TORONTO – November 28 marks this year’s Black Friday in Canada
, which means this season’s hottest items will be flying off the shelves before some of us even get the opportunity to wake up and get in our car – or for some, sleep isn’t even a viable option.A Vancouver-based RP firm Talk Shop Media told the Huffington Post
a list of items that they came up with that they plan to see on a lot of consumers’ wish list. They scanned ads from Walmart and Best Buy to make sure they were as accurate as possible. “Don’t get drawn into impulse purchases and sales and buying things you don’t need,” Blake Elyea of Grant Thornton says. “Because over the long term, there’s a significant cost to repaying those items.”As expected, most of the ‘toys’ in these ads for adults are consisting of electronics, which always seems to be on everyone’s wishlist. Top contenders this year are such as the Beats headphones by Dre, tablets (ranging from the iPad Mini/iPad Air/RCA Google Play/Samsung Galaxy Tablet/Amazon Fire HD6), Nikon / Canon Cameras, HD TVs, Xbox One consoles, Playstation 4 consoles and bundles, Fitbit Flex Wristbands, and the 16GB iPhone 6/Samsung Galaxy S5. The prices for these ideas are slightly flexible depending on what store you look at, as usual, so make sure you do some scoping before picking a destination to travel
And last but not least, the kids haven’t been forgotten. Some of their hottest items
include the Snow Glow Elsa Doll from Frozen, VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch, and a Programmable Robot.
And since Black Friday has turned into such an event, sales are starting at the beginning of the week online as well. Amazon and other sites are already promoting such sales.
