Black Friday / Cyber Monday – Time to Restock Your Office
Topic: WorkingPoint News | Comments Off
As many of you probably know the Friday after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, is typically the biggest shopping day of the year (fun fact: Black Friday’s name “originated in Philadelphia, where it originally was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic which would occur on the day after Thanksgiving [Source: Wikipedia]“).
It is also typically a day when stores sell their goods at heavily discounted prices, which gives you, the small business owner a fantastic opportunity. If you have been thinking of buying a new printer for your office, or perhaps that chair you sit in everyday needs to be put out to pasture; Black Friday, and/or Cyber Monday might be the day(s) to do it. The question really becomes how to avoid camping out the night before, or navigating through crowds of deal hungry people.
