Bon-Ton Releases Black Friday Preview, will open at 6pm Thanksgiving Day

Thursday, Oct 23, 2014 at 8:12 PM

Bon-Ton Department Store released a sneak peek at its Black Friday ad this evening, and additionally has announced plans to open its doors at 6pm on Thanksgiving Day, a full 2 hours earlier than last year. The early hours should be no surprise, as we predicted that 6pm would be the standard at least amongst department stores after Macy’s announced their own 6pm start time.

Bon-Ton Black Friday Preview 2014“After Thanksgiving is the traditional kick-off for the holiday shopping season,” commented Steve Byers, Executive Vice President of Stores for The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. “Customers will find exceptional deals and unique gifts for the entire family at Bon-Ton. We’re committed to giving our customers an enjoyable holiday shopping experience.”

In addition to the Black Friday deals, Bon-Ton shoppers can expect to find an array of early bird coupons and deals. The first 200 shoppers in the door at 6pm will received a gift card worth between $5 and $250. In-store doorbuster pricing will be in effect until 3pm on Black Friday, while supplies last.

Get “Back to Black Friday” with Record Store Day’s Special Releases

Thursday, Oct 23, 2014 at 10:24 AM

Record Store Day Black FridayLocal, independent record stores are the antithesis of mainstream Black Friday in so many ways. They don’t release circular ads, people don’t typically camp out near them, and many of them pride themselves on their anti-corporate structure.

That said, Black Friday has become and important day for indie record stores over the past few years. In 2007, the creators of Record Store Day came up with Back to Black Friday as a way to celebrate locally owned record stores and to offer vinyl addicts like myself the opportunity to score some seriously sweet reissues, colored vinyls, box sets, and more.

LEGO Releases 2014 Holiday Toy Catalog

Monday, Oct 20, 2014 at 2:14 PM

Lego Holiday CatalogLEGO is one of those toy companies that truly appeals to everyone. I personally know a 26-year-old married man with a LEGO collection that takes up his entire garage, a 7-year-old boy genius who can build even the most complicated LEGO sets in a matter of hours (without directions!), and a 13-year-old girl who isn’t ashamed to show off her Star Wars LEGO collection to her middle school friends. Anyone who’s ever sat down with a set knows there’s something fundamentally entertaining about playing with LEGOs. There’s no limit on what you can create, which puts an infinite number of cars, buildings and entire worlds at your imaginative fingertips.

Needless to say, the products inside the 2014 LEGO Holiday Toy Catalog are sure to make a big splash at holiday celebrations around the globe. The catalog features LEGO sets based on year’s hottest films (think ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘The Lego Movie’), old favorites like Batman and Star Wars, DUPLO block sets for younger LEGO fans and for old pros, the LEGO Architect series, which allows users to build replicas of famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and the White House. With so many options, it would be hard NOT to find something for the LEGO fan on your list.

5 Important Reasons Why Black Friday Campouts Aren’t Worth It for Most of Us

Wednesday, Oct 15, 2014 at 4:38 PM

It seems that every year a few die hards make the local news by spending a week or more camped out in front of a store, usually Best Buy, so they can be the first in line for a doorbuster deal on a television or some other bit of electronics. Is it really worth it?

Kurt Johnson certainly thought so, spending two days camping out in front Best Buy last year, drawn by the prospect of a 55″ Samsung LED TV for $800.

I think if I had waited without a plan and just for the TV then it would not have been worth it,” Johnson, owner of fitness company Swoll For Life, said. “But I had friends come by and had a little tailgate setup going so it ended up being kind of a fun urban camping experience on its own that happened to come with a great TV at the end.”

When presented with the idea of doing it again, however, Johnson was more ambivalent. “[I'm] probably not camping this year, but that’s because I’m going to visit family out of town. I might consider it in the future if I have some friends willing to hang out and make it fun again. I wouldn’t camp out by myself just for a good deal.”

Amazon Releases the Year’s Biggest Toy List Yet

Wednesday, Oct 15, 2014 at 10:51 AM

Amazon Toy List 2014If you’re gonna be late, you better go big. Weeks after Black Friday giants like Target, Toys ‘R’ Us and Kmart released their holiday toy lists, Amazon has followed suit with their own 2014 Holiday Toy List, which may just be the most comprehensive compilation of toys we’ve seen this season. While most of the other toy retailers’ lists feature under 20 toys, Amazon’s is packed full of HUNDREDS of dolls, Lego sets, movies, tablets, and much, much more.

According to a press release Amazon put out this morning: “For the first time, the annual Holiday Toy List includes commentary from Amazon product experts and toy enthusiasts on the latest toy trends.” The toys are also divided up into 25 different categories, including new ones like “Mom Picks,” “S.T.E.M.” and “Wood & Recycled.” Amazon customers can also filter their search based on age, gender, brand and price range, making it simple to find the perfect holiday gift for all the kids on your list.
