For Canadians, Thanksgiving already seems like a long way off, but if you have cable TV, you’re probably aware that the American version of Turkey Day is right around the corner. And as with most things, Americans do it bigger – and they totally outdo us by capping it all off with an extra indulgence. First, they stuff themselves with turkey and root vegetables (we seem to have that part covered) and then, they shop like their lives depended on it.
But then, if you’ve been seeing ads from American retailers on TV, it’s easy to see why: door crashers, limited-time offers and the deepest discounts you’ll see all year – on everything. What’s changed from years past is that American retailers are spreading these deals south of the border – so much so that Canadian retailers are increasingly following their lead.
