    nothing says Thankgiving like assualting people to get to a tv that's on special. Sadly this stupid tradition is finding its way across the border. Our customers seem to be more civil so far but it won't be long before we get the joy of seeing videos of Canadians fighting over the last sale item of whatever the hell Walmart is putting out there. It's as if they're fighting over food to feed their damn kids. so sad. This is one tradition I wish we would have left in the States.

    The underbelly of society is ready to rumble. The mob mentality is far more widespread than anyone would like to imagine.

    You think it's bad that this Black Friday nonsense has hit Canada? If so, you can imagine how horrified I was to see it being advertised over HERE yesterday.

    I think I've mentioned before how Asda (one of our biggest supermarket chains) is now owned by Walmart - well, it would appear that they didn't want their British customers to miss out on this glorious affair, so now we've got it too...

    Lovely. Our retailers have the excuse of "if we don't do it here then people will head to the States for it and it costs us money" - no clue why you guys are doing it.

    I just don't understand why anyone would want to put up with stampede like crowds to get a deal on something. I'm not sure if I've ever wanted something that much. Slowly but surely it's just gonna get more people to shop online. That's what my wife and me are doing, we have a list of items and most of them we're buying (or already bought) online or finding online and then picking up over the next week or two.

    We're doing it because Walmart's tentacles have now extended beyond North America and are taking over the entire WORRRRRLD..!

    Just saw on the news tonight about this most disgusting "tradition". America's tentacles spread far and wide.

    I don't understand this from either viewpoint

    as a shopper, there is no way I would subject myself or my family to this craziness.....it's teaching crass consumerism to kids in a vile way. I think for many tho, it's kind of a sport....like hunting and I know some people get a real high from shopping and this just takes it to a contact sport


    but from a retailers point of view...I wouldn't want all my customers to storm the store on day one of the big season, buying the loss leaders and bolting

    I'd want to roll this out so that every day there were people coming in attracted by the big deal of the day and then, unintimidated by violent hordes of shoppers, stick around to leisurely browse my higher margin items.

    just doesn't make sense to me.

    Yep. Most of my shopping is gift cards. Plus Amazon is only a click away.
