The Death of Black Friday

How Black Friday Committed Suicide

not with a bang but a whimper – T.S. Eliot

While the term Black Friday is traced back to 1961, the practice of retailers opening early on the day after Thanksgiving goes back even further. It's quite simply the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Retailers have regularly used “doorbuster's” to lure customer's on Black Friday. These limited offers are accompanied with lines and pushing and shoving, but they do attract shoppers eager to cash in on a low price item. Of course, retailers want the shoppers to visit their store for the doorbuster and hang around to complete their holiday shopping.

Eventually, one retailer broke the early 8:00 AM openings by opening at 7:00 AM, followed by a competitor at 5:00 AM and the craziness began. Now, we have Gray Thursday with major retailers opening on Thursday afternoon. How's that working?

* The 2014 Gray Thursday sales were, in general, a failure, as overall sales for the holiday weekend fell 11% compared to the previous year despite heavy traffic at the stores on Thanksgiving night.

The whole thing has turned into a mess. Retailers have to pay all the costs of being open on the holiday, labor costs, extra advertising expenses, and etc. It's all because each one wants to get the jump on the other. For what? Shoppers are purchasing whatever they're going to purchase. Spreading it out over an extra sale period accomplishes nothing.

In the case of appliances, the big brands officially started Black Friday pricing back on November 4th, and will be running their specials through December 2nd. For those who must leave the Thanksgiving table before dessert to get their early shopping fix, check out this all-in-one appliance package at your local discounter. Quantities are strictly limited. 🙂

Of course Arizona Wholesale Supply will be closed both Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday. We'll be open for business as normal on Monday.

Appliance Specials at Arizona Wholesale Supply

Check out this Special Deal at Arizona Wholesale

Although I recently finished remodeling my kitchen, my appliance background always leads me to check for deals. Unlike others, as a large builder distributor Arizona Wholesale Supply, really has everyday low prices on all appliances. Builders can't work without a reliable distributor who has the ability to be a day-to-day low price supplier.

So, when I see a special from Arizona Wholesale Supply, I pay attention. This one is an extra special special. Maybe you've been interested in induction cooking? Now is the time to take a closer look.

Let's start by reviewing the three types of electric cooktops:

Conventional electric coil element cooktops

These cooktops have been around forever, well…since the days of Thomas Edison. Coil elements are still around, but found usually only in entry level cooktops. I don't want to disparage this product, though. Coil elements are reliable, easy to replace, and heat quickly.

Ceran electric smoothtops

Ceran smoothtops have become a very popular choice in electric, largely replacing coil elements. They clean easily, heat quickly, and have become quite affordable.

Electric induction cooktops

Induction has been available for a long time, but for many years has been considered a specialty item, and only available in a few brands. That has all changed, most cooking brands include induction cooktops in their line. Induction gets your pans hot nearly instantly, cooks quickly and evenly, and turns off instantly. Induction is promoted as electric, but with all the advantages of gas. Historically, it's been priced considerably higher than other changes.

Manufacturer Closeout

Recently, induction cooktop prices have begun to drop. Nevertheless, when a super premium/luxury brand to has a closeout on induction – MORE THAN HALF OFF! it is remarkable indeed.

Electrolux Induction Hybrid Cooktops

 

*30″ Electrolux Hybrid Cooktop $798 msrp $1699
