What Canadians May Find In Their Stockings This Year
Do Canadians and Americans shop alike, too? Yes, say analysts. While shoppers in both countries are turning increasingly to the Internet and gift cards to fulfill their Santa duties, they’re still willing to bundle up and brave the crowds, especially for shopping bargains. What will they be standing in line for this year?
Canadians should hope there are no more power outages this winter, since many of them will be getting big screen plasma televisions this year. The lack of power will also make it hard to recharge all those smartphones, tablets, or watch a movie on that BluRay disc player.
That takes care of some children at heart, but what about the actual little ones? Parents may be tired of Disney’sFrozen, but they should let it go as their little princesses will be clamoring for dolls and costumes based on characters from the mega-hit. “Toys R Us” Canada expects Doc McStuffins and Transformers figures to be big sellers this year, as well as Minecraft for older children. There will be plenty of sales offered on PlayStation this season, but plenty of eager buyers too, so get to that Black Friday sale early.
And while it won’t be on sale on the 28th at Walmart, some shoppers will be heartened to know that charitable gift giving continues to be a popular option in Canada.
