on Christmas Eve. Mr.B will have to do his shopping QT or Waffle House now has Gift Certificates.
