JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Businesses are slashing prices on special items for the holiday season and electronics continue to be in high demand. Friday expect deep discounts. For instance an HP Pavilion g50 - 112nr notebook is only $349.99 at Office Depot. Another top ten on Digital Trends best bets list...a Panasonic 42- inch Viera 1080P plasma HDTV at Circuit City for $899.
Ironically we found some pretty cool deals at Walgreens Drug Store. Especially electronic gadgets. Digital Trends listed a 8 mega pixel camcorder at Walgreens as a top ten best bet for black Friday. It"s listed for $149.99. But will go on sale for $79.99 with a gift card rebate during the 7 hour sale.
We also found supplies being shipped in for tomorrows big sale at Wal Mart. That door buster sale begins at 5:00 a.m. And it's likely to be wild. "We are going to have everything prepared and have associates standing by to assist our customers. So everything is going to be organized, hopefully," said Barbara an Assistant Manager in Flowood. Piles of toys dolls and electronics are at rock bottom prices at Wal Mart and many other outlets.
Times are tight and consumers are pinching pennies. Many merchants are trying to stay solvent and hope black Friday sales will keep the doors open. Another top ten, Office Depot has an HP Pavilion g50-112nr notebook for $349.99. Pretty adequate computer for most peoples needs. Even with super deals...some analysts' predict sales for the November December gift buying season, could fall 3%.
