Here is a compilation of day after Thanksgiving shopping stories that I found online this evening:
1. CNN.com’s headline focused on the bargains that retailers were already offering in its story here.
2. The CBS News story online also focused on the bargains as well as estimates from some of the largest retailers that crowds this year were bigger than last year’s official first day of shoppinin its story here.
3. Fox News currently is using the same story as CNN on its home page. See here.
4. The New York Times already has a staff-written story on its Web site. I like the focus about how worried retailers opened earlier than normal this year and that Kmart was actually open on Thanksgiving. Its story is here.
My wife was out this morning at 6 a.m. It’s a tradition for her. Since we are on a vacation, the boys and I got out later, and I was able to get one present bought for her without her noticing.
Anybody find any unique shopping stories in their local media? If so, let me know.
